Podium is the name of the platform that is used for the prizegiving ceremony following the race. Prizes are awarded for First, Second, Third and Winning Construction.

The National Anthem of the winner’s home country is played before trophies are handed out and champagne is then sprayed in celebration.

Podium is often referred to in statistics with the number of wins or the number of podium appearances being a metric that is often used by F1 pundits.
