The current Penalty Points system has been in place since the 2014 Formula 1 season and was introduced with the clear goal of making drivers pay close attention to their actions on the track to avoid disqualification for a race. It is well known that a driver who collects 12 penalty points within a 12-month period (not necessarily in a single Formula One season) will automatically receive a disqualification for the following Grand Prix. As of now, no driver has reached this negative milestone. Let’s see how the situation stands ahead of the Hungarian Grand Prix, which is scheduled to take place next weekend in Budapest.
