Stewards will investigate incidents and time penalties that have occurred/been awarded on track during official league races. Stewards will investigate incidents that have occurred as a result of contact between drivers, review time penalties awarded as a result of contact between drivers under Safety Car conditions, review time penalties awarded for corner cutting/track extending/speeding in the pit-lane/exceeding the lap delta under VSC/SC and penalties awarded for illegally overtaking another driver.
Derogatory posts which involve finger-pointing, or those intended to instigate an argument will be removed and will not be considered.
When reviewing incident(s) on track, stewards will take the following into consideration when deciding whether a penalty is deemed appropriate/necessary:
Stewards may impose any one of the penalties below on any driver involved in an incident. While a driver may receive the following penalties, they may also receive points on their licence which will count towards their accumulation and may result in further penalty awards.
Drivers who accumulate 30 seconds of time penalty awards from the stewards over 3 races on a rolling system, that driver will receive a one race ban. For example, if a driver receives time penalties from Rounds 1, 2 and 3; or 6, 7 and 8 totaling 30 seconds or more, they will receive a race ban. The driver must receive 30 seconds over any 3 race period.
Drivers who receive any of the above time penalties for the final race of the season, but DNF from the race will receive the following points deduction for both driver and constructor championships as an alternative to time penalty awards:
This section relates to reprimands and penalties that a driver has accumulated throughout the season. If a driver fails to complete the race that the incident occurred on, the penalty will be imposed on the driver on their next race event.
If a driver accumulates 3 penalties in the same race which results in a DSQ and one race ban, all other penalties are discounted; only the DSQ and one race ban is awarded. No penalty awards will be carried over to the next race event.
Drivers who accumulate penalty points on their licence will receive further sanctions such as:
If a driver accumulates 4 penalty points which triggers a race ban, all other penalties awarded are discounted; the affected driver will only receive a one race ban as a penalty. No penalty awards will be carried over to the next race event.
