F1 drivers' penalty points: Who is close to a ban?

Just one driver was sanctioned with penalty points at the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix as the curtain fell on the F1 season.

Drivers avoided any end-of-season antics at the Yas Marina Circuit with only one brief yellow flag interruption across the 58 laps.

This was caused by a collision between Mick Schumacher and Nicholas Latifi.

For tagging the rear of the Canadian's Williams, Schumacher was handed a five-second penalty and had two points added to his licence - a sanction that will have no effect given he will not feature on the grid next year.

George Russell was also handed a five-second penalty for an unsafe release and Mercedes was fined €500 after Lewis Hamilton was caught speeding in the pits between reconnaissance laps to the grid.

Alongside time penalties, driving infringements also carry penalty points to ensure driving standards are maintained.

These points expire after 12 months have elapsed, but will result in a race ban should 12 points be accrued during this period.

GPFans has compiled a list of the points currently accrued by drivers and when they will expire. This article will be updated throughout the year.
