Rules –

Pre-War Drivers’ Championship –

Unlike the current World Championship the inter-war European Championship was won by the driver with the least amount of points. The points system is as follows:

  • Winner – 1.
  • Second – 2.
  • Third – 3.
  • Completed over 75 per-cent distance – 4.
  • Completed between 50-74.99 per-cent – 5.
  • Completed between 25-49.99 per-cent – 6.
  • Completed less than 24.99 per-cent – 7.
  • D.Q., D.N.S., D.N.P. – 8.

Pre-War Constructors’ Championship –

The sum total of each constructors’ cars at each event.

Rookies’ Championship –

The first rookie driver (Haryanto, Palmer and Wehrlein) to finish the race is awarded 25 points, second gets 18 points and third 15. Drivers must be classified finishers to score. Should they finish the race in the top 10 then any real-life points are added to their haul. For example if the first rookie home is ninth overall they would score 27 points (25+2). Bonus points will be awarded to any rookie who takes pole-position (4) or sets the fastest-lap of the race (2).

Engines’ Championship –

The race-winning engine make receives 25 points. The second engine make to finish the race, regardless of position, gets 18 points, the third 15, fourth 12, fifth 10, sixth 8, seventh 6 and eighth 4. They must power one classified finisher to score.

Nations’ Championship –

The country of the race-winning driver gets 25 points. The second nationality to finish the race, regardless of position, gets 18 points, the third 15, fourth 12, fifth 10, sixth 8, seventh 6, eighth 4, ninth 2 and tenth 1. A country must have a classified finisher to score.

Chase for the Championship –

All drivers (but a minimum of 10) that have scored a podium finish between the Australian and Japanese Grand Prix qualify for the Chase for the Championship.

At the United States Grand Prix the highest seven finishers of these drivers advance to the next round, the rest are eliminated. At the Mexican Grand Prix the top five advance, and at the Brazilian Grand Prix the top three advance. At the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix the first of these three remaining drivers to finish the race (or is highest classified) wins the championship.

Drivers’ Laps Championship –

The driver who completes the most laps in the season wins the title.
