2015 Old School Standings

 


As you may be aware, for the last few seasons I've kept track of what the Drivers and Constructors standings would look had Formula 1 still been using some previous points systems. Well, for 2015, it's back and better than ever!. These SIX tables will be updated after each race, so make sure you keep checking back to find out what things would look like under different formats. Anyway, enough rambling for now, here's some tables and numbers. Yay!
