    Max Chilton 0.054 slower the Button

  2. Antonio Nartea (@tony031r) said on 12th May 2013, 17:50

    Three of the five top lap times are clocked by drivers who finished outside of the top 10… This goes to show just how much the top teams were abstaining from going to the limit in those cars / how those cars were set up with nothing but tyre-wear in mind. There’s no way the Saubers, in their current state, should be quicker over one race-pace lap than the whole top 10.

    I can get the whole “slower is faster” idea but this is taking it to a level where there’s no point in looking at lap times at all, to be honest…It’s just about who is willing to take the risk and push for a couple of laps at the expense of the tyres and when.

    I think it’s also important to note that even though the cars have found 1 second of pace from last year – going by qualifying times – the race took 16 seconds longer. Just goes to show how much tire conservation was going on really. Cars qualifying on front row not even in the top 10 for fastest race laps, shameful. I wonder if this has ever happened before?

    • AdrianMorse (@adrianmorse) said on 12th May 2013, 20:51

      It’s also interesting to note that the difference between the fastest laps of Rosberg and Hamilton in the race are almost 7 seconds slower than their qualifying times. That’s a huge gap, especially considering the fact that they’re not using as much DRS in qualifying this year.

  4. AdrianMorse (@adrianmorse) said on 12th May 2013, 21:13

    The tyres were very tricky today. Normally, when you look at the lap time chart, you see a dip after a pitstop, followed by a gradual rise of the lap times, and then a deeper dip after the next pit stop, and so on. In this race, many drivers had difficult stints where they could not go as quickly as expected (of course, this chart doesn’t show which compound was used or if the tyres were new, but still).

    One person who had an irregular stint was Vettel. His third stint, when Raikkonen was coming up behind him, was actually quite rubbish.

  5. Steve McGrath (@) said on 12th May 2013, 21:17

    Kimis graphs always amaze me how flat they are relative to everyone else. Stint 2 he manages to get the same laptime from a medium tyre on its 13th lap as he did from it first. Then he gets 21 laps out of the hard tyre

  6. AdrianMorse (@adrianmorse) said on 12th May 2013, 21:32

    I still have no clue what was going on with Hamilton during the race, or on the Mercedes pit wall for that matter. His second stint was the worst. Around lap 22-23 he ended up in the 1m32s, which was slow, but the cars around him were also doing similar times – and were starting to pit. Mercedes, still trying to go for a 3-sop presumably at that stage, kept him out, but he lost a lot of time in the next few laps: 1m33, 1m34.8, 1m38.3 (his in-lap, which was about 4 seconds slower than his in-lap on lap 10).

    Then in his third stint, his lap times were actually ok, but they called him in after 11 laps when his times weren’t going up yet. By that point they had decided to switch to a 4-stop, but still it would have made sense to keep going on the tyres when they were still giving some performance.

    His fourth stint was going ok, too, but suddenly from lap 47 to 48 he went from 1m29.6 to a 1m34.0. I was looking at the sector times that lap, it was not one mistake he made, all three sectors were very poor. I thought it might be a cool-down lap, but two laps later he pitted for the final time.

    A baffling, and very frustrating day for a Hamilton fan, and it is at days like these I wish I could view F1 without having a clear favourite driver, as a Sunday like this ruins my whole day, and I don’t expect to be in a chirpy mood tomorrow, either :-(

      and it is at days like these I wish I could view F1 without having a clear favourite driver, as a Sunday like this ruins my whole day

      Mate, I know EXACTLY what you mean! I’m a huge Button fan and it’s been very frustrating seeing McLaren struggle and not be in the hunt for the win. I would say that I’m not enjoying this season very much at all – even though there has been some great racing.

      I’m buggered if I know what I’m going to do when Button retires in the next few years! I guess I’ll have to find another driver to back, but at this point it’s hard to imagine!

      Good post mate!

      @AdrianMorse

      For some reason Hamilton’s car has been slower than Rosberg’s car by quite a margin. Hamilton is trying to be modest but Merc should know better.

      There are 3 possible explanations:
      1. Rosberg is way faster than Hamilton
      2. Hamilton’s car has a problem
      3. The Merc is an idiosyncratic car that somehow suits Nico’s style
      4. Hamilton is a bad driver

      #1 is extremely unilikely – if Rosberg was THAT good he would be winning gran prix throughout his F1 career, not when the car is the fastest. At absolute best, Rosberg is Hamilton’s equal.

      #2 that seems like a possibility because the car starts going faster all of a sudden.

