F1 Standings

It’s important to understand what you’re looking at when it comes to the Formula 1 standings. The winner of the F1 season will be the driver with the most points at the season’s end in November.

It’s also important to know how the drivers get these points. The winner of the race gets 25 points. Second place gets 18, 15 for third, 12 for fourth, 10 for fifth, 8 for sixth, 6 for seventh, 4 for eighth, 2 for ninth and 1 for 10. The drivers outside of the top 10 aren’t awarded points. The driver with the fastest lap is also awarded a point, but the driver has to finish in the top 10 to receive that extra point.

F1 Season Explained

The F1 season is one of the most anticipated of any sports league around the world, not just in racing. The original plan for the 2022 season was to have a total of 23 races, but was reduced to 2022 due to Covid-19. The schedule starts in mid to late March and ends in late November.

Over the course of a season, the F1 points standings will change from week-to-week. It may turn out to be a battle at the top between one or two drivers, or it could turn into a battle for third place down the stretch. With all of the change going on, there will likely be some opportunities for value on futures that may not have shown as much value as they did the week before.
