How are Formula 1 points awarded? 

The finishing positions of drivers and teams determine how many points they receive. The winner receives 25 points, the second-place finisher receives 18 points, and the third through tenth positions receive 15, 12, 10, 8, 6, 4, 2 and 1 points, respectively.

The driver who has the fastest lap of the race will earn an additional point if they finish in the top 10 positions.

In the event that a race is abandoned before reaching 75% of the planned distance, all points are halved. 

Prizes and points are shared equally among all those who tie in a dead heat. 

The driver (or team, for the Constructors’ Championship) with the most points wins the championship. 

If two or more drivers have the same number of points, priority is given to the driver with more race wins. 

If the number of wins is the same it will be decided on the most second places and so on.

Teams vie for positions in the table that will determine their payout from F1 at the end of the season in the World Constructors’ Championship, where every point counts. 

There is a significant amount of money awarded based on WCC standings – 23.75% of F1 profits – and a percentage of the revenue generated by the championship is shared between the 10 teams. 

There is also a percentage of the income that does depend on where teams finish in the championship standings.

Williams in 2020 should receive around $15million (£11million) while Mercedes as champions were rewarded with approximately $66million (£48million).

In addition to this, Ferrari also receives an extra payment for the history and prestige they bring to the sport. 

F1 Points System (for Drivers and Constructors)

  • Winner (1st) – 25 points
  • 2nd position – 18 points
  • 3rd position – 15 points
  • 4th position – 12 points
  • 5th position – 10 points
  • 6th position – 8 points
  • 7th position – 6 points
  • 8th position – 4 points
  • 9th position – 2 points
  • 10th position – 1 point
  • Fastest lap – 1 point

How has Formula 1 point scoring changed over the years? 

Adding a bonus point for the fastest lap may have seemed revolutionary when it was introduced last year by the sport’s owners Liberty Media – in reality, it was a throwback to decades past.

Up until the 1960 season, when Jack Brabham won the title, an extra point was awarded for the fastest lap in F1. It made little difference to the overall result, as he was well clear of Bruce McLaren and had a number of fastest laps himself.

This point was instead redistributed throughout the field. Until that point, points were only awarded to the top five drivers in a race (eight of them to the winner) and only the best four or five race results counted for the championship.

For the first time in 1960, points were awarded to the top six, and in 1961 the winner was awarded nine points. Those points were rounded up to 10 in 1991, but the six places in which the winner is awarded points remained the case for more than 40 years, until a revamp in 2002 extended that to eight and another in 2010 made it the top 10, when the winner became 25 points.
