There’s Jackie Stewart and Jacky Ickx who raced together between 1967-1973.
Vettel was the best driver of the season even before Hungary. Hamilton’s mediocre performances in Spain and Austria were largely masked by his car.

Both Max and Carlos have 4 DNF’s to their name. In fact, Max didn’t finish 5 races, but in China he completed enough of the race distance in order to be classified.
As paragraph four makes clear, the data is […]

I am sorry, but with reference to the head-to-head data from last year, you cannot convincingly assign all of Vettel’s issues to reliability issues. In the races where both cars finished, Ricciardo was ahead 78% […]

For me Bottas’ head-to-head with Massa is just not impressive enough to suggest he could consistently rival Vettel in a Ferrari. That is not to say he does not have the potential, but equally, he is only in his […]

@davef1 Red Bull is indeed famous for promoting drivers with potential even if they are not the quickest yet. I do not think it was the case in Hungary though. Verstappen was faster than Sainz, who was holding the […]

I hope that Renault are going to buy Lotus and get along without PDVSA’s money as Maldonado’s collisions and penalties stopped being funny a long time ago. This might be a good opportunity for Hulkenberg.

Great graphs and stats @keithcollantine . Really puts the inter team battles into perspective.
Interesting to see how close it is between Massa & Bottas ,and Ricciardo & Kvyat this season. Also puts in to […]
What’s your point? Vettel was desperate for a Ferrari drive?
He made a difficult decision of leaving a team he won WDCs with for a long term punt with Ferrari. That’s hardly a desperate attempt to abandon ship
During the past 5 to 6 seasons, Red Bull has been a class above the Ferrari. Even as poor as they are right now, and as good as Ferrari is this season, they are just slightly behind the Ferrari.
I don’t think a […]
Well.. Let’s wait for this season to be complete before we can get an accurate assesment of Kvyat vs Ricciardo. To be honest, I’m not surprised by how close it is between them. During pre season, I had tipped […]
How can they not rate Ricciardo highly? He beat their #1 driver in his 1st season as teammates together. He took 3 wins as compared to Vettel’s 0 , outqualified and outraced him despite being a newbie in the team.
I’m suprised that Ferrari didn’t even speak to Ricciardo for that 2nd seat. I can’t help but think that either Vettel has a veto in his contract for the 2nd seat, or Ferrari are just looking for a solid #2 driver […]
