ECCLESTONE PUSHES FOR DOUBLE POINTS: GRAND PRIX reported F1 CEO Bernie Ecclestone has written a letter to F1's 11 teams, "arguing that the controversial new 'double points' rule should be extended to the final three races of the season." Three races was always Ecclestone's plan, but "many team bosses refused to agree."
