LIES, DAMNED LIES AND STA­TIS­TICS

F1 Racing - - “ONE RACE AT A TIME” -

But sta­tis­tics are not ev­ery­thing. Ros­berg is driv­ing bet­ter this year – and Hamil­ton oc­ca­sion­ally less well – in some cru­cial ways.

Let’s look at Hamil­ton rst. Yes, he has had the worse re­li­a­bil­ity. But as of the sum­mer break, he re­cov­ered with that bril­liant run of six wins in seven races, which turned a 43-point decit into a 19-point lead. Yet, at the time of writ­ing, he had not won again, and had lost ground at least partly due to his own in­con­sis­tency.

He re­cov­ered bril­liantly in Spa from the back of the grid to third, only to uff his start in Monza af­ter tak­ing a dom­i­nant pole and hand Ros­berg another win. He drove com­par­a­tively poorly in Sin­ga­pore, would have won in Malaysia had it not been for an en­gine fail­ure, and then messed up his start again in Ja­pan.
