Keep on top of the fight for the title with the F1 Fanatic Championship Calculator

Still confused by the new points system? You’re not alone.

And with five drivers still in the running for the world championship there are many possible combinations for how the points might add up.

With that in mind F1 Fanatic has a new page where you can instantly see how each driver is doing in the championship. Give it a try now.

The F1 Fanatic Championship Calculator is a simple tool which shows you what each drivers’ championship score will be based on where they finish.

You can find it here: F1 Fanatic Championship Calculator

You can also find it under the ‘F1 information’ menu at the top of the page and of course we’ll have a handy link to it during the live blogs for the Korean Grand Prix weekend.

It’s quite basic at the moment so if you have any suggestions on how to improve it, or would like to make some changes to the code yourself, please post them in the comments.

    Why is when I press up on the controls does it show:

    -1.7976931348623157e+308

    Why have you put adrian newey’s face in the article?

    is there any interest on your side of having a “F1Fantaic Championship” next year. using your own points system etc……. i.e whatever system you think f1 SHOULD HAVE…….

      At the risk of making an awful pun it sounds a bit… pointless.

      • BasCB (@bascb) said on 15th October 2010, 11:10

        LOL Keith, that calculator is very much “to the point” thouh :-D

        Thanks for giving us this.

        Now i want Webber to have a DNF, Button to win it from Hamilton (with Kubica, Rosberg or Massa on the podium as well) and Alonso bringing it home in 5th with Vettel trailing him in 6th.
        That way they are sepearated by only 10 points, while Webber has 220 points with Alonso 4 behind and Button/Vettel equal 6 points behind. Lewis would have to make up 10 points to Mark, but i believe he is able to do that. Now that would be very tense.

    • You could use excel to play with that…..
      … … … nice pun… :D

        I too had a fiddle and discovered another Red Bull 1-2 in favour of Sebastian would reduce the points margin drastically! Thankyou for this Keith, it has certainly helped me realise just how close this championship really is.

  4. Pedro Andrade said on 15th October 2010, 9:17

    Priceless! Thanks Keith, that looks great, simple is the way to go :)

  5. KateDerby said on 15th October 2010, 9:18

    Great feature Keith, I just hoping by Abu Dhabi it’ll be all sorted, don’t think my nerves will survive otherwise!

  6. Bella Combs said on 15th October 2010, 9:19

    I very much like this!

  7. Next race I’d like it to be…..

    Webber, 11th or worse
    Alonso 6th
    Vettel 5th
    Hamilton 2nd
    Button 1st

    This should even it up nicely.. Oh and put Schumacher 3rd.

    Pity Mclaren will need a 1-2 for this…

    • Adam Smith said on 15th October 2010, 9:39

      I like you’re thinking. Dreamers keep dreaming though!

    • verstappen said on 15th October 2010, 10:02

      Yes, I guess we’re all trying to find those scores where everybody will stay as much in the running as possible…
      What a year!

    • BasCB (@bascb) said on 15th October 2010, 11:12

      Ha, I came up with exactly the same one! Only i thought about maybe having Massa in 3rd

      • damonsmedley said on 15th October 2010, 14:24

        As much as I want Webber to win the World Drivers Championship, I really want it to be decided in Abu Dhabi. So for me, the perfect result would indeed be; Button, Hamilton, Kubica, Rosberg, Alonso and Vettel, with Webber failing to score points. (Just this once)

        Considering I have supported Mark very enthusiastically all year long, I feel a little guilty hoping for this. But I have always loved it when things are close rather than when they are 2004-esque.

  8. jihelle (@jihelle) said on 15th October 2010, 9:22

    It will be great to have for the last three remaining GP rather than only for Korea. I must say the point system is quite difficult to keep track of as soon as there is more than one race involved.

  9. Santi said on 15th October 2010, 9:27

    Man, I hope we have a Webber DNF, McLaren 1-2 and Fernando,Vettel 3-4, in that way they are all 14 points apart!!

    • hehe, i was doing the exactly the same thing.

      • Todfod (@todfod) said on 15th October 2010, 12:58

        Obviously a very hypothetical situation, but imagine if –

        Korea Brazil Total

        Webber #8(3pts) #5(10pts) 234 pts

        Alonso #3(15pts) #4(12pts) 233 pts

        Vettel #4(12pts) #2(18pts) 236 pts

        Hamilton #1(25pts) #3(15pts) 232 pts

        Button #2(18pts) #1(25pts) 232 pts

        That would be awesome .. if all 5 championship contenders were to reach Abu Dhabi and race for the win.

        Its obviously hypothetical, since there is no way in hell that Jenson would manage a 1st and a 2nd within the next couple of races. But its interesting to know that if the Mclarens and Ferrari’s are capable of challenging the Red Bulls within the next couple of races, anything is possible.

        • Todfod (@todfod) said on 15th October 2010, 12:59

          Sorry my formatting went all over the place once i posted it.

        • Jelle van der Meer said on 15th October 2010, 14:43

          Talking hypothetical if:
          Mark finishes 9th, 8th and 5th
          Alonso finishes 4th, 4th and 7th
          Sebastian finishes 3rd, 3rd and outside top 10
          Lewis finishes 2nd, 1st and 10th
          Jenson finishes 1st, 2nd and 8th

          Not only will all 5 still be within 10 points heading to Abu Dhabi, the final championship result will show 5 drivers at 236 points within Lewis winning as he has the most 2nd place finishes (each has 4 wins).

  10. Nothing against the bloke but it would be good to see Webber get a DNF in Korea!! Liven things up again.

  11. KateDerby said on 15th October 2010, 9:42

    To those who want a bad race for Webber I hope you’re prepared for the consequences which will inevitably be a 3rd title for Alonso.
    Just sayin’! ha!

    • Over my dead body.

      Dont right off Seb! Oh i just forgot, hes gonna also DNF in Korea when he makes contact with Webber hehe.

    • “I hope you’re prepared for the consequences which will inevitably be a 3rd title for Alonso”

      Yeah, I’d be happy with that :P Good luck to Mark though. Who knew we’d have a year where things seemed to mostly go right for him…

  12. i’m not going to wish a DNf for any driver anymore. The last time i did, My driver, lewis, was the one having the DNF.

  13. Icthyes (@icthyes) said on 15th October 2010, 9:56

    Thanks Keith! Stupid points system.

  14. John H said on 15th October 2010, 9:56

    1. Jenson
    2. Hamilton
    3. Alonso
    4. Vettel

    and a DNF for Webber leaves:

    1. Alonso: 221
    2. Webber: 220
    3. Vettel: 218
    4. Button: 214
    5. Hamilton: 210

  15. zecks said on 15th October 2010, 10:12

    keith, thanks but it would be cooler if it could allow the the entry of the final 3 races to see who might be champion.

    for example if next two races finish vettel-webber 1-2 then vettel will be championship leader on 256 coming into the final race. Assuming vettel does a schumacher (on hill) and alonso scores a 4th, 4th and 1st at abu dhabi, vettel will be champion with webber and alonso all on 256 points.
