I'll do it that way then. 2007

I'm pretty sure Alonso is the only regular not to score.
Super Aguri 87
Toro Rosso 40
Red Bull 31
McLaren 18 (if you let their score count!!)
Canada: nobody (that's the race I referred to above with lots of safety cars)
France: Ralf Schumacher
Great Britain: Kovalainen
Turkey: Ralf Schumacher
Japan: Button (if he hadn't stopped on the last lap it would have been Yamamoto - go home Jenson!!!)
Brazil: Hamilton (and in doing so McLaren overtook Ferrari to avoid the wooden spoon!)
Well at least this shows that the lousy Earth Dreams Honda RA 107 was actually good for something.
If I had chosen option A for Canada then the "winner" would have been Trulli, and the extra 10 points gained by Toyota would have enabled them to beat Honda on most wins. A Japanese constructors 1-2-3 is something to behold though!
Also a very good year for the veterans - 5 of the top 6 (would have been top 5 if Trulli had won Canada) were the "old-timers" who were all dissed in the F1 Rejects year review (I think Coulthard was spared though)! Wurz picked a good time to retire though - he won in China but thanks to Rubens' 4th place, Wurz no longer had a mathematical chance of the title, so moved on bowing out with a win! Once Fisichella retired early in Brazil, Rubens was safe even though he later retired.
