This is a list of driver records in the FIA World Championships, since 1950. Drivers who have competed in the 2016 Formula One season are highlighted in bold.

This page is accurate as of the end of the 2016 Singapore 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).

daggerNot all De Cesaris's retirements were classified as 'DNF': he was classified as 3rd at the 1987 Belgian Grand Prix after running out of fuel and pushing his car over the line. For this reason, some sources list his 13 retirements and 1 DNQ in 1986 as the record for consecutive non-finishes in a season and 18 non-finishes starting the previous season.[68][73]

  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 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 c d 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 c d 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. ^ Shared drive with Stirling Moss
  8. ^ 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.
  9. ^ It was announced that the fastest lap of 1976 Japanese Grand Prix was set by Masahiro Hasemi on lap 25, but this was a measurement mistake, and, several days later, the circuit issued a press release to correct the fastest lap holder of the race to Jacques Laffite with a time of 1:19.97 on lap 70. This release was promptly known in Japan, and the Japan Automobile Federation (JAF) and Japanese media correct the record. But, this correction was not known well outside Japan, thus, Hasemi has been treated as the fastest lap record holder of the race in many record books including the Formula One official website
  10. ^ Farina's total of 20 podiums includes both 2nd and 3rd places at the 1955 Argentine Grand Prix
  11. ^ Farina's total of 20 podiums includes both 2nd and 3rd places at the 1955 Argentine Grand Prix
  12. ^ The change in the points system in 2010 had a significant effect on these values making before and after comparisons problematic.
  13. ^ González finished 18 races in the points and earned points for fastest lap in 1 additional race that he did not finish. He earned points in 19 different races.
  14. ^ Ascari finished 20 races in the points and earned points for fastest lap in 3 additional races that he did not finish. He earned points in 23 different races.
  15. ^ This includes part-seasons.
  16. ^ Alonso did not compete in Formula One in 2002 as he spent the season as Renault's test driver, so he won the championship in the fourth season he contested.
  17. ^ Rindt was killed in an accident while quailfying for the Italian Grand Prix on September 5, 1970, aged 28 years, 140 days. This is the age Rindt would have been on October 4, 1970 when he (posthumously) clinched the title.
  18. ^ 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.
  19. ^ Loof started one World Championship race at the 1953 German Grand Prix but only made it two meters off the starting grid. Marco Apicella is frequently referred to as having the shortest Formula One career, but that is false.
