I really miss the 15-car grid we had when I started updating this in 2012... It's pretty sad when there aren't enough cars to fill the points-scoring positions.


Norris retired early in Las Vegas, giving the others a chance to shine. Ocon took his fourth win of the season with Stroll finishing second (continuing his recent more impressive performances) and Piastri third (also setting the fastest lap).

2023 (After twenty-one races):

Norris 408 (10 wins, 4 2nd, 1 3rd)

Gasly 309 (2 wins, 5 2nd, 2 3rd)
Stroll 299 (4 wins, 4 2nd, 3 3rd)
Piastri 282 (1 win, 4 2nd, 6 3rd)
Ocon 263 (4 wins, 3 2nd, 3 3rd)

Zhou 181 (1 3rd)
Magnussen 141 (2 3rd)
Sargeant 113 (1 3rd)
De Vries 56 (best result: 5th)
Lawson 50 (1 2nd)

Piastri 50 (2 wins)
Magnussen 27 (1 3rd)

Great drive from Bearman to take second, and especially generous from Ferrari to randomly make a car designed for this one specific race in mind!

In Australia, Piastri continues his amazing season with a home win. Stroll finishes second and Tsunoda an impressive third, but it's already looking like Oscar might be unbeatable, helped by an additional fastest lap point. As Sargeant was withdrawn from the race, only seven drivers started, and all of them finished the race too.

2024 (After three races):

Piastri 76 (3 wins)
Magnussen 39 (1 3rd)
Stroll 36 (2 2nd)
Tsunoda 33 (1 3rd)
Zhou 29 (1 3rd)
Ocon 26 (best result: 4th)
Bearman 19 (1 2nd)
Gasly 16 (best result: 5th)
Sargeant 15 (best result: 5th)

In Japan, Piastri takes his fourth win in four races and also sets the fastest lap. Tsunoda finishes second at home and Stroll third. There might not be much of a fight for the title at the moment, but second, third and fourth are currently level on points!

2024 (After four races):

Piastri 102 (4 wins)
Stroll 51 (2 2nd, 1 3rd)
Tsunoda 51 (1 2nd, 1 3rd)

Unsurprisingly, Piastri wins the Chinese sprint race. Home hero Zhou takes second place ahead of Magnussen.

Piastri also wins the Grand Prix, with the Alpine duo of Ocon and Gasly taking their first podiums of the season. Zhou sets the fastest lap.

2024 (After five races):

Piastri 135 (5 wins)
Stroll 66 (2 2nd, 1 3rd)
Magnussen 65 (1 3rd)
Ocon 57 (1 2nd)
Tsunoda 53 (1 2nd, 1 3rd)

Predictably, Piastri wins the Miami sprint ahead of Tsunoda and Gasly. The biggest surprise is home hero Sargeant's fourth place.

However, Oscar's win streak comes to an end in the Grand Prix itself, as he only finishes fourth after a crash (but sets the fastest lap along the way, and actually manages to increase his lead by two points over the weekend). This gives Yuki Tsunoda the opportunity to take his first win, having already been on the podium ten times before (including two second places). Ocon and Gasly finish second and third, respectively.

2024 (After six races):

Piastri 156 (5 wins)
Tsunoda 85 (1 win, 1 2nd, 1 3rd)
Ocon 78 (2 2nd)
Stroll 74 (2 2nd, 1 3rd)
Magnussen 73 (1 3rd)
Gasly 64 (2 3rd)
Zhou 63 (1 3rd)
Sargeant 33 (best result: 5th)
Bearman 19 (1 2nd)
