The Formula 1 penalty points system has been in place since 2014, with drivers awarded points on their FIA superlicence for a variety of transgressions.

Any driver who racks up 12 penalty points over the course of any 12 month period (not necesdsarily in one season), will earn an automatic race ban for the following race. To date, no driver has reached this 12 point mark.

McLaren's Lando Norris reached 10 points at the Austrian GP, due to being given two points on his licence for the contentious clash with Red Bull's Sergio Perez. However, the McLaren driver loses two of those points ahead of the next race weekend at Silverstone.

Below, we've listed the drivers with penalty points on their superlicence, and the date on which they lose some of those points! Just three drivers currently have spotless licences: Max Verstappen, Fernando Alonso and Mick Schumacher!

This list is accurate as of the date of publication, 9th July 2021.
