Putative Constructor Entry Specification:

No official Grand Prix events take place during the 1946 racing season. The AIACR reorganizes as the Federation Internationale d'Automobile (FIA) and proposes a new formula for Grand Prix racing at Turin, Italy in early September. With the Allies' defeat of Nazi Germany in 1945, global motorsport awakens from its second deep slumber, yet bitter recriminations linger among the battered European nations towards the remnant of Nazi Germany and its wartime atrocities. As a result, the German automobile manufacturers delicately avoid resurrecting its prewar racing ambitions during the early years of peace.

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.
