Putative Constructor Entry Specification:

No major Grand Prix events take place during the 1940 racing season. Nazi Germany invades Western Europe and the 'blitz' reaches the English Channel in May before occupying France in June. Nazis begin systemic bombing of British cities in June. Imperial Japan begins its militarist expansion into Southeast Asia in September. Great Britain successfully repels a Nazi invasion of its own territory by October. American Willys-Overland introduces the 'Jeep' to USA armed forces in November.

HeM applies the Putative Model to all racing seasons for two primary purposes: First, to effectively normalize all racing seasons for empirical comparison across the decades, and second, to step clear of series organizers which score season championships primarily out of commercial interest or to attract manufacturer participation. The Putative Model simply scores all seasons in the same fashion as a standard track and field meeting, with the only purpose of tracking what takes place at the finishing stripe If the Putative Champion differs from the nominal Series Champion, please note the (SC) notation below.
