Ricciardo: penalty points 'need a lot of thought'

"They have to be careful with how they do it," he warned. "A one-race ban is a really big penalty, but obviously it will take a bit to get up to 12 points so you've probably earned your one-race ban if you lose 12 points."

But Ricciardo is certainly not against the system in principal and reckons that it might help avoid some of the in-race penalties that seem grossly unfair but which can't be undone retrospectively.

"I think the toughest one is if you're racing, you have an incident and you get a drive-through or something," he agreed. "If the incident is not so clear that's when it really hurts you, so in that respect it would probably be a better thing to have a decision after the race."
