Big Decision on superlicence Points systems in Formula 1

- Advertisement -

Five years back, Formula 1 presented another superlicence point framework to administer who could and who couldn’t enter the sport.

Drivers can’t enter F1 now except if they score a sum of 40 points quite three years in various qualifying titles.


Has the super license points framework changed F1 – and, therefore, the lesser titles – to enhance things? Has it increased the expectation of drivers coming into the sport, and the way has it influenced the various ‘feeder’ titles?


The super license points framework is meant to ensure that drivers who inherit Formula 1 have in any event, a base degree of capacity and knowledge. The bar isn’t set superfluously high – as an example, a person who completes within the main three in Formula 2 naturally qualifies.

While the framework initially just applied to a predetermined number of titles, that has changed after a while. Today it covers an expansive scope of the arrangement, beginning with the more elite classes of kart dashing, and including non-single-seater classifications, for instance, sports vehicle and visiting vehicle hustling.

The super license points framework has had no advantageous effect on the quality of drivers coming into F1. There wasn’t a deluge of below-average drivers within the prior years it had been presented. Anyway had it shown up a year sooner it might have forestalled Max Verstappen from making his F1 debut. Would F1 indeed are exceptional off deferring the presentation of 1 of its hotshot drivers?

The framework has become hugely confounded since its presentation and unmistakably over-values a couple of titles contrasted with others.

Titles are just qualified if there are persisted in any event three unique circuits (barring karting titles). The number of points granted is diminished on a similar premise if the title highlights but 16 drivers. In an arrangement where vehicles are shared, drivers score points hooked into their FIA driver categorization, with platinum and gold drivers acquiring the complete points distribution, silver drivers 75%, bronze half, and every one others zero points.

Extra superlicence points are often earned as follows:

  • Five points for winning the FIA F3 World Cup (Macau Terrific Prix)
  • Two points for bringing about no punishment points during a title which issues them
  • One point for finishing during an event 100 kilometers in a F1 free rehearsal (up to a limit of 10 points)
