Here’s Who Scored The Most Penalty Points In F1 This Year

It’s certainly been a busy year for penalty points. For those of you who aren’t aware, penalty points are handed out by the FIA if you’ve been in their bad books. You can pick up points for causing a collision, ignoring yellow flags, or not correctly lining your car up on the grid among other things.

If you total up 12 of these points on your licence, you’ll face a one-race ban. It’s serious stuff, but fortunately, nobody has ever reached that milestone, although some have come close 😬

Points also expire off your licence once 12 months have passed, so all of the points acquired below will come off a driver’s licence once a year is up.

Here’s how many points each driver has picked up across the 2021 season:

Yuki Tsunoda – 8
Max Verstappen – 7
Sergio Perez – 7
Sebastian Vettel – 6
Nikita Mazepin – 6
Nicholas Latifi – 6
Valtteri Bottas – 5
Lando Norris – 5
Lance Stroll – 5
Antonio Giovinazzi – 3
Pierre Gasly – 3
Lewis Hamilton – 2
Fernando Alonso – 2
Kimi Raikkonen – 2
Esteban Ocon – 1
George Russell – 1
Daniel Ricciardo – 0
Charles Leclerc – 0
Carlos Sainz – 0
Mick Schumacher – 0

Now, if you’re a bit of an F1 nerd like us, you can view WHY these penalty points were handed out in our handy article, plus when they expire!

  • Max Max Max, super Max Max, super super Max!!! Oh wash me with your salty tears you sore losers.

    Whatever the FIA says, it’s never the right thing according to any fan, unless it favours your driver of course. But it is the one thing that happens, so live with it. All by all it has been a fun year, right? One way or another. Let’s just hope next year will be a least this exciting again?

    • Mark Richardson says:

      Sure. And if they’d changed the rules of racing on the last lap of a race Max was clearly winning in order to hand a title to Lewis instead, you’d be all “ah well, at least it was fair” 🤣🤣🤣🤣 maybe next year, Max can win his first legit title. I think he’s good enough that he could.

  • So everyone says mick schumacher is better in his second year, its kinda his pattern. If he blows up and does amazing in 2022, ferrari will have to choose between sainz (whos consistency is arguably better than leclercs, and helped secured 3rd for ferrari after their worst year in the sport, in a similar car to 2020) or the son of a man who many “passionates” deem the possible GOAT of the sport, and the definite GOAT at ferrari. If sainz beats leclerc in 2022, and mick blows up; does ferarri buy the monagasque driver out of his contract or run out the deal with Carlos, and sign mick?

    • This has been on my mind and i only bring it up because all three have accrued ZERO points this season. I mean is it possible ferrari has too much talent?

  • And there are also grid penalties. Has anyone worked out who won the grid penalties championship? And finally time penalties where 5 or 10 secs is added to a time. F.1 is awash with penalties…….

  • Just here to enjoy watching those dumbfuck salty british delusional fucks cry out in frustration over max hahahaha. Literally the whole world favors max over their precious lulu.

    • Not all Britons. Few Delusional London people like him more and they are the one who are talkative. If you watch them profile pictures, most of them LuLu’s Defender were old people.
