Welcome to Sports Annual's  Constructors Championship

Here at Sports Annual we measure wins and points per start to find out who are the best at winning races and scoring points. We're not measuring glamour or wealth or fan base we just want to know who won the most races and scored the most points ... pound for pound. P28 is Franz Tost's Alpha Tauri/Toro Rosso. In P27 it's the 70s American outfit Shadow. In P26 it's BMW F1. In P25 it's the March team and in P24 the colourful Jordan team followed by ..  

P 23 - Hesketh

1 win from 52 starts.

More famous for parties than racing it nevertheless gave World Champions Alan Jones and James Hunt their debuts. Most famous among non F1 fans for their appearance in Ron Howard's warmly received movie Rush about the battle between Lauda and Hunt. It was pretty good actually.

Lewis Hamilton by Mercedes F1 

NO QUARTER GIVEN

Lewis Hamilton took his 99th win from 276 starts despite a heavy collision with Max Verstappen on the opening lap of the British Grand Prix on Sunday. Here at Sports Annual the win keeps Lewis in P2 ahead of Alberto Ascari. The lead over the Italian great from the 50s remains tight at a little over a tenth (0.123). It was Lewis's eighth British Grand Prix win ... a winning table he leads from Jim Clark who won it 5 times. On his first lap collision with Verstappen Hamilton said "I just don't feel like he needs to be as aggressive as he is." Asked by Sky F1 if the crash took the shine off the win he said "Honestly no it doesn't. This is racing."

Max Verstappen's DNF saw his Sports Annual battle with Niki Lauda take a 51G hit at the British Grand Prix on Sunday. Lauda's lead over Max grew considerably at Silverstone. The crash also let Hakkinen back into the fight which is now statistically wheel to wheel. Lauda's growing lead over Max looks like this. Niki won a race from every 6.8 starts while Max wins a race from every 8.6 starts. It's big. Had Max won the British GP he would have dropped to 8 starts per win ... a big gain off the back of his comparatively short career. He has started only 129 races vs Lauda's 171 and Hakkinen's 161. That low start count is handy but at the end of the day Lauda won 25 of those 171 starts ... a tough nut to crack if Verstappen is going to join the leading pack and stay there.

MERCEDES STILL 1 - 2 AT THE TOP OF THE DRIVERS TABLE ... HOLDING OFF FERRARI

Sharknose Ferrari driver and American world champion Phil Hill took P41 from Raikkonen at Silverstone on Sunday. Kimi's last finish in the top six was at Brazil in 2019 where he came fourth. He has not won since Austin in 2018 ... his first win for five seasons. Phil Hill won the 1961 championship ... the year his team mate Wolfgang von Tripps crashed into the crowd at Monza while leading the championship. He lost control of his Ferrari 156 after clipping wheels with Jim Clark's Lotus. He slid off the track into the crowd and was thrown from the car and killed along with 15 spectators. Phil Hill died aged 81 in 2008 from complications related to Parkinsons Disease.

Christian Horner confirms Verstappen's crash measured 51G. He said Lewis Hamilton "should not be making maneuvers like that ... it's unacceptable. I hope he's happy with himself." Max Verstappen's amazing charge through the grid this year stalled at Silverstone but his four wins this year took him from P31 to P16 so the setback may only be temporary.
