Explanation
In the driver season view, drivers are compared for the selected season based on the selected points scoring system.
  • The season standings and progression is provided in the graph and table for both points and position. And the constructors are shown as well. In the graph you can (de)select specific drivers by clicking on the names.
  • The season team battles show the race results comparison between teammates. Note that if drivers switch during season this is taken into account. If certain results are omitted this is noted in the remarks below the graph.
  • Next the overview of wins and fastest lap is provided for the selected season (including the team for which the driver achieved the results).
  • The calender provides an overview of all grand prix in the season. The grandprix page can be reached by clicking the name of the GP.
  • Please note that in some cases, the overview does not always exactly match championship outcomes. This is due to additional rules for certain seasons as to how many results can be attributed to the championship.
