LONDON (AP) - Formula One’s ruling body says it may put off a new points system for the sport until next season after the racing teams objected.

The Formula One Teams’ Association said Friday that FIA’s ruling this week that the championship will go to the driver with the most race wins rather than the highest total points was invalid.

FIA now says it is prepared to defer the change until the 2010 season. The proposed change met with criticism from drivers including world champion Lewis Hamilton and Fernando Alonso.

This year’s season starts March 29 with the Australian Grand Prix.
