Formula One Points Systems

In its 60-year history, Formula One has seen six different points structures, and for many years the championship also discarded several of a driver's lowest results, presumably to mitigate the damage of getting a couple of DNFs during the season. Here is the list of F1 points scoring systems.

In recent years the points structure has changed to award points to more than the traditional top six finishers—first switching to a top eight structure, and now to a top ten structure. This helps to create some points separation between mid-pack and backmarker teams.

The other significant change between points structures is the changing of the value of a race win relative to second place:

Era1st Place2nd Place% of 1st
1950 to 19608 pts6 pts75%
1961 to 19909 pts6 pts67%
1991 to 200210 pts6 pts60%
2003 to 200910 pts8 pts80%
201025 pts18 pts72%

From 1991 to 2002 the value of a win was at its greatest, when the 2nd place finisher received only 60% of the points awarded to the winner. This encouraged drivers to fight for the win, because a driver with several wins and a few DNFs could score higher than a driver who always finished strong but never won a race.

From 2003 to 2009 the value of a win was at its lowest, when the 2nd place finisher received 80% of the points awarded to the winner. This encouraged less risky driving because a steady record of high points finishes was better than risking a DNF by driving aggressively for the win.

Starting in 2010, the value of a win was increased again, with the 2nd place finisher getting 72% of the points of the winner.

The links at the top of the page allow you to compare the current season's point structure to the 2003-2009 era (when the value of a win was at its lowest) and the 1991-2002 era (when the value of a win was at its highest). Note that the 'P' column always shows the current season ranking, so you can easily see where the order gets flipped around under a previous points structure.

Starting in 2019, a bonus point is awarded for the fast lap of the race, but only if the person with the fast lap finishes in the top 10, otherwise no bonus point is awarded. A bonus point for fast lap was previously used from 1950 to 1959.

German Grand Prix    (26 - 28 July 2019)

Preview

This year's German Grand Prix is at Hockenheim.

Qualifying

Ferrari led all three practice sessions, and then qualifying happened. It was a complete disaster. First, Sebastian Vettel failed to set a Q1 time with a mechanical problem (issue with the intercooler). He will start from the back of the grid. Charles Leclerc led Q1 and easily made it to Q3, but then failed to set a time in Q3 with a fuel pump driver module failure. He will start P10 on the grid.

Race

A remarkable wet/dry race saw Max Verstappen win his 2nd race of the season, Vettel climb from dead last in P20 to finish P2, and Daniil Kvyat earn Toro Rosso just its 2nd podium ever, after Vettel's win at the 2008 Italian Grand Prix. And for the first time this year, Mercedes had no podium finishers.
