How the WRC's points shakeup has split opinion - and 2024's other new elements

The big news is a new – and very complicated – points system. Time to have a look at this and the other tweaks for the upcoming campaign

Arguably the biggest change heading into the 2024 season is the FIA’s decision to introduce an all-new points scoring system.

Points will be awarded under the scale of 18-15-13-10-8-6-4-3-2-1 to those in the top 10 at the end of Saturday, but only to those crews who reach the final classification of the rally at the end of Sunday. The Saturday points of any crew who fail to finish on Sunday will be awarded to the next best-placed pairing. Additional points will be awarded for a separate classification based purely on the Sunday stages to the top seven, on a 7-6-5-4-3-2-1 basis.
