The Raymond Sommer Trophy is awarded at the end of each Formula One season to the driver with the most non-finishes during the season (does not include classified DNF's, DNS's, DNQ'S, disqualifications and exclusions). It does, however, include drivers who retired from the same race twice after sharing a drive. It is named after Raymond Sommer who was joint winner of the first award with Juan Manuel Fangio, who retired from the Italian GP twice.
