This post is the second in a series of posts from my F1 blog called 'Making Up The Numbers', designed to review the 2009 F1 Season by analysing the data from the races. The first was on Fuel Usage Data for the engines and can be found here: http://f1numbers.wordpress.com/2009/12/ ... -fuel-use/
Originally I had planned to review all the driver data in one post, however I realised quite quickly that if I wanted to include all of the data then the post would be too long!
Therefore I have decided to split the posts into byte sized chunks of analyses for ease of reading – which I hope the lovely and learned readers of the blog agree is the right thing to do
The first category I want to look at is Driver Classification – where the driver finished in a Grand Prix. Rather than just look at average points scored, I thought it would be better to look at the average finishing position as it shows consistency in a better way. I will also include average points scored graphs for comparison at the end.
Here is the link to the post: http://f1numbers.wordpress.com/2009/12/ ... ification/
The next posts I will write will be on Qualifying Performance, Fastest Laps and Driver Consistency, finishing off with a weighted scoring for each driver to try and determine who was the best all-round performer.
I hope you enjoyed this post and look out for the next in the series, which will be available soon!
