Notes:
In calculating the average poles / GP ranking, only constructors are included with a minimum of 10 GP entries. Click the total-view on top, for all constructors. Only three digits of the average pole positions / GP are shown.
Explanation
In the pole positions view, an overview of the pole-positions achieved by F1 drivers and constructors is provided.
It contains the average poles / GP and total GPs. Where for the average view for drivers only those drivers with more than 5 GPs are listed. For constructors a minimum of 10 GPs is required. In the total view all poles are shown.

A pole position is defined as the first position on the starting grid. Note: this is similar to but not the same as the first position after the qualifying. As penalties can still be applied after qualifying.
The total GPs are defined as the race starts by the driver.
