Formula One are set to go full steam ahead with a controversial plan to double the points of the final race of the 2014 calendar.

Bernie Ecclestone's proposal was first raised at the latest rules meeting, with no attempt to overturn it from a team boss in a proposal which will now be seen for the first time next season.

Ecclestone thinks the idea will help keep F1 alive and add to the anticipation if the championship comes down to the wire.

The idea could also help to combat Sebastian Vettel's recent run of dominance in the sport, after the Red Bull driver won his fourth championship in as many years last season.

Ferrari president Luca Di Montezemolo argued that he was "not enthusiastic" about the plan, telling BBC Sport that it was"too artificial."

However, no team raised a problem with the upcoming changes or put forward an argument against them when the ideas was unveiled, meaning they will be put into action this season at the final race.

The 2014 F1 calendar begins on the 16 March at the Australian Grand Prix, with the final race featuring an added incentive coming on 23 December in Abu Dhabi.
