The statistics submitted in this very thread support my claim. No driver was credited with more overtakes. So, because we know that the RB8 was the best car this year - validated by statistics known as "points" - we can conclude that no team/driver had to compensate for as many mistakes that left them further down the grid than they should have been.mbvinnie wrote:I thought it was widely acknowledged that Red Bull (Seb in particular) used the strategy as I described.

Can you clarify what you think their strategy is? How do the statistics agree with that?

I agree the original stats probably had bias in how they were presented, but they were still partially useful.

And it's still the most useful analysis so far on this thread in terms of a starting point.

(All of this is extreme sarcasm. It's just to show that statistics can mean whatever anyone wants them to mean. Hence, "...lies, damned lies, and statistics.")
