Sergio Perez has defended Formula One’s controversial new double points rule for the 2014 season finale.

With the sport moving to ensure the championship stays alive throughout the season, the double points rule was greeted with uproar among fans and slammed by dominant 2013 champion Sebastian Vettel as “nonsense.”

But Mexican Perez, a McLaren driver this year who is moving to Force India for 2014, admitted on Thursday he does not agree with the naysayers.
