Drivers collect penalty points for causing incidents on track. Once a driver has accumulated 8 penalty points, 10 championship points will be removed from their overall championship tally. Download the latest penalty points table below.
Penalty points are awarded as follows:
Black and white flag – 1 point
5 second penalty – 2 points
10 second penalty – 3 points
1 lap penalty – 4 points
DQ/Black flag* – 5 points
*For causing on track incidents only. E.g. a black flag for missing mechanical flags or for being underweight would not result in penalty points.
