It's a tough argument, there are strong cases for both sides. I don't believe that punishing the driver as directly as this is fair, but the driver's championship is where 9/10 of the money comes from in advertising and sponsorship etc. Money=developement=faster car=wins (sort of, i know that doesn't actually work, but it's the principal). Punishing only constructors points would have very limited effect. A far fetched idea that may work: A team is allocated a certain number of gearboxes a year, and if they all break, the team is issued with a standard, pretty abysmal but practically unbreakable gearbox. The punishment is the loss in performance and can be prevented by both driver and team.
