The Formula Virtual World Drivers' Championship (WDC) is awarded to the most successful Formula Virtual racing car driver over a season, as determined by a points system based on V-Prix results.

The Drivers' Championship was first awarded in 2013, to Nathaniel Powers, who was driving for Franklin. Powers had a contract to switch to Downton for the following season however, and moved as soon as he won the title, which happened with one race to spare in the season. It has subsequently been awarded to Enrique Ruiz and Elroy Wagner, both of whom were also driving for Franklin in their championship-winning years, while Adrien Simon became the first non-Franklin driver to win it in 2016.

A driver becomes the World Champion as soon as it is mathematically impossible for another driver to obtain more points than he or she has.

Notes

1 Powers competed in the 2013 season with Franklin, but signed an early contract with Downton for the following season. A contractual clause allowed for him to make the move as soon as the Drivers' Championship had been won.
