You already know about the existing âdrive-throughâ and â10-second stop-and-goâ penalties, right? Well, we will now also see a â5-secondâ penalty for minor delinquencies, which is
designed to offer more choice and flexibility to the stewards. Drivers will not only collect championship points (the basic points system will not change), but also penalty points.
Between 1 and 5 penalty points will be imposed, depending on the severity of an infringement (5 points for failing to respect a black or black and organge flag). Any driver
accumulating more than 12 points will be banned from the next race. Points will be removed after 12 months. Until such time, best be careful guysâ¦ donât fill the dozen! Furthermore,
drivers will feel the full sorrow of a grid penalty as it will be carried over: If you get a penalty of 10 grid places, but you only qualified 18th of 22 runners, a 6 place grid penalty will be
carried over to the next race! This is major as it will stop teams from deliberately changing stuff on their cars (taking a grid penalty for that race) when they qualify poorly.
