The Formula One World Constructors’ Championship or WCC award annually goes to the most successful Formula One constructor over a season. As it is, a points system based on Grand Prix results decides the winner. The points are calculated after each race, adding points after each highest-scoring driver for a certain constructor. 2019 Constructor winner predictions put Mercedes GP as a possible winner.
