    More stuff.

    The drivers page now has additional overtaking data: http://cliptheapex.com/overtaking/drivers

    As do the individual driver pages: http://cliptheapex.com/overtaking/drivers/daniel-ricciardo.872/

    There is one caveat however - the individual driver page values for the career overtakers per gp, and overtaken per gp, are only correct for those drivers for which we have full data available.
    Which is essentially from 2004 to present day.

    It's not really worth adding loads of code to check for those GPs and seasons for which we have no data to adjust the career averages so, meh.

    Latest build rolled out.

    The individual driver page counts for overtakes per GP and overtaken per GP now take into account the seasons and GPs for which we don't have individual overtake data.

    You can see that on these pages:
    http://cliptheapex.com/overtaking/drivers/fernando-alonso.786/
    http://cliptheapex.com/overtaking/drivers/rené-arnoux.563/
    http://cliptheapex.com/overtaking/drivers/michael-schumacher.723/

    So for any season which is denoted as 'Unknown', the GPs in that season are deducted from the driver's total GP count when calculating the per GP values.

    Just two things left on the to do list...

    ...which is proving to be a tad tricky.

    Very nice! Looks like it'll be fun when we have stand-ins though!

    Thank all that is holy that you have no individual data for 1994.

    It's done programmatically so it shouldn't matter.

    The code grabs all of the drivers in the gp and loops each driver in turn counting the total overtakes on each of the other drivers.
