Drivers statistics

i About facts-figure section.

Among the drivers who participated in the Formula 1 races, some managed to achieve low or high performances appearing in different statistics, and some only participated in qualifications or races, failing to establish themselves for the following statistics: first row start, pole position, fastest lap, podium, win or get a point.

Percentage of drivers, achieving stats

If we are looking for drivers who have at least once obtained a podium, front row start, fastest lap or finished in the points, we will find a percentage of 41.5. It is interesting that a third of them obtained all the mentioned statistics at least once, the rest at least one of the statistics.

Without notable performances

  1. Above chart display data for drivers who did not had front row start, podium or fastest lap
  2. No performance1 - rule1
  3. No performance2 - rule1 + scored point(s)

More than half of the drivers did not manage to get even half a point. We are referring to half a point, as Lella Lombardi is the only female driver who finished in a points position, collecting the fewest F1 points (0.5) among the drivers, at the last race contested at Montjuic Park in 1975.

If we delete from the statistics the pilots who have obtained points, we will be left with a percentage of over 72% who did not have notable performances.

In order to appear in the Formula 1 driver statistics, besides participation, it seems that the easiest is to get a point, and the most difficult to get pole position, not to mention the great desire of everyone to become world champions, which a small percentage reached of pilots.
