Each driver in the series has three favorite tracks decided by their team bosses as the start of their career. When a driver races at one of his favorite tracks an additional 0.1 will be added to each ability area.
At the end of each season drivers receive ability improvements on the condition they race in at least 4 races in the season and determined by he drivers age. Drivers can also receive ability improvements depending on their individual success. As follows;
24 and under: +0.2
28 and under: +0.1
32 and under: N/A
36 and under: -0.1
40 and under: -0.2
44 and under: -0.3
*added to each ability area.
Race winner: +0.1
Pole winner: +0.1
Rain winner: +0.1
*added to the appropriate ability area.
All new drivers must spread 66 points between Race, Qualifying, and Wet ability; the lower the number the better performance. These are not chosen by team managers. A driver can not start with an ability area below 19.9.
World Constructors Championship prize money
Teams receive end of season prize money based on their end of season finishing order. The prize money has changed for the end of Season Two. As follows;
Teams that are entering the series for their debut season will receive £13,000,000(the same amount as the 12th place finisher).
Depending on a drivers current Drivers Championship position their price will vary. As follows;
24th and below/test drivers £500,000
A manager can make a bid on a driver (except for those who are already in a contract for the following season) at any time. When a manager makes a bid; they must state which driver, the date, and their bidding price, as well as informing all the other managers in the series. The managers bid must match the drivers current championship sitting price (see above). For the bid to be successful it must stand uniterupted for 5 days in a row. Another manager can challenge the bid by bidding higher, therefor resetting the 5 day waiting period. If the individual driver moves ahead in the championship order the managers in the auction must match the drivers new price.
If a manager successfully wins an auction of one of their current drivers they will receive a 25% discount on the driver.
Research and Development
As of Season Two managers must research next seasons car or develop the current seasons car. Each development (also 0.1) will cost £500,000. Managers can not spend more than £3,000,000 a race. Managers can not spend more than £1,500,000 on one ability area a race. Managers must present this in their messages as of next season; example as follows;
R RA – 0.1 equal to £500,000
R QA – 0.3 equal to £1,500,000
R WA –
D RA –
D QA -0.1 0.1 equal to £500,000
D WA – 0.1 0.1 equal to £500,000
If a manager fails to explain and send their chosen developments before the individual race, it will be assumed they have chosen not to research or develop.
The developments teams make will be added to their chosen ability areas. At the beginning of very season Race, Qualifying, and Wet ability is reset to 20.0 before adding on developments.
At the end of each race teams received rac4 winnings depending on their highest drivers finishing position. Teams only receive the prize money from their highest drivers finishing position. As below;
1st – 4th £500,000
5th – 10th £400,000
11th – 14th £300,000
15th – 20th £200,000
21st – 24th £100,000
Team managers must send in their race strategies before the chosen deadline. Example as follows;
Stop 1 -lap 15
Stop 2 -lap 41
Stop 1 -lap 13
Stop 2 -lap 30
Stop 3 -lap 46
Team managers who fail to send in their strategies before the chosen deadline will have both drivers be put on 5 stop strategies with 3 of those stops being held back to back. The team will also face a £3,000,000 fine.
Mid season driver changes
Teams can have no more than 4 drivers race for them in a single season.
Drivers changing teams mid season
Drivers are allowed to change teams mid season with the appropriate managers deciding their own deals and prices. Team managers can hire drivers mid season such as former drivers. If a manager decides to put a former driver in their team mid way through the season, they must pay the price depending on where they finished in their last championship season.
