This is completely unscientific as it doesn’t take into account the type of circuit, whether a team has any problems during qualifying, etc.

I have also taken the fastest time from all 3 sessions, to factor out any poor flying laps in Q2 and Q3 for example.

Of course this does have the effect of making the slow teams look even slower, but it’s safe to assume that the top teams are holding back in Q1 as most of them use the hard tyres which is worth a second or so, and probably a little in Q2 too.

What it does do is compare the fastest time for each team at each race and then displays the gap to the overall fastest time and also the % difference. There are also a few tables and charts with the gap and % difference per km.

This will at least allow us to see any trends and which teams are improving (relatively), or getting worse.

**This table details the qualifying times as a percentage slower than the fastest qualifying time at each Grand Prix.**

Green cells denote the fastest team, orange cells denote the second fastest team, red cells denote the slowest team.
