thank you. I thought you also exclude qualies where mechanical failures hindered a car/cars, as they are notconsistent as well.

It depends on how bad the variance, drivers can lose the odd tenth here and there for various different reasons

Posted 04 October 2014 - 12:54

Maybe I'm missing something, but there's one thing that got my attention. I don't understand why a difference in the last qualifying for Rosberg of +0.197 means a +0.03 difference in the total (they were tied until the last session), while an almost same difference for Kobayashi -0.202 in the last qualifying, means -0.14 in the total (from +0.94 to +0.80).

### #365

Posted 04 October 2014 - 13:42

Well the mathematics are that with Hamilton and Rosberg you are going from a 0s average to 0.197s for Japan so that's 0.197s from the normal, with Kobayashi and Ericsson you are going from a +0.94s average to -0.202s for Japan in respect to Kobayashi so that is 1.142s from the normal.

Posted 19 April 2015 - 00:53

I didn't count Malaysia for the top teams because they are just looking to progress past Q1 and don't have to push and I guess that would be the main difference, there are some smaller ones like both Vettel and Kimi doing faster laps in Q2 then they managed in Q3 which you have overlooked

Why shouldn't you count it? Ferrari qualified in Q1 on mediums, so they were pushing hard to beat others on softs. It can be argued that when a driver doesn't participate in Q3(especially for technical reasons), his Q2 time isn't representative either, since top teams are just pushing enough to get into Q3 and saving tyres for the race. Also, sometimes the conditions change for worse in Q3, but a Driver A manages a stellar lap while Driver B sets a better lap in Q2 in better conditions while Driver A wasn't pushing much in Q2 to save tyres. Is it fair to compare their times then?

Really selective way to count or discount qualifying sessions. If you're counting Q2, you should count Q1 too, especially when the top teams qualify on mediums, since they have to push a lot to beat others on softs.

I've always and always, compared times set in the same session. I used to do threads on qualifying differentials a handful of years ago.

Comparing across sessionsâ€¦ don't believe in it.

By chance the diff might not always be that big, but you're providing yourself "cleaner" material to work with, if you stick to times set in the same session.

Bahrain GP Qualifying

Q1

Raikkonen 1-34.568

Vettel 1-34.919

Q3

Vettel 1-32.982

Raikkonen 1-33.227

I'm not convinced that the drivers in the fastest cars are laying everything on the line in Q1?

Like I have said before I'm looking for the fastest time a driver can do whether it be in Q1, Q2 or Q3, Q1 is relevant for the drivers fighting to get into Q2 but I don't believe that the Ferrari or Mercedes drivers are having to lay it on the line to get into Q2.

### #382

Posted 20 April 2015 - 21:07

No, so then you compare their times in Q3, when they do. Same with the ones further back, those that are likely to qualify somewhere in the Q2-segment, will give it their all in that session.

### #383

Posted 20 April 2015 - 21:13

I think if someone is able to post a faster lap in Q2 than in Q3 then the Q2 lap is more relevant to what the driver is capable of

### #384
