The season has seen casual fans finally return to motorsport after dominating spells from the likes of Hamilton and Sebastian Vettel before him.

But it can be confusing how points are calculated for each F1 race.

How does F1 scoring work?

Points are awarded on a scale for a Grand Prix win, with first place taking 25 points and the rest of the field giving 10th place for points.

  • First place – 25 points
  • 2nd – 18 points
  • 3rd – 15 points
  • 4 – 12 points
  • 5 – 10 points
  • Friday – 8 points
  • 7 – 6 points
  • 8th – 4 points
  • 9th – 2 points
  • 10th – 1 point
  • 11-final – 0 points

Are F1 points awarded for fastest lap?

Correct. One championship point is awarded to the driver with the fastest lap in any Formula One Grand Prix.

But only if they finish in the top 10 of a Grand Prix race.

This is to avoid a rider at the bottom of the field giving up on winning the race and stepping back to make the fastest lap.

How are points awarded if the F1 race is cancelled?

If the race is abandoned before 75% of the distance is completed, all points will be halved.

This happens in the 2021 season at the Belgian Grand Prix.

Are championship points awarded in the F1 Sprint?

Correct. The F1 Sprint is a new format first introduced in 2021 that aims to break the sometimes dull cycle of practice-major qualifying.

The top three places in the Sprint Race are rewarded as follows:

  • 1 – 3 points
  • 2nd – two points
  • 3rd – one point
