Filling the many gaps in Formula 1 records, this book re-writes the racing history books. The history of F1 can be neatly divided into two eras, the first formally ending January 1980 when the terms `Grand Prix` and `World Championship` became synonymous, although there would be three more non-championship races after that date. However, up to January 1973 OVER HALF of F1 races were NOT included in the Championship results for the spurious reason that each country should have just a single F1 race.
The classification of many F1 races as non-Championship did a disservice to the achievements of drivers of the Fangio, Moss, Clark and Stewart era and, even more-so, to the four pre-Championship years which began in 1946. When, today, a commentator says Rosberg s 16th win equals the F1 wins of Stirling Moss this is manifestly untrue.
If the same drivers, in the same F1 cars, compete at the same tracks, and over a similar distance, then each race deserves to have its place in the records as a Championship quality event. This book includes such races alongside contemporary Championship races and, combined with known figures since 1980, produces what can surely be accepted as The Real Score of Formula 1.
