    You are really going deep with the statistics Keith. Love that beat team mate by for Maldonado being slower on average as Rubens failed to set a Q2 time.

    very interesting seeing hamiltons best qualifying in the first 2 races of the year, just another graph showing he hasnt made the most of the car he has this year. massa and alonso look the big improvers so far from early season qualifying form. petrov is going backwards and fast.

      What are you talking about??

      SO you think jenson has?!
      Its been clear as day that Hamilton is the one who has driven the socks off the car and pushed it further than its limits.

      Jenson on the other hand is the one who has underperformed in the car.

    these charts are great to look at! looking at the mclaren drivers, they have the same amount of points, but then seeing this chart makes them seem so much closer still, the same average qualifying position and the difference between their times is 0.016 seconds only! this is interesting because hamilton is the faster driver, but it shows that speed isnt enough in f1, you need strategy and need to avoid incidents.

    • SupaSix-1 said on 16th August 2011, 14:28

      Yes but even with bad pitwall strategies and the extra incidents Lewis has had…he still is 12 points infront of his team mate who always plays safe.

      Now..if Lewis did not have the incidents and punishments..he would be way futher infront of jenson and the difference would be quite embaressing.

    kovaleinen, liuzzi and glocks huge average gap to teammates in qualifying is testament to them getting the best they can out of the cars the have.
    Rookie Di Restas huge average gap to his teammate in qualifying makes him the best qualifyer on the grid for me, so far this season.

    • mantolwen (@mantolwen) said on 1st November 2011, 10:31

      Liuzzi and Glock have less-experienced teammates. Kovalainen, however, is going up against Jarno Trulli. Of course, Paul di Resta is a rookie going up against Sutil. I think both of them are pretty good, and di Resta can only get better!

    These stats just underline how terrible Mark has been in the RB7. It’s sort of sad…

    Keith,

    You have shown Hamilton as qualifying fifth in India. Surely this should say second? Yes, he had a three place grid penalty demoting him to fifth, but he qualified second.
