This views shows the results of a specific Formula 1 grand prix.
  • (not classified) means that the driver did not complete at least 90% of the laps of the race winner and therefore is not eligible for points.
  • Selecting one of the other points scoring systems allows to view the result based on that points scoring system.
  • Laps indicate amount of completed laps.
  • The qualifying results are defined as the start grid. The reason behind this is that pole-position is defined by the grid and not the qualifying result (so this included possible potential).
