After many rumors about adopting a medal system similar to the olympics or modifying the points to better reward drivers who win races, the FOM and WMSC have agreed that future F1 champions will be the driver who wins the most races, starting this season.
Here’s the breakdown:
- The driver who wins the most races will win the world champioship, even if they have less points than another driver
- The current points system (10, 8, 6 etc.) will still be in effect and will decide the other points positions
- If two drivers win the same number of races that is more than anyone else, the total points that they have accumulated will be the first tiebreaker
- The constructors championship will not be affected
