Jerez test 1 statistics

Posted on Author Keith Collantine

These are the fastest combined times from the Jerez test for each driver. I have some data on the sequences of laps done by each driver today which I will upload once I’ve processed it.

Also below is the data on the total amount of distance covered by each driver, team and engine in the tests. Ferrari have now amassed 100 laps more testing than any other team.

  1. Lewis Hamilton (McLaren-Mercedes) MP4-25 79.583
    Jaime Alguersuari (Toro Rosso-Ferrari) STR5 79.919
    Kamui Kobayashi BMW (Sauber-Ferrari) C29 79.95
    Sebastien Buemi Toro (Rosso-Ferrari) STR5 80.026

    I guess you can say Ferrari is capable of beating those lap times and I think that they are planning to blow the competition away in Bahrain.

    This is not a coincidence.

  2. 3,402 kms of testing done by Ferrari
    2,575 kms of testing done by Mclaren
    2,530 kms of testing done by Mercedes
    1,320 kms of testing done by Red Bull

    Ferrari has done nearly 900kms more of testing than the other BIG three teams. I dont think it makes sense reading into lap times, but Ferrari seemed to have built an incredibly reliable machine.

        1. It would make no sense at all for Ferrari not to run at 18,000 max revs. Why would they run higher? They wouldnt get any gain from it. I’m sure Ferrari have sorted out last year’s gremlins and have a beast this year

      1. it is a valid point to question how many engines have every team used (not only ferrari). Another thing is suggesting they castrated their engine to make it last, and the word for it is nonsense.

        Why would any team gather useless data by going slower than they will during the season?

        In that scenario all data regarding fuel comsumption, tyre wear, performance, downforce are worthless. Next year better stay dry at home and eat pasta no?

      1. No he didn’t, he drove on the first day of the first test in Valencia. The second table you refer to is titled: “Distance covered at all tests in 2010.”

      2. It’s good to be able to compare the different drivers/cars and engines this way, even though we can’t draw too many conclusions from this other than an overall exceptional level of reliability. I’m really chuffed Virgin did so well this afternoon, I thought they’d be miles off the pace today.

      1. So it does. My mistake.

        Interesting though that he is the only non race driver to test this winter… I suppose all the young drivers had their chance to shine in the Young Drivers Test last year

  3. Grand job Keith.

    As ever, we have no idea on comparitive fuel loads between drivers, but ‘assuming’ both drivers have done some light and some heavy fuel load work, the Ferrari boys seem well matched. Michael and Nico arn’t miles apart either, but is Lewis a whole second faster, or is that just a consequnence of Buttons lost late run on Thursday?

    Early days for the Red Bull boys, having missed Valencia, but nice to see the rookie Hulk keeping the superbly experienced Rubens honest.

    Hope you had a great time in Jerez sir, first of many insider views I suspect. Guessing you enjoying your new job, you earned it!

    1. I predict there will be 5… Stefan GP are planning to use Toyota engines, and I expect to see them replace one of either USF1 or Campos on the grid before long

  4. De la Rosa has tested 317 laps

    74+80×4051=623,854 at Valencia
    58+105×4428=721,764 at Jerez

    Total: 317 laps / 1.345,618 km

    I think you’re having other track lengths for Valencia and Jerez, perhaps 4.005 and 4.423. Also Webber did 150 laps, according to the Red Bull website he did 50 the 1st day and 100 on the 2nd.

    1. VR are struggling cos they never tested one major factor: the effect of real WIND on a real front wing. It took just 17 laps to arrive to a conclusion – Facepalm.

  5. keith

    Is it possible to get stats on the long runs (ie greater than 20 laps) for Ferrari, McLaren, Mercedes and Red Bull. I am thinking of average, median ,fastest and slowest for each driver with length of stint. just to get somr idea on how the top teams compare within the long runs (of course we would still have the fuel complication but above would be a reasonable start).

  6. I’m loving this forum. Nobody seems to have noticed Jenson is too big for the McLaren. Other wewbsites are all talking about how Mclaren are using oil coooler air to enhance their rear wing or perhaps make dirty air and have put a blanking plate in the air intake and F1 fanatic is congratulating all the teams for a great test. Wake up.
