Australian Grand Prix – Charts

March 18, 2014


One of the comments asked for the traces on a race history chart. So here it is, straight from the McLaren pit wall… Lap 51 of the coverage. Maybe I’m doing something right after all… My charts are below. I’m not going to make much commentary on these charts – but you can always ask… […]

Australian Grand Prix – Race Notes

March 16, 2014


Now this is fun. In comparison with 2013 there is much more going on in the races. There are a lot of interesting features in the race history chart traces which we didn’t see last year, pretty much all of which is playing with engine modes. The key thing we see is that there are […]

Australian Grand Prix – Friday Practice

March 14, 2014


And we’re back. The cars look (a bit) different and sound (a lot) different, but the Formula One circus is go. So much for all the cars breaking down, and no-one going out to practice. There’s a fair bit of data, and most of it looks to be reasonably consistent. The gap from front to […]

Australian Grand Prix: Underlying Pace

March 19, 2013


One of the more interesting things which can be done with the laptime data is that a performance chart of the race pace can be constructed using the curve fits from the intelligentF1 model. So who was fast, and who was not in Australia? Read on… I have put the drivers and cars in number […]

March 21, 2012


With the first race of the season done and dusted, many sites have posted their assessment of the relative performaces of the cars and drivers. So here is the data-centric intelligentF1 take on it: Sebastian Vettel (Red Bull-Renault): 2nd: Got into the mix with a good start and excellent pass of Rosberg. Lost out to […]

Australian Grand Prix: Story from the Data

March 19, 2012


As it turns out, after all the difficulties of understanding testing and practice, the Australian Grand Prix is pretty straightforward in terms of data analysis. There is good consistency of pace between stints for the pretty much all the cars, good consistency of the effect of using new or used tyres for a stint, and […]

Australian Grand Prix: Friday Anticlimax

March 16, 2012


So there you go. All the waiting, the anticipation, the chewing through the laptime data from testing, and along comes the first Friday of a Grand Prix weekend of the year. And it rains. Limited running, no sensible dry laptimes and essentially nothing to learn. As you may have guessed already, this will be a […]

Retro: 2011 Australian Grand Prix

March 15, 2012


It’s a little difficult to do a data preview of a race, and I guess the best thing to do is to give an idea of the race analysis which can be expected from this site. So where better to start than the 2011 Albert Park race, as it also gives a direct comparison (once […]
