Formula One is the high class of international auto racing for single-seater formula racing cars sanctioned by the Association International de Automobile (FIA) and also known as Formula 1 or F1. The World Drivers’ Championship, which became the FIA Formula One World Championship in 1981, has been one of the premier forms of racing around the world since its inaugural season in 1950. The word formula in the name refers to the set of rules to which all participants’ cars must conform. A Formula One season consists of a series of races, known as Grands Prix, which take place worldwide on both purpose-built circuits and closed public roads.

Formula One (F1) Points system


Formula One Flags

SC Board (Safety Car)Shown in conjunction with a yellow flag to indicate that the Safety Car is on track. Full course yellow flag applies. Drivers must hold positions and slow down.
VSC Board (Virtual Safety Car)Shown in conjunction with a yellow flag to indicate that the virtual safety car is in use. During this time, the drivers are given minimum sector times that they must stay above. Full course double yellow flag applies. The car’s time relative to this set time is measured at each marshaling post (approximately every 50 m), and the difference is referred to as the car’s “delta” time. This delta time is reported to the driver and must remain positive throughout the VSC period else the driver will be penalized.
GreenNormal racing conditions apply. This is usually shown following a yellow flag to indicate that the hazard has been passed. A green flag is shown at all stations for the lap following the end of a full-course yellow (or safety car). A green flag is also shown at the start of a session.
YellowIndicates a hazard on or near the track (waved yellows indicate a hazard on the track, frozen yellows indicate a hazard near the track). Double waved yellows inform drivers that they must slow down as marshals are working on or near to the track and drivers should be prepared to stop.
Yellow and red stripedSlippery track, due to oil, water, or loose debris. Can be seen ‘rocked’ from side to side (not waved) to indicate a small animal on track.
BlueA blue flag indicates that the driver in front must let faster cars behind them pass because they are being lapped. If the flag is missed 3 times, the driver could be penalized.
WhiteThis indicates that there is a slow car ahead. Often waved at the end of the pit lane when a car is about to leave the pits.
Black and orange circleThe car is damaged or has a mechanical problem, must return to the pit lane immediately. Will be accompanied by driver’s number
Half black half whiteWarns a driver for poor sportsmanship or dangerous behavior. Can be followed by a Black flag upon further infringement. Accompanied by the driver’s number.
BlackThe driver is disqualified. Will be accompanied by the driver’s number. This can be issued after a Half Black Half White flag.
RedA red flag immediately halts a race or session when conditions become too dangerous to continue.
Chequered flagEnd of the practice, qualifying, or racing session.
