Feature race grid

New for the 2006/07 season is the way to determine the feature race order. The grid is determined on three factors:

  1. The driver’s grid position for the Sprint race.
  2. The driver’s final position in the Sprint race.
  3. The fastest lap time in the Sprint race.

Points are awarded for each element. If a driver started the Sprint race on pole, he’d be awarded one point, if he started the race second he’d get two points, right down to the 23rd on the grid who’ll get 23 points.

The same occurs for the race positions – the winner gets one point, the runner-up two and third three points, right down to the last finisher who scores 23. Similarly for the fastest laps; the fastest gets one point, the second two and so on.

The points are all added together after the end of the sprint race; the driver with the lowest amount of points will start the Feature race on pole.

If two teams finish on the same amount of points after the calculations, the driver who achieved a higher finish position in the Sprint race will be awarded the better starting position.
