Demerit points will make bad drivers suffer

Well-behaved drivers should not fear F1's incoming 'demerit points' penalty system, according to Felipe Massa.

Reportedly from next year, drivers will lose points against their super licenses for on and off-track indiscretions, culminating in possible race bans.

Brazilian Massa said the good drivers should not be worried.

"I think the drivers who always create problems will suffer more than the others," he is quoted by Totalrace.

"So if I continue the way I've always done in my career, I should not have problems. It's also important to educate those who are coming into formula one," added Massa.
