Testing Fastest Times.

6 Feb

By now you should have a vague idea of the standings from last weeks testing. But, over the days the track will have got more rubber put on it, so times on the 3rd day should be quicker than the 2nd and the 2nd quicker than the 1st. Because of this I’ve decided to try and estimate the times as if they were all on the first day, to do this I collected the results for all 3 days. If there were any drivers who’d driven on days 1 and 2, I would get how much they’d improved by. I’d then find the average (mean) for these improvements. I did the same for the second and third days. But as Nico Rosberg improved by over 5 seconds between days 1 and 2 (because he could only do 9 laps at the start of day two before the car suffered hydraulic problems) I have excluded his result as it is an anomaly. For laps on day 2 I got an average of 1.273 seconds which I add onto their day 2 times, and for times on day three they add 2.460 seconds (1.273 + 1.187), that way everyone’s time is as if it was set on the first day. Here are the results, it goes driver name, team name, what year the car was build for and  day 1 time.
