3 stats that make F1 a truly data sport

Called the „motorsport queen” –  Formula 1 has always generated emotions among the fans. Racing cars rushing over 300 km/h, breakdowns, accidents, spectacular passing maneuvers – here we can find them all. In the avalanche of events it is sometimes difficult to notice certain details that make this sport not only an excellent form of entertainment, but also a data mine. Let’s look at the ones that are crucial.

QUALIFYING TIME

Formula 1 is the most technologically advanced sport. Not seconds but thousands parts of them play a decisive role. Teams work hard  to make sure that at the crucial moment of qualifiers their drivers could go the perfect lap and start the race from the pole position. The differences can be almost imperceptible – during the qualification for the 1997 European Grand Prix the top three drivers achieved the same time with an accuracy of one thousandth of a second. With the same accuracy, we give our times in LivematchPro.

AVERAGE SPEED

No matter how fast you are in qualifying – it all does not matter, if you cannot repeat it in the race. The car loaded with fuel is carried out completely differently, and the tire wear is also greater. Only the best drivers can properly take care of the condition of the car and go not only equally but also quickly. During this year’s Italian Grand Prix Kimi Raikkonen beat the lap with an average speed of 263,587 km.h! Fin can also boast twice getting at least 10 fastest laps in the single Formula 1 season.

NUMBER OF PITSTOPS

3

In addition to pure speed, tactics is key in Formula 1. It is carried out in a planned number of laps with one set of tires. Sometimes it happens that a larger number of pit stops is preferable because riding on a less worn set is more effective. Lewis Hamilton tried this strategy during 2018 United States Grand Prix, as he was the only driver in the lead with the tactics of two pit-stops. In the end, the Englishman was only third, but he lost less than 4 seconds to the winner!
