How the F1 Drivers' Championship Winner is Determined

The F1 Drivers' Championship is awarded to the driver who accumulates the most individual points during the F1 season. Drivers get more points the better they finish in each race. Points are given out as follows for each race:

  • 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

There is also a bonus point given to the driver who has the fastest lap of the race, as long as they finish in the top 10.

In the event of a tie in points between two or more drivers, the driver with the most wins is declared the champion. If there is still a tie, the driver with the most second-place finishes is declared the champion, and so on. If there is still a tie after all tiebreakers have been exhausted, the drivers will be declared co-champions.

The F1 season typically consists of 23 races, held in countries around the world. Each race is a standalone event, with drivers competing to finish in the highest position possible to earn as many points as possible. The driver who accumulates the most points over the course of the season is declared the champion.

The F1 Drivers' Championship is one of the most prestigious and coveted titles in any motorsport, with some of the greatest drivers in history having won the championship multiple times.

The competition is intense, and the margin between winning and losing can be incredibly small. The championship is a true test of skill, endurance, and consistency, and only the best drivers in the world are able to win it.

2024 F1 Drivers' Championship Winner Pick

It's extremely difficult to choose any driver other than Max Verstappen going into the 2024 F1 season. Max was dominant in 2022 and 2023, and there's no signs of him slowing down.

Right now, it looks like Max will coast to another title, and his odds reflect it at -670.

If you'd rather go for an underdog, Lando Norris (+1400), Sergio Perez (+3300), and Charles Leclerc (+1000) all have at least a chance to win their first title.

You can also never count out Lewis Hamilton—the 7-time champion who dominated the 2010s. While Mercedes took a step back in 2022 and 2023 compared to pretty much the entire previous decade, Lewis is still one of the best—if not the best—drivers on the track race after race. If Mercedes can get their car running better, Lewis is worth a longshot bet. Currently, Lewis' odds are at +1600.
