There has been much talk over the last few days about who will have the second seat at Renault alongside Robert Kubica next year. Whilst Vitaly Petrov hasn’t been ruled out of having the drive in 2011 he has been told that his future is in his own hands and that he will have to prove that he is worthy of the seat. To date, Renault have scored 89 points in the Constructors Championship with 83 of them coming from Kubica and only 6 from Petrov. I thought that it …

You may have already noticed a few new buttons over to the left in the last week or so, under the subheading Statistics. These are the new look season statistics pages for 2010, although you can look back to 2009 to compare them as we have also updated last season’s statistics to reflect the new data. We just thought we’d take a few moments to introduce the new pages, giving an opportunity for feedback before the season starts.

Both the World Drivers’ and World Constructors’ Championship standings as you may have …

In the final “Thursday Thoughts” of the off-season, Maverick posed the question
“Which blog article or articles have you written that you were most pleased with writing and why?”

After reading Mavericks qualifying analysis and discovering just how dominant Lewis Hamiton had been in qualifying today I got to wondering if this had been the best qualifying performance of the season? So, armed with the actual grid positions achieved over the season and the fuel adjusted grid positions I set about trying to determine who should receive the award of Pole King.

First I should explain a bit about how I set about analysing the data and then after showing you the results, I’ll leave the interpretation in your …

Well here it is, the third and final part of my naughty step trilogy. This time I am concentrating on the 2008 Formula One season and on trying to discover whether there is any inherent bias towards or against any one team. In particular, I plan to focus on Ferrari and McLaren since those are the two teams most frequently assumed to be more or less likely to have a penalty… but there will be more about that later.

The thing I noticed straight away from the 2008 season stewards reports …

Carrying on from the first part of the series that looked at drivers penalties, I decided to have a look at the constructors. Perhaps it’s because F1 has rarely been out of the news for all sorts of political shennanigans this season, it came as somewhat of a surprise when I looked at the constructors penalties to discover that apart from one or two notable exceptions, the teams have been fairly well behaved.

It seems somewhat odd to me that Trulli and Glock were demoted to the back of the grid …
