Important numbers

Let’s recall here the points that can be won per race :

  • 1st : 25 points
  • 2nd : 18 points
  • 3rd : 15 points
  • 4th : 12 points
  • 5th : 10 points
  • 6th : 8 points
  • 7th : 6 points
  • 8th : 4 points
  • 9th : 2 points
  • 10th : 1 point

Also, for each race, the best lap in the race gives an additional point if the driver who obtains it finishes in the first 10.

Calculation over a year

In 2023, we have 23 races planned, including 6 with sprints.

At most, a driver who wins everything and has the best lap in the race each time can win at most: 23 races * (25 points + 1 point from the best lap) + 6 sprint races * 8 points = 646 points !

The single-season record held by Lewis HAMILTON in 2019 with 413 points has been beaten by Max VERSTAPPEN in 2022 with 454 points !
