New Rule - Grid Penalty Carry Over

I just want to know what people think of this new rule? i think it's quite unfair on the middle and bottom of the table teams...

basically your a marussia or caterham driver, you qualify 19th, you have a 10 place grid penalty, you qualify 19th.... with the carry over, your going to be demoted to 22 fo race 1.... you qualif 19th again for race 2, back to 22nd, then same for race 3, then 1 more place for race 4.... very unfair i think

top teams rarely qualify lower than 10th, and even rarer is the case they'll have a +10 grid penalty from that position, so they are only going to be disadvantaged in 1 event instead of over several

your thoughts?

Why have I not heard of this before? I think it sounds very stupid. It would be better to force them to start from the pitlane or something. What happens if you qualify every race in 22nd? If chilton had gotten a 10 place grid penalty in Italy, it still would not be completely served with this rule. Very stupid rule I think.

The penalty can only carry over once, not to several races. Also, this has been known for at least half a year or something like that.

I think the 'drive-through within 5 laps' was the best solution for teams at the back
