With a new year comes a chance to look over what’s working, what’s not, and where my time is best invested.
The latter is particularly important on a race weekend when time is short. So this year there will be a few changes to the regular race weekend content:
The Friday practice analysis will be combined into a single article and the ‘qualifying analysis’ and ‘pre-race analysis’ articles will also be merged.
The post-race analysis will be split into a series of different posts. These will appear as articles rather than being built on separate pages elsewhere on the site – an unsuccessful experiment I tried late last year.
Previously we had individual race reviews for every team. This year we won’t be covering every team in that detail at every race weekend, but instead focusing on the most interesting cases that come up in each race. The same data will still be available through the statistics pages.
This will also allow the Driver of the Weekend polls to be published sooner after the race.
The ‘programme’ and ‘complete review’ articles will be scrapped and the content that was in them moved into other articles such as the race preview.
Most of the regular features will continue as before: we’ll still have Rate the Race after each Grand Prix, Facts and Stats on Monday and the Predictions Championship results on Tuesday.
There will be other minor tweaks and changes. If you have any thoughts, questions or suggestions, please post them below.
