Not sure I am even remotely bothered about 2012 onwards, with all due respect.  Isn't this a "nostalgia" forum in any case?

 

I can, however, remember my disappointment (bewilderment) that Jochen Rindt wasn't even included in the 1970 top ten.  Who made that decision?

MCS, there's a note at the end of the Top Ten of 1982:

 

"It has been the custom for Autocourse to exclude drivers who, for one reason or another, have not completed a full season... this, of course, ruled out Gilles Villeneuve and Didier Pironi."

 

It goes on to argue that while Pironi would have topped the list at the beginning of August, "it is feasible that he could have made mistakes [in the last few races] which inevitably would have detracted from his record thus far."

 

So that was the rationale, although one could argue that as a blanket rule, it was a rather blunt instrument. We can at least be grateful that the argument, for the most part, is in the past tense.

Thanks Peter.  Makes sense I suppose.

You’re right of course. Perhaps I am the only person interested in a fully updated list. I will ask elsewhere.

Got my Autocourse 2018.

I've read the Top 10.

I'm gonna read it another time this evening to verify if what I believe to have read yesterday is correct after all.
Because I can't believe the ranking I've read yesterday yet.....
