Pole position trophy to be introduced
12 December 2013 – The FIA will hand out a trophy to the driver who records the most pole positions during the 2014 season.
The move was clarified in the latest set of Sporting Regulations as Formula 1 gears up for its largest technical overhaul in recent years, spearheaded by the introduction of turbocharged 1.6-litre V6 engines.
In the event of a tie, the trophy will be handed to the driver with the most number of second places. And should this fail to produce a winner, "the FIA will nominate the winner according to such criteria as it thinks fit."
Quadruple World Champion Sebastian Vettel would have won four of the past five pole position awards if it had been on offer, with only Lewis Hamilton upsetting the German's impressive run during the 2012 campaign.
