This is a list of points scoring systems used to determine the outcome of the FIA World Drivers' Championships since 1950 and Constructors' Championships since 1958 (when the Constructors Cup was inaugurated). The Championships are awarded each year to the driver and constructor who accumulate the most championship points over the course of the Championship season.
The most dominant Drivers' Champion in terms of points scored is Jim Clark, who scored the maximum of 54 points (6 wins) in both 1963 and 1965. In recent times, Michael Schumacher finished on the podium in every race of the 2002 season to score 144 of a maximum 170 points. The most dominant Constructors' Champion in recent times was McLaren in 1988, scoring 199 of a maximum 240 points and finishing 134 points ahead of their nearest rival. In 2002, Ferrari scored 221 points, as many as all the other teams put together.
