List of Formula One driver records

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to navigation Jump to search

This is a list of driver records in the FIA World Championships, since 1950. Drivers who have competed in the 2019 Formula One World Championship are highlighted in bold. Although the Indianapolis 500 was not run to Formula 1 rules and the 1952 and 1953 Grands Prix were run to Formula 2 rules, these races are included as they were qualifying races for the World Drivers' Championship. Formula 1 races that were not qualification rounds for the World Championship have been ignored.

This page is accurate as of the 2019 French 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 second 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 one complete lap before the race was stopped).
