As of next season, when a driver receives three penalties for on-track driving discipline offences – from merely a verbal warning upwards – they will also be automatically relegated six grid places on the third penalty.

This relegation will take place at the first available race that it can be taken. It will then continue to be applied to each driver on every third penalty thereafter, in addition to any other penalties given.
