Just prior to the first race of the year the F.I.A. rubber-stamped Liberty Media's suggestion that a single world championship point be awarded to the driver with the fastest race lap. The extra point will only be awarded if the driver who sets the race's fastest lap also finishes in the top 10. Effectively 21 points on offer over the season.
Since RnR's inception in 1994 10 points have been rewarded for the fastest lap regardless of the circumstances. We will continue to do so.
