12 circuits and 13 drivers

December 27, 2009

There are 12 circuits that hosted Formula One grand prix races in every one of the last three seasons. And there are 13 drivers who drove in all 36 races at those circuits.

The best overall was Kimi Räikkönen – he scored 180 points, which is 5 points per race. Second was Lewis Hamilton, who scored 172, with average of 4,8. Third was Fernando Alonso with 142 points, 3,9 per race. Last, 13th, was Adrian Sutil, who only scored 5 in Monza in 2009. The best result was achieved by Lewis Hamilton, who scored 24 points in Hungaroring with two wins and a 5th place. Had Kimi Räikkönen not retired in the closing stages of the Belgian GP in 2008, he would win the race and score 30 points in three races at Spa.

Although Lewis Hamilton scored the most points in three seasons in all circuits, Kimi Räikkönen was the best in those 12. The reason is probably the fact that Kimi wasn’t very successful in new circuits like Valencia, Singapore and Abu Dhabi, and the fact that Kimi is very fast in the classic circuits like Spa, Monaco, Monza and Silverstone, which take place every year.

All 12 circuits (Melbourne, Sepang, Sakhir, Barcelona, Monaco, Silverstone, Hungaroring, Istanbul, Monza, Spa, Shanghai and Interlagos) will be on 2010 race schedule. But not all the drivers will race, as Kimi Räikkönen will be driving in WRC and Giancarlo Fisichella will probably only be a test driver. All the others are confirmed, except for Nick Heidfeld, who is very likely to get a seat at Sauber team.

    Great Blog you’ve got here Steph, good to see F1 Fanatics on doing so well on the blogosphere. I might even consider starting one.

    Nice stats on the last 3 years, good to see how high Heidfeld is on this list, more proof people shouldn’t misunderestimate him.
