New pole position trophy up for grabs in 2014 12 Dec 2013

Qualifying will take on an even greater importance in 2014 thanks to the introduction of a new trophy that will be awarded to the driver who scores the most pole positions during the season.

In the event of a tie, the trophy will be awarded to the driver who holds the greatest number of second places. If there is still a tie, the greatest number of third places will be taken into account and so on until a winner emerges.

If such a trophy had been in place in 2013, Red Bull’s Sebastian Vettel would have been the clear victor having taken nine pole positions to Lewis Hamilton’s five.

The pole position trophy is one of several additions to the latest version of F1’s 2014 sporting regulations. Also included was a new article that gives race stewards the power to impose penalty points on a driver’s super licence. If a driver accrues 12 penalty points his licence will be suspended for one race, after which the points will be removed from his licence. Penalty points will remain on a driver’s super licence for a period of 12 months after which they will be removed.
