The story behind this site.
Looking for an idea to start a new project, back in 2012, I stumbled upon the F1 alltime points list on pitpass.com. It stated (at that time) that the list was no longer maintained, because it wouldn't make sense to compare drivers over time with all these different points scoring systems going around. A search on the web did not lead to a source which actually maintains this kind of comparison. And a new quest was born :-) Matching my passion for F1 with my passion to create.

The result is this site. All possible combinations of all grandprix results and all points scoring system ever in use within Formula 1 in a fully dynamic view on every F1 driver, team & nation in F1 history.

Over the years it has grown from a points oriented statistics site to a full blown F1 statistics site, where many of the statistics that you can find are unique in the space of online F1 statistics. One of the other unique features is the F1 simulator which offers a breadth and precision hard to find elsewhere.

This site is not merely an informative source for 'f1-stats-junkies'. I also try to polish it and go all out in features, design and details, some of which might be less obvious to the passing visitor.

You can discover some interesting insights on the site, but the most prominent is perhaps the observation that all the changes in the points scoring systems over time, rarely would have changed the championship outcome. There are some notable exceptions like 2008, 1999, 1997, 1983 though one cannot not factor out that a championship would have run another course under a different points scoring system. In any case, enjoy and let me know what you think!

New features will be added over time, so do please come back from time-to-time!
