Bonus point to be awarded for fastest lap in F1

By Opta
A bonus point will be awarded for the fastest lap in F1 from this season

Melbourne, March 12: A bonus point will be awarded for the fastest lap when the new Formula One season gets under way this season.

It was announced on Monday (March 11) that an additional point will be up for grabs in both the drivers' and constructors' championship for the quickest car, on the condition that the driver finishes in the top 10.

The F1 Commission approved the proposal, which has been ratified by the World Motor Sport Council.

It will come into effect at the Australian Grand Prix in Melbourne this weekend, where Lewis Hamilton will start the defence of his title.

Hamilton's Mercedes team-mate Valtteri Bottas won the Fastest Lap Award last season after clocking the quickest lap on seven occasions.
