Formula 1 drivers with the most penalty points in 2020

Since 2014, the FIA and Formula 1 have introduced a penalty points system that penalizes drivers for their misconduct. Find out who accumulated the most penalty points in the 2020 season.

To news overview © FIA

The FIA penalty points system is something that the drivers in Formula 1 must take seriously. If any of the drivers hit a total of 12 points over the course of a one year period, they face a one-race ban.

Last year saw Sebastian Vettel accumulate the most number of points with the German ending the year with a total of seven penalty points to his name. The former Ferrari man improved his behaviour in 2020, completing the F1 season without a single point being added to his super-license.

The same however could not be said about Alex Albon with the Thai driver ending the year with Vettel's total from 2019, seven. He received said points for the following infringements, colliding with Kevin Magnussen at Silverstone, pushing Romain Grosjean wide at Monza, Sochi driving around a bollard incorrectly at Sochi, and colliding with Daniil Kvyat at the Eifel Grand Prix held at the Nurburgring.

Formula 1 Penalty Points

Driver Points given in 2020 Current total points
Lewis Hamilton 6 8
Kimi Raikkonen 2 4
Charles Leclerc 1 3
George Russell 3 3
Antonio Giovinazzi 3 3
Max Verstappen 0 2
Daniel Ricciardo 0 2
Sergio Perez 2 2
Esteban Ocon 1 1
Sebastian Vettel 0 0

Lewis Hamilton is next on the list with six, though he would have been ahead of Albon if not for a retraction of points from the FIA for his infringement at Sochi that saw gain points for performing his race starts in an unauthorised area.

George Russell tied Hamilton on six points and Lando Norris finished on five points to round out the top four.

What's interesting to note however is the fact that while only two Formula 1 drivers had clean slates in 2019, 2020 saw the number jump to eight with the likes of Valtteri Bottas, Max Verstappen, and Pierre Gasly all ending the year with zero points added to their super license.

All penalty points are scheduled for a reset in July this year.
