It takes place at every race in Q3, the driver who goes fastest gets 10 points 2nd 9 points down to 10th that gets 1 point. As well as this 3 bonus points are available for the driver who sets the fastest lap come the race. Here are the drivers standings:

  14. Daniel Ricciardo            Toro Rosso            1                  (12th)

This is the first weekend where Lewis hasn’t taken pole position but he’s still managed to take the lead. Nico Rosberg will de delighted with his 10 points which have taken him from 8th to 5th and if he can keep this up he may be able to challenge the people at the top. Another driver who received 10 points this weekend was Kamui Kobayashi who not only qualified 4th picking up 7 points but also set the fastest lap to pick up another 3 points.


  1. McLaren                   55             (last weekend 1st)
  2. Mercedes                  40             (3rd)
  3. Lotus                         28             (4th)
  4. Red Bull                    27             (2nd)
  5. Sauber                      14              (9th)
  6. Ferrari                      4                (6th)
  7. Williams                  3               (5th)
  8. Force India             2               (6th)
  9. Toro Rosso             1               (8th)

A Mercedes 1-2 means they started to close the gap on McLaren but it may take a few laps to overhaul them because McLaren have had some time to build up a large lead.
