Ferrari president Luca di Montezemolo has become the latest figure from within F1 to question the decision to award double points for the final round of the 2014 season.

Under the regulation changes announced earlier this month, double points will be offered for the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix in an effort to maintain interest in the championship fight through to the season finale.

World Champion Sebastian Vettel has been amongst those to hit out at the change and di Montezemolo also admitted that he wasn't a fan, going on to suggest that he didn't expect the regulation to be a long-term move in the sport.

"I am not enthusiastic about it, because for me it looks too artificial," he said during a media event at Fiorano. "We will see. We can say we're not in favour of it, but it was a [collective] decision [to approve it].

"I think the best way to find out may be to do one year as a test. I personally have some doubts. I told this to Jean Todt and I told this to Bernie Ecclestone privately. I will not be surprised if after one year they will change it."

Team boss Stefano Domenicali meanwhile agreed that he didn't see double points as a long-term fix.

"I think, considering what is the situation, it would be not wrong to reconsider it," he said. "That means you are listening to all the interested parties."
