List of Formula One records

The automobile federation FIA has been writing since 1950 a world championship for drivers from, since 1958 also for such designers. This World Cup were usually discharged with vehicles that meet the "Formula 1" mentioned rules. The following is a summary of some previously established records, statistics, etc.

When considering the data collected statistically in the following should be noted that the competitive conditions in the course have changed over the sixty-year history of Formula 1. So at least 17 World Championship races since 2004 regularly been held every year, in the 2012 season, there were even 20 Grand Prix races. Until the mid-sixties, however, only six to ten counting for the World Cup races were common, but the way many non- scoring World Cup Formula 1 races were held, the results of which remain unconsidered in the eternal statistics. It was only in the seventies the number of races increased to an average over 14.

Another factor that complicates the evaluation of achievements of previous drivers and teams based on statistical analyzes is the fact that in the past up to fifty drivers and more than twenty teams were registered to a single Grand Prix, of which, however, more than half of the race could qualify. Today occurs a constant number of competitors on the race.

In addition, the scoring system was modified several times: originally only got the top five in every Grand Prix awarded points, after several adjustments it since the 2010 season in the top ten. The winner then got as many points as today the sixth- place finisher of a race. A simple addition of won in World Cup race points is thus misleading and is not suitable for the comparison between the former and today's Formula 1 drivers.

In the official statistics of the race series also appear on drivers who have never contested a Formula 1 race, because in the years 1950 to 1960, the Indianapolis 500 for the World Cup was one, although there were no Formula 1 cars on the grid and rarely formula 1 pilot. For example, the American Bill Vukovich is listed with two Grand Prix wins, even if he never took part in regular Formula 1 race.

The reliability of the race cars has changed dramatically: While it was common that about half of the starting field remained standing during the course of a race with technical failure, fall today hardly out of cars. So could the seven-time world champion Michael Schumacher with 50 races in a row almost as many World Cup races without technical failure exit as the five-time world champion Juan Manuel Fangio throughout his career played a total of several makes.

The Constructors' Championship was introduced in 1958, which is why the team statistics are kept only from that year.
