Points System

Total Races Races Counted Towards WC Points AllocationNotes
8 5 Top 5 (8,6,4,3,2). Fastest Lap (1)The Constructors' World Championship was not yet established. Drivers who shared more than one car in a race only received points for their highest finish. Points for shared drivers were shared equally between the drivers, unless one driver was deemed to have completed "insufficient distance". Points were shared equally between drivers who set the same fastest lap time. For Juan Manuel Fangio, only his five best results were counted.
