Additional drivers and driver changes

In each of Friday's two practice sessions, teams may run one additional driver, though each team is still limited to two cars. Any holder of a Super License may run as an additional driver.

Teams may use up to four race drivers during a season, all of whom may score points in the championship. A driver change may be made with the permission of the stewards any time before the start of qualifying. The new driver must use the engine and tyres allocated to the original driver.
