Driver[edit]

For every race points were awarded: 9 points to the winner, 6 for runner-up, 4 for third place, 3 for fourth place, 2 for fifth place and 1 for sixth place. No additional points were awarded. All scores from basic events counts: Race No. 2, 3, 4, 7, 9, 11, 13, 16 and 17. Also the first four starts (not scores) in the complementary races counts: Race No. 1, 5, 6, 8, 10, 12, 14 and 15. But only the first result in any country of the complementary races counts. Three drivers had a point deduction, which are given in ().
