Hello! Is there a stat about the average starting position of the race winner over the years?? It would be interesting to see whether its become easier or difficult over the years to win a race given a particular starting position….
Would love to see the 2002 stat, for the fun of it. Hahaha!
Great work, @mnmracer! Interesting that for all the wonders of DRS, this year’s average is actually worse than 2006 – a season clearly dominated by Ferrari and Renault. 2012 is also worse than 2003, despite the comparisons those two seasons got for the number of winners they had.
I don’t think DRS really does that much for battles at the front, as -despite our romanitsized memories- they are not usually thought that close, and when they are, it is not usually between drivers that need DRS.
Now the mid- and backfield…
2011 actually had the most overtakes since 1991.
