Formula 1 news: McLaren is calling for a review of F1’s penalty points system. Over the last few years, the penalty system has not been very fair for drivers.

McLaren said that Lando Norris might have been banned even when there was no evidence he drove dangerously. The Woking-based team are clearly unhappy with this. They are seeking answers as well.

A total of 12 penalty points accrued on a driver in a year will result in a one-race suspension. But this punishment has yet to be imposed since the system was implemented in 2014.

However, it is possible that it will happen in 2022, as certain drivers are close to crossing the line.

MClaren wants a review of F1’s penalty system

Yuki Tsunoda and Sergio Perez have eight and seven points, respectively, and must avoid achieving 12 points in the first three races of next season to prevent having some of their points wiped away before the Emilia Romagna Grand Prix.

From Red Bull’s perspective, Max Verstappen’s situation is more critical.

This is because he will carry seven points through to the Italian Grand Prix in September. And give him 15 races to negotiate before his penalty total begins to decline.

Norris, on the other hand, has less concerns with five points – none of which will be removed until June in Azerbaijan.

As per the latest Formula 1 news, McLaren is upset with how the British driver was treated by the stewards last year.

They highlighted the 2021 Austrian Grand Prix as an example, where the stewards were extremely aggressive.

Norris received two penalty points for confrontation with Perez, which even Perez’s Red Bull chief Christian Horner thought was unfair.

Last season, Norris was one incident away from a suspension. Even McLaren’s CEO Zak Brown described the scenario as insane.

Formula 1 news: How will F1 ensure penalty system?

Brown believes that the FIA will perform a review of the penalty points system.

This will be done in conjunction with the unsatisfactory events that unfolded at the title-deciding Abu Dhabi Grand Prix.

This will make sure that drivers are not forced to walk a tightrope if they do not deserve it.

Brown said that he cannot remember any single incident when Lando drove dangerously.

He stated that Lando forcing Perez off the track without touching him is one race away from losing his licence.

The focus should be on unsafe driving rather than racing incidents. More recently, the fiasco at Abu Dhabi grabbed headlines with the FIA under the microscope.

It is undeniable that everyone is focused on Abu Dhabi. But if we take a look back over the last two years there is a lot of scrubbing to be done.
