List of Formula One drivers

This is a complete list of drivers who have entered a FIA World Championship race since 1950.

In total, 799 different drivers have entered at least one World Championship race, but 65 have never started a race, usually because they failed to qualify for the race. See also the list of Formula One drivers who never qualified for a race. The driver who has entered the most World Championship races is Rubens Barrichello, with 268.

Up until 1990, not all points scored by a driver contributed to their final World Championship tally ("see list of pointscoring systems for more information") – in the tables below, a number not in parentheses indicates points which counted towards the World Championship; a number in parentheses indicates total points scored.

Current drivers (those who are listed on the official FIA entry list for the 2008 season) are shown in bold. World Drivers' Champions are highlighted in blue. Drivers who have entered a Grand Prix solely for the purpose of Friday testing (introduced in 2003) are not included.

This page is accurate up to and including the 2008 Singapore Grand Prix (September 28, 2008).
