About tiebreaking rules
decoration
The following tiebreaking rules have been used when determining championship positions. Please note that these rules may not have been the same throughout the championship history and this may lead to some errors.

Rules

In case of a tied score, break is determined by following rules:

1) Quality of the achieved finishes. One first place is better than any number of second places, one second place is better than any number of third places and so on. Note that this comparison extends beyond points scoring places.

2) Number of finishes of each quality. Two first places are better than one first place and any number of second places, two second places are better than one second place and any number of third places and so on.

3) Chronological order of finishes (in quality series). Finishing first in first rally of the season is better than finishing first in second rally of the season.
