I think going towards a points penalty is going to be whats happened. I remember a couple of months back that option being a hot topic on the pre-races shows and between practice sessions and it seems to have plenty of support. But at the same time Ferrari would probably have been hit pretty hard with this recently and like was said that would greatly benefit the Mercedes teams who have had very good engine reliability recently, So i could see it taking a while to bring any change to the way penalties are handled. On This, Would you still have the driver starting wherever he qualified? as in theory you could then see teams swap an engine to gain an advantage at a track they are good at and in that situation if they get a 1&2 instead of a 3&4 or 1&3 suddenly 5 points is very worth the price to do so.
