The FIA need to rethink the penalties involved for changing a gearbox or engine due a technical failure. Why penalise the driver??
To me that's grossly unfair. Rather penalise the TEAM by deducting points from the constructors championship. This will allow the drivers championship to remain unaffected, whilst penalising those responsible.
