Championships[edit]

Points are awarded to all race finishers, with unclassified entries failing to complete 70% of the race distance or entries failing to reach the finish not earning championship points. One bonus point is awarded for winning pole position (denoted by bold), and a further bonus is awarded (denoted by parenthesis). Entries which change an engine prior to the required two race minimum are penalized two points, with a four point penalty for every subsequent engine change.
