It’s been noted that Formula 1 will restructure their point system this season with a bigger difference between the winner and second place, in order to encourage drivers to go for the victory.  According to ESPN, the world rally championships have adopted the same point restructuring.  This went into effect in time for last weekend’s season-opening Swedish rally.

25-18-15-12-10-8-6-4-2-1. Points for 1st to 10th place.

Formula 1 Point System Change

Posted in Formula 1 with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , on February 8, 2010 by autoracingpower

The new 2010 points spread for Formula increases the difference between 1st and 2nd place points. Last year the difference between 1st place and 2nd place was a mere 2 points. Currently, it has been altered so 1st leads by 7 points.

This increase will hopefully serve as an incentive for the racer in second place to try and up it a bit more and take home 1st.  This is the second change to the points system made in months.  And, the reason behind this change is to motivate the drivers.

10 races will receive the following points:

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
