What was the best Season in F1 History?

We dissect the data to rank each season from the very beginning to the present day

Formula 1 may be the greatest sport in the world but even the most ardent fan would agree that some seasons are better than others. So what was the best season in F1 history? What was the best era in the sport? It seems everyone has an opinion.

Fernando Alonso made his position clear when he described the generally popular Prost/Senna era of the 80s and 90s as “boring” and the noughties as being the greatest ever era. Is he right? How well do more recent seasons stack up?

Here at F1 Bytes we like to lean heavily on the hard data before making bold claims about who, what, where or when is the best in F1. So we’ve crunched the numbers.
