How this will work is that if you compete in at least one race, yet not in all of them, you’re in*. The way I knew who was in and who wasn’t was… Wikipedia. If a driver has at least one plain white square (unsurprisingly, it means they didn’t enter), they’re eligible.
I am doing this using https://www.formula1points.com/alltime because it’s simple and I can’t be bothered to calculate it myself. I have also finished it already, so if I do stop uploading these mid-way through then feel free to call me out on it.
The 1950 “Part-Timers” Cup will begin either later today or tomorrow (This will not include the Indy 500 because it would break everything). I’ll add the constructors championship eventually, but doing that in the early years will be painful.
If you want, make predictions, and if you will make predictions, here are a few bonus questions:
- Which year(s) will have a driver win by default, and who will win them?
Which year(s) will have 2 drivers tie for the championship, and who will they be?
Which year(s) will have no eligible drivers?
Which driver(s) will win the most championships?
