  • + -- Driver retired, but was classified as they completed 90% of the winner's race distance.

Notes:

  • In the ninth round of the championship in Catalunya Ekström originally crossed the line 5th and Green 8th. However, due to an overly harsh duel between the two on the last lap the stewards penalized both men. Ekström was disqualified and Green was given a 30 seconds' time penalty. As Ekström already had caught the attention of the stewards in a negative way during the race, his penalty was bigger.
