  1. This is an interesting one.

  2. I love the laps per position.

  3. nice work !!

    is it possible to see the times per lap of each driver?

    1. These are in the post-race reviews published after each race:

      2011 Malaysian Grand Prix analysis

      1. thanks Keith, by the way, this is a great blog !!

        I used to check another blog that compared all the times per lap against the average lap of the winner (i can send the picture to you). this way the differences were a bit clearer. and you could compare them easier, who is in front, who is stopping the cars behind… just a suggestion.


  4. Hi Keith,

    I have seen very interesting lap by lap analysis. I think it will be good if you can do some special incident based analysis too.


  5. Love the laps in each position table :) loving your work Keith!

  6. is there anyway of getting a table of overtakes in each race? now that’d be interesting!

  7. SC led 10 laps in monaco and 30 in canada (according to the fia lap chart. i dont think it was that high)
    so the SC had led more laps than anyone except Vettel

  8. I’ve been collecting some data about finishing positions and retirements and working on the numbers, basically converting the points obtained by each driver into a single point-scoring system (well, actually, it’s three systems: the pre-2003, pre-2010 and the current one), and also calculating the retirement rate of each driver (throughout their careers, and not only this season). I have done this work with all drivers who raced in 2011 up till the Italian GP. This is how the retirement rate rank looks like:

    Pedro de la Rosa – 52,33%
    Bruno Senna – 45,00%
    Daniel Ricciardo – 40,00%
    Adrian Sutil – 33,33%
    Jarno Trulli – 32,52%
    Vitantonio Liuzzi – 32,00%
    Kamui Kobayashi – 29,41%
    Mark Webber – 29,41%
    Rubens Barrichello – 28,80%
    Sergio Pérez – 27,27%
    Jaime Alguersuari – 25,00%
    Nick Heidfeld – 24,59%
    Sébastien Buemi – 24,49%
    Narain Karthikeyan – 23,08%
    Pastor Maldonado – 23,08%
    Heikki Kovalainen – 22,89%
    Jenson Button – 22,77%
    Vitaly Petrov – 21,88%
    Timo Glock – 21,21%
    Sebastian Vettel – 20,00%
    Michael Schumacher – 19,29%
    Nico Rosberg – 18,63%
    Karun Chandhok – 18,18%
    Fernando Alonso – 17,54%
    Felipe Massa – 16,44%
    Jérôme D’Ambrosio – 15,38%
    Lewis Hamilton – 10,71%
    Paul di Resta – 7,69%

    Of course, we can expect these numbers to change quite abruptly for the rookies, but the data is quite meaningful for drivers with longer careers. Yes, reliabilty has improved, but you can still compare two drivers with similarly long careers, such as Adrian Sutil and Lewis Hamilton, Mark Webber and Felipe Massa and even Sergio Pérez and Paul di Resta.

  9. Has Vitaly Petrov really not changed position at the start of any race this season??

  10. So no-one other than Vettel still hasn’t lead 100 laps this year. The SC may still be in 2nd place then!
    Amazing that Vettel hasn’t been outside the points for 1 lap all year