      #3 I hope it’s not this one but Schumacher’s problems with adjusting to the Merc give this one a pretty high likelihood. It took Schumi 3 seasons to finally show that he was superior to Rosberg and the story was half-told since the points didn’t support him when he was DNF’ing non-stop when the Merc was competitive.

      Merc needs to get this sorted out.

      • Michael (@freelittlebirds) said on 13th May 2013, 14:43

        Oops I forgot to remove #4 as it is part of #1 – if Rosberg is faster than Hamilton it doesn’t matter who’s better or worse.

      • AdrianMorse (@adrianmorse) said on 13th May 2013, 15:22

        @freelittlebirds, as to Hamilton being slower than Rosberg, I think yesterday Hamilton struggled with the setup of his car. Whether he had a different setup to Rosberg I don’t know, but he just didn’t get the car working for him. This, as Ross Brawn said, made an already critical situation worse; by sliding more, he worked the tyres even harder.

        But I suspect Hamilton also let the anger and frustration of the whole thing get to him, in the sense that he didn’t drive his best race. He shouldn’t need to be told to take it easy in turn 3, he should have tried that himself. And I think Lewis could have defended a bit tougher, too (for instance by ensuring that Maldonado didn’t get by him).

        I suspect if Lewis and the team had been at the top of their game (for the team: pull him into the pits at the right time and don’t make any slow pit stops), he should still have finished somewhere around the McLarens, and the weekend wouldn’t have been a complete and utter disaster.

        • Michael (@freelittlebirds) said on 13th May 2013, 16:22

          But we’ve seen this irregularity with the Mercs and even Brawns for a while. In 2009 Button was the clear better driver at the start season then Barrichello crushed him in the 2nd half. Same with Rosberg, he beat Schumacher in 2010 and 2011 but 2012 Schumi was undoubtedly doing better than Rosberg save for the fact that the car could not finish a race in the 1st half of the season.

          You are right! Hamilton must be very frustrated because the car turns into a Marussia at times (yes, I’m exaggerating but only slightly) as the Marussias were faster at times yesterday.

          Something’s off with the performance of those cars as a whole but it seems to go further with a possible difference between the 2 cars themselves – they are not mirror cars like other cars tend to be.

    You know something is really wrong with the tyres when the fFastest lap up to 7secs slower than pole time. In the days of old, the fastest laps sometimes beat the pole time.

  8. Kingshark (@kingshark) said on 13th May 2013, 2:25

    Max Chilton was the fastest man on track on lap 32!

  9. Alexander (@alexanderfin) said on 13th May 2013, 7:57

    Kimis fastest lap is very impressive, 6th fastest lap with hard tires and on lap 47!

  10. Michael (@freelittlebirds) said on 13th May 2013, 14:54

    How on earth could a rookie in a Sauber have scored a fastest lap when Vettel in the indomitable Red Bull has only scored 17 fastest laps in over 100 races? That gives Gutierrez (1 out of 5) a higher ratio than Vettel who has been driving the Red Bull rocket the past 3 years.

    • Steve McGrath (@) said on 13th May 2013, 17:48

      I thought it weird also but anyones fastest lap these days is going to be on their first flyer after their last pit stop (least fuel combined with fresh tyres) and Guttierrez was last to stop. By then some of the guys with quicker cars had tyres 5 – 10 laps old. Though it doesn’t completely explain as the Sauber is at least a second off the pace. Guess others must have been in traffic / or “tyre saving mode” at that stage of the race

      • Michael (@freelittlebirds) said on 13th May 2013, 17:58

        @Steve_McGrath Enlightening post! Indeed Gutierrez was the last to pit and switched to the Hard. Looking at the charts above it looks like DiResta pitted a lap before also on the Hard but when I looked at the other article where they show the compounds it has DiResta doing 13 laps on the last set of tyres while Gutierrez did just 11. Either the chart above or the other compound table is incorrect.

        Since DiResta had the 7th fastest lap, I think he must have pitted 2 laps before Gutierrez did.

        • Steve McGrath (@) said on 13th May 2013, 18:42

          Yeah it looks odd because he pitted one lap before on the graph however looking at the results Gutierrez was a lap down at the finish so DiResta completed 2 laps more on his last set of hard tyres.
          The race chart in the other article shows DiResta coming out of the pits right behind Rosberg who only 3 stopped. Maybe DiResta could have posted quicker laptimes at that stage had he been in clear air

  11. Dan (@codek) said on 13th May 2013, 19:55

    What I find very interesting is that the red bulls and torro rossos have both identical times for each drivers, bizarre. is that some sort of mechanism they have to control their drivers which is more effective? Clearly with the duff tyres it can’t be reflective of the fastest time the car can handle, and certainly there’s no way webber and vettel are that well matched.
