A tennis-like ranking also for motosport?

Fia would be studying a system with a ranking similar to those of tennis and golf.

The drivers of Formula 1, Endurance, Rally and Formula E would be compared on the basis of their results to then elect the best of the year. “We are thinking less about the launch of additional competitions, but more about a system that harmonizes Motorsport and eSport – commented the director of the Formula E and innovative sports activities for the FIA, Frederic Bertrand – and what we would like is to launch a format in which all competitors would be included in a global ranking system managed by us, so that at the end of each year there is an absolute number one of the world. 

With the further objective of ensuring that this initiative encompasses the widest possible range of motorsport disciplines”. Talking about ranking, tennis was among the forerunners. 

There has always been a ranking of the best players in the world, but up to the seventies it was a ranking drawn up according to the opinions of some experts, since 23rd August 1973 the calculation of points was entrusted to the computer. The first number 1 was the Romanian Ilie Nastase, while today it is the Serbian Novak Djokovic who holds this role. 

Some of the best players in the ATP ranking will be the protagonists of Tennis  on the Racetrack Imola 2023, the event that will bring tennis champions to a racetrack for the first time, thanks to the idea by CC LAB Consultant Ltd, in synergy with CC LAB Italia and Autodromo Internazionale Enzo e Dino Ferrari di Imola.
