Here's Some Interesting Numbers

Here's another interesting one about fast lap of the race '07 vs '08

Street type tracks:

2007 2008

Albert Park: 1:25.235 1:27.418

Monaco: 1:15.284 1:16.689 wet track at start

Montreal: 1:16.367 1:17.387

Road courses:

Malaysia: 1:36.700 vs. 1:35.366 vs. 1:34.223 (2004) vs. 1:35.483 (2005)

Bahrain: 1:34.067 vs. 1:33.193 vs. 1:31.447

Spain: 1:22.700 vs. 1:21.670

Turkey: 1:27.295 vs. 1:26.506

France: 1:16.033 vs. 1:16.630

It seems that the '08 cars are about 1 sec slower on the street tracks but 1 sec faster on the road courses. The only exception is France. Perhaps they didn't need to go faster because McLaren and BMW were stuck behind slower cars and Ferrari got so far ahead they called off the dogs early in the race.

However, this is interesting because of no traction control and standard ECU, they still manage to go quicker on the road circuits.

So the latest aero-gremlin solutions are better then electronics on the faster circuits.

It goes to show that F1 does indeed have the best drivers around. :D Or should I say, the most adaptable?

I'm not sure what it shows either but , as far as talent goes maybe a WRC driver would be more representative of a drivers skills then say , driving on a road in the summer .

I just saw this. Interesting post. The result is pretty much to be expected and your stats show it very well. You'll need to explain it better if you expect F1 fans to appreciate it though. :P
