Debate of the Day: Will changes to F1 grid penalty rules work?

At the final FIA World Motor Sport Council meeting of the year it was confirmed any driver who exceeds 15 grid place penalties will be automatically forced to start from the back of the grid, effectively ending the huge number grid penalties seen in recent seasons. With the confusing numbers of 25, 30, or even 55 grid drops seen last season for engine changes scrapped will it help F1 end its confusing penalty rules? Any driver with more than 15 place drops will start from the back but if multiple drivers break the limit they’ll be order by who picked up the penalties first.
