Bernie Ecclestone has said he would like to see more double points races introduced into F1, although he admits that the regulation could be dropped for 2014.

Earlier this month it was confirmed that double points would be handed out for next year's season finale in Abu Dhabi, although the move has attracted widespread criticism from fans and paddock figures alike.

Commercial rights holder Ecclestone has now had his say on the matter by revealing that he would like to see the final three races run with double points to keep the championship battle alive, rather than it simply coming down to the season finale.

However, the 83-year-old conceded that the controversial plans could be dropped as soon as next month when the next meeting of F1's strategy group is due to take place.

"Personally my preference would be for the final three races to be worth double points," he told the Daily Telegraph.

"But it may well be that the rule is cancelled altogether at the next [Strategy Group] meeting in January. I think it should be the final three races or nothing.

"The final three races would mean the championship is kept interesting for everyone - fans, press and television - right until the end."
