  2. ^ a b c d e f Renault held a French licence from 1977 to 2010, and a British one in 2011

  4. ^ Since 1982, all race timings have been done to the nearest 0.001 seconds, but previously many races, including the 1971 Italian Grand Prix, were not. As a result it is impossible to know whether the finish was closer than that of the 2002 United States Grand Prix
