British F4: how it works


The 2021 season features ten championship rounds, each comprising three races. The grids are formed in qualifying at the start of each weekend by using the below format:

Race 1: drivers’ fastest qualifying lap
Race 2: full reversed grid based on drivers’ fastest qualifying lap 
Race 3: drivers’ second-fastest qualifying lap    

For Race 2, that means the fastest driver in qualifying will start at the back, and the slowest at the front. This initiative is in place to educate drivers in defensive and attacking driving techniques. 

There are fewer points on offer in Race 2 (15-12-10-8-6-4-2-1) than in Race 1 and Race 3 (25-18-15-12-10-8-6-4-2-1). 

Additionally, drivers are competing for the Motul Fastest Lap Award, which carries a bonus point for fastest lap in each race.
