This page is accurate up to the 2014 Hungarian Grand Prix.

Races entered and started[edit]

Drivers are considered to be "entered" into a race if they attempt to compete in at least one official practice session with the intent of entering the race. These drivers are noted on the "entry list" for that race. A driver is considered to have started a race if they line-up on the grid (or at the pitlane exit) for the start of a race. If a race is stopped and restarted, participation in any portion of the race is counted, but only if that portion was in any way counted towards the final classification (e.g., most races stopped before the end of the leader's 2nd lap had the first part declared null and void in the 1990s and early 2000s, but the first part did count if it was run for more than 1 complete lap before the race was stopped).

  1. ^ a b c d e f g h i j k l m n o p q r s t u v w x y z aa ab ac The Indianapolis 500 was a round of the World Drivers Championship from 1950 to 1960. Drivers competing in the Indianapolis 500 during these years were credited with participation in a World Championship race and the top five finishers were credited with World Championship points.
  2. ^ a b Fangio entered 52 separate races, but shared 6 cars with other drivers in 5 Grand Prix which would reduce his percentage win ratio to 41.38.
  3. ^ a b Ascari entered 33 separate races, but shared 3 cars with other drivers in 3 Grand Prix which would reduce his percentage win ratio to 37.14.
  4. ^ Some sources extend Ascari's sequence to 9 wins, including the subsequent 1953 Dutch and Belgian Grands Prix and discounting the intervening 1953 Indianapolis 500, on the basis that very few of the European drivers competed in the Indianapolis 500 when it was part of the Drivers' Championship.
  5. ^ Juan Manuel Fangio began racing in pre-World Championship Grands Prix in 1948.
  6. ^ Giuseppe Farina had been competing in pre-World Championship Grands Prix since the 1930s.
  7. ^ Bruce McLaren participated in the German GP and Moroccan GP in the 1958, as a Formula 2 driver.
  8. ^ Shared drive with Stirling Moss
  9. ^ A year after the victory Renault were charged with race fixing which led to the team's suspended disqualification, however, the original results were left in place.
  10. ^ Farina's total of 20 podiums includes both 2nd and 3rd places at the 1955 Argentine Grand Prix
  11. ^ The change in the points system in 2010 had a significant effect on these values making before and after comparisons problematic.
  12. ^ This includes part-seasons.
  13. ^ Alonso did not compete in Formula One in 2002, so he won the championship in the fourth season he contested.
  14. ^ This is the age Rindt would have been on the day he (posthumously) clinched the title (October 4, 1970). Rindt died one month earlier on September 5, 1970 aged 28 years, 140 days.
  15. ^ Denny Hulme won the 1967 championship without ever having scored a pole, although 6 years later, in 1973, Hulme did finally rack up the solitary pole of his 112-race career.
  16. ^ Apicella joined Jordan for Monza, qualifying 23rd, but was knocked out of the race at the first corner and never started a Grand Prix again.
