I thought I remembered the epic 2008 F1 season pretty well. I thought so, until I looked at the result of today’s F1scope data distillation, and noticed that Felipe Massa lost the title at the Hungarian GP when he suffered engine failure in the lead.
What do you see looking at the F1scope’s driver chart ?
News about Robert Kubica coming back to F1 appear regularly on the front pages of numerous F1 websites. It inspired me to develop new type of distillation focused on a single driver and not a single Gran Prix.
Please take a look, tell me what you think about it, and let me know, who would you like to see distilled next.
4 drivers were setting fastest laps yesterday: Verstappen 16 times, Vettel 6 and Bottas and Hamilton 2 times. The Fastest Lap of the race was finally set by Vettel on 68th lap.
Last year, 2016 Mexican Formula 1 Grand Prix, provided us with 187 laps of top ten drivers 1s or less from eachother.
Looking at the whole 2016, Mexican Grand Prix was 6th on list with: Monaco – 270, Austria 240, Brazil 225, China 213 and Australia 199 top 10 DRS laps.
How is it going to be on Sunday ?
All 2016 Formula 1 Grand Prix races are now available on F1scope. Enjoy !
What was your favourite race of 2016 season ? Let me guess Brazil ?
Last year United States Formula 1 Grand Prix was not only about great strategy calls and Lewis Hamilton in full control, but also about surprises.
Verstappen was pretty clear about his ambitions on the radio, just to surprise his team in the pitlane and then to be surprised by his car giving up on him a lap later.
Ricciardo couldn’t understand why he was not stopped during the Virtual Safety Car period, and Raikkonen experienced very unusual pitstop, when he left with the wheel gun still attached to his car.
It all came back to me today, when I was distilling 2016 US F1 GP and looking forward to the 2017 edition of this race tomorrow.
BTW what do you think about new versions of F1Scope race visualisation charts ?
All 2017 races are now available as F1Scope distillates in a new vertical format. Looking forward to your feedback.
After some time of silence I’ve just published a visualisation of today’s Japanese Grand Prix in the new layout. I see it as a beta release, and planning to publish the whole season in this format soon.
The distillation of Spanish Grand Prix finished just in time for the Monaco. The analysis is on line, and a few things has been improved, I’m looking forward to your feedback as always.
F1Scope Race Summary is a visualisation of Formula 1 Grand Prix. It consists of a few elements, which provide the complete overview of the top 10 action for the whole race, lap by lap.
The first part shows the grid, tyre strategy, and the situation on the finish. The distance on the finish line is proportional to the gap in seconds (every line is 5 seconds)
Just below, you can find general race statistics. Not only leaders and fastest laps, but also the percentage of gaps below 1 second, gaps between 1 and 10 seconds and bigger than 10 seconds. This, as well as position changes and pitstops is calculated only for top 10.
The next part of the summary visualises all laps for top 10. The left part of the chart is reserved for the statistics similar to the above.
The next element to the right is a lap chart, which visualises a few things at the same time:
- green ribbon = pace; the thinner the ribbon the faster pace
- orange squares, grey dots = gap indicator;
- orange squares: gap < 1 second; every filled square represents 0.1s
- grey dots: gap < 10 seconds; every dot represents 1s
- no indicator: gap > 10 seconds
- events (pitstops, fastest laps, DNFs)
On the right side of the lap chart you can also find
- best time and worst time
- and the gap chart
(The above two elements are for the current 10 laps)
All of this combined provides a lot of information on one overview.
Please find example, created for the recent Australian Formula 1 Grand Prix, here. I’m looking forward to your feedback.
