    It is interesting Drivers Race Performance Ratings on the Formula 1 site
    I made table on base of this diagram

    A kind of rating, with such subjective indicators as cornering and aggressiveness,
    which is not clear how to take into account the struggle on the track.
    According to this rating, it turns out that the best overall assessment will be given to the driver,
    who calmly and accurately will go the whole race, without being distracted by unnecessary
    with this approach overtaking

    "FIA race director Charlie Whiting says something must be done rather than the current system of the first driver out on track in FP1 getting the jump on any rival with a similar penalty.

    He’s in favour of a set-up that forces the drivers to run in qualifying."

    To screw up an old saying about horses: You can force the cars to go on the track but you can't get them to race,
  6. olegg very interesting table, could you please exaplain how you get to those numbers? are your numbers derived from the data from each car?

    Thanks olegg Looked over the site. Only seven events, only four are in Russia (two in Finland and one in Holland). The grid size varies between 12-15. It is something but it is hardly the crucible that is going to generate a steady flow of good racers. Sort of seems set up for the well-to-do only. With no significant set of in-country series, I fear that with the exception of an ocaasional driver like Kvyat, it is mostly going to generate paying drivers.

    Yes, data for each drivers.
    it is necessary to select any in the list of drivers and double-click on it to see the full list of its ratings for all indicators.
    In the same way it is possible to compare estimates on two pilots.
    To go to the estimates of another pilot, you must first cancel your previous selection
    by double-click on the previously selected pilot, and then select another driver

    but isn't 26 of them overtakes, red bull coming through the field but like Andyoak says F2 has proven its the cars that cant follow not circuits that are the problem because the feeder series are usually more entertaining. but hopefully getting rid of the 4 winglets leaving just 2 levels. fingers crossed should help

    The idea of the grid penalty for engines and gearboxes was to force teams to cut costs and supposedly reduce the advantage of the bigger teams who would run more engines

    I think Sochi saw the worst wear too many drivers had grid penalties and therefore have no incentive to qualify and do a run and the only way to determine your grid position was the first car to get out the pits... a really stupid rule the latter on and dangerous if cars race in the pitlane

    Maybe if there was less harsh with the gearbox and engine penalty say 1 per gearbox and parts change and 3 for engine penalty that would at least encourage running
