    This might get to be one of the favourites I think.

    Ya this is going to reveal alot about team strategies this year.. Really like it!

    Did Vettel not pit before Hamilton on the medium/softs? They’re the same above..

    I could be wrong..

    Also, interesting to see Vettels view on the DRS in this lighthearted type interview.. http://www.formula1.com/news/interviews/2011/4/11886.html
    I tend to agree with him..

    Good job on the stats page. Looking forward to this as the season progresses. :)

    I don’t know how you’ll incorporate this in the pit stops table Keith, but don’t you think we need to put which lap the drivers retired, and how many laps there are in each race to put things in the right perspective? It doesn’t make sense that Rosberg and Kovalainen made 1 pit stop (and Maldonaldo with none), when in fact they didn’t finish the race. This gives Sauber and Perez the proper recognition as they finished with only one.

    As for tyres, are we getting a cumulative score for every race, or will this table change per race?

  4. Sam said on 7th April 2011, 17:13

    an interesting statistic that shouldn’t be too hard to calculate would be total number of laps completed divided by total number of pit stops to work out the average tyre life for each driver over the year. (altho a pit stop doesn’t always mean a tyre change)

    Aw I’ve only just found this page. I love it! I’m a big stats fan haha. The variation in pitstop strategies is awesome!

    Keith you have again completely out done yourself. Fantastic information that many fans like myself will want to have…….thanks.

    I went to my first GP last weekend and was amazing at the sheer volume of tyres brought in for GP2/GP3/F1. There must be a massive warehouse or truck convoy somewhere to house/transport all the different tyre compounds?
