This is to prevent drivers love Max Verstappen who totally bypassed GP2 thanks to his podium championship finish in Euro F3.

The GP3 winner’s point bonus has been reduced from thirty to twenty-five, while Formula V8 three.five’s point total has been slice from thirty-five to twenty for a championship. Points are presently only rewarded down to ninth space at a reduced rate.

The WEC LMP1 allocation has been altered to reduce the points offered for first and second place – forty-to-thirty and thirty-to-twenty-four respectively – but the drivers finishing from fourth to tenth in that category will presently get an increased points reward.
