FRANKFURT, Germany (AP) -- Four-time Formula One champion Sebastian Vettel has ridiculed a decision to give double points in the final race of the upcoming seasons, calling it "absurd."

The German driver says the decision by the sport's governing body "punishes those who have worked hard for a whole season."

The idea behind the decision is to add more suspense to the season's finale. Vettel won this season's title with three races to spare.

Vettel says he respects "old traditions in the Formula One" and doesn't understand the new rule.

Vettel tells Sport-Bild magazine, "imagine if there were suddenly double points in the final round of the Bundesliga."
