Rating the Teams of the 1999-2009 Era: The Tail Enders

Part Three of the series.

In this edition the teams who haven’t quite made it to the top of the grid are rated and their histories discussed in detail. Once more, the teams are rated over the period 1999 up to an including 2009 post Turkish GP.

Once again, the system used to rate the teams is this:

The best results and worst results of each team have been dropped and the average taken from the remainder of finishing positions over the years. This system rewards consistency. It also ‘protects’ a team from receiving a poor rating due to a once-off season like McLaren’s disqualification in 2007 Therefore the better a team has done over time, the higher their rank will be.

In the event that two teams are tied on ratings score, the result from the current season will be used to determine rank.

Note that teams no longer competing are not eligible for a top ten result despite their average rating. Also note that teams that have changes names are not consider new teams, rather these are a continuation of the previous team.

See Part One to see who made it into the Top Four and Part Two for those teams making up the Mid-Field.
Part Four coming soon!
