FIA announces new point system ahead of 2024 WRC season

FIA announced yesterday night that the drivers, the co-drivers and the teams will have to adapt to a new point system in World Rally Championship starting from Rallye Monte Carlo next year.

More specifically, the points 18-15-13-10-8-6-4-3-2-1 will be awarded to the first top ten crews based on the overall classification of Saturday, but only in the case that they will get to the finish line of a WRC round meaning that have to survive on Sunday. If a crew does not manage to complete the final day of a rally, the Saturday points will be awarded to the following crew on the classification. The maximum Sunday points are at least seven with the best top seven crews taking the 7-6-5-4-3-2-1 while the Powerstage points remain the same with the fastest driver and co-driver taking the five bonus points from PS. The most important purpose behind this decision is for the crews not to cruise during the final day of a rally and to offer more intense fights until the end. Last but not least, the maximum points of a rally remain 30 if the winning crew finishes in the first place overall on Saturday and Sunday and sets the fastest time in Powerstage.
