We have a poll after each race to give it a score out of ten, so why not collect them together and find out what Clip the Apex's race of the year will be?! And who will win the wooden spoon? On the Fridays of Grand Prix weekends I will look at the results of the poll from the race before and calculate mean scores etc. Any votes after I look at the poll to calculate these won't count, apart from possibly in a future tiebreak situation, should it be needed. In this order of priority, I am going to calculate the following stats for each race: Average (mean) score excluding the top and bottom 10% of scores. This means that if 50 people vote I exclude the votes of the 5 people who gave the race the worst score and the 5 people who gave the race the best score, for example. This is to try and remove a bit of bias due to driver/team favourites. The real average (mean) score. The middle (median) score. The most common (mode) score. The number of people that voted. So, if two races tie on the average mean excluding the top/bottom 10% (to one decimal place), then the real mean will be used as a tiebreaker, then the mode and so on right down to the number of people that voted (more people wins). In the unlikely event that it's still a tie after all this I will either create another poll to decide the winner/loser or go back to the poll results to see if more people have voted since I calculated the stats. The results from the three races so far are as follows, with the colours representing highest to lowest scores from green to red: (table removed due to calculation errors, see below) So, Malaysia is the current leader with a score of 7.7 out of 10 probably largely thanks to the emergence of Vettel's evil twin brother . Let the battle commence! I will post the results both here and in the poll for each race. EDIT: On reflection I have swapped the median and mode in the priority list. EDIT2: On request I have added the Standard Deviation. This gives an indication of the spread in people's scores, so for example a race where a lot of people give the race 1/10 and a lot of people give the race 10/10 would have a large standard deviation. I will not use this as part of calculating the best race of the year, but it can be used for the "most controversial" or "most disputed" race of the year. So in addition to best race of the year, we will have: Worst race of the year - Calculated using the same procedure as the best race of the year. Most disputed race of the year - Calculated using the standard deviation. If there is a draw I will either use the difference between the mean and the mean excluding the top/bottom 10%. the difference between the highest and lowest score, or create a poll.
