    Hi, This is a list of pointscoring systems used to determine the outcome of the FIA World Drivers' and Constructors' Championships since 1950. The Championships are awarded to the driver and constructor who accumulate the most championship points over the course of the Championship season. In some seasons, only a certain number of a driver's best results were counted towards the World Championship. This was most significant in 1988, when McLaren drivers Alain Prost and Ayrton Senna were dominant. Prost finished 14 races in either first or second, retiring from the other two, while Senna won 8 races to Prost's 7, meaning that he only needed 3 further 2nd places to secure the championship irrespective of Prost's other results. This resulted in the anomaly that Prost took a record number of points, yet was not champion. A new system counting the points from all races was introduced in 1991, together with an additional point awarded to the winner. The current system was introduced for the 2010 season, and was designed to allow more teams and drivers to score points regularly, whilst the reduced gap in points between the positions means that reliability and consistency are usually more important than the final position. 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.
