FIM clarifies points for three-rider teams

FIM clarifies points for three-rider teams.
On the eve of the season-opening Qatar Grand Prix, the FIM has explained how Teams' World Championship points will be awarded for the three-rider Repsol Honda squad.

Teams' points are usually awarded by adding together the points scored by each rider, but that format was designed with a maximum of two-riders per team in mind.

The rule change is as follows:

“For teams with more than one rider, in each race, points scored by the best placed rider and the worst placed rider in the team, including substitutes and replacements, will count towards the Team Championship.
(In the case of a Team entered in an event with more than two riders, but starting the race with one/two riders, only the best placed rider will score points counting towards the Team Championship.)”

In other words, points scored by the second-best Repsol rider in each race will not count.
