Double points plan not extended

Formula 1 bosses have decided against extending the double points scheme to the final three races of the season. A proposal by F1 supremo Bernie Ecclestone to extend the scheme from the last race of the season was discussed at a strategy group meeting. Participants agreed not to reveal details, but a source close to the talks told BBC Sport that the plan was rejected. Members needed to agree unanimously for the proposals to be passed. The strategy group comprises Ecclestone, Jean Todt, the president of governing body the FIA, and six teams. Ecclestone and the FIA have six votes each and the teams six between them.
