Note: David Coulthard celebrated his 200th grand prix in the Spanish GP - two weeks before Monaco. While the Spanish GP was indeed his 200th race, Monaco was where he made his 200th start. The discrepancy was caused by the fact that he didn't take the start in the 2006 US GP following several accidents for Michelin-shod drivers.

Like Coulthard, Alonso didn't take the start in the 2006 US Grand Prix. So while his 200th race start was at the 2013 Chinese GP, he celebrated his 200th grand prix a few weeks earlier in Malaysia.

Schumacher celebrated his 200th GP at the 2004 Spanish GP, although the the Monaco GP of that year marked his 200th race start. The discrepancy was caused by an engine failure on the formation lap of 1996 French GP, which forced a DNS.
