Once again I bring forward my qualifying averages for those of you that are interested in this kind of thing, my methodology is too use the fastest lap a driver achieves whether that be in Q1, Q2 or Q3, a driver may well out qualify his teammate but end up having achieved a slower lap so his teammate gets the benefit towards the average lap.

 

Laps are only used where drivers competed in the same qualifying sessions and only dry laps are used because wet laps are run in inconsistent conditions were much larger gaps in teammates are often seen and often an element of luck might be present as well.

 

It has to be seen that a driver has had a fair chance to set a competitive lap, free of mechanical issues, yellow flags etc, also a driver may simply not have set a competitive lap after running off the track or it could be a combination of all 3 things. Another thing I have to be sure of is that drivers are driving to their maximum ability and not just coasting through the qualifying sessions like we tend to see with the top teams until they reach Q3.

 

2019 (After 3 races)

 

01. Verstappen 0.47s

02. Sainz 0.34s*

03. Perez 0.23s

04. Kvyat 0.12s**

05. Raikkonen 0.07s

06. Hamilton 0.05s

07. Russell 0.03s*

08. Hulkenberg 0.013s**

09. Leclerc 0.008s

10. Grosjean 0.003s

 

*In Australia Norris needed 3 sets of soft tyres to get through Q1, Sainz just had 2 sets of soft runs, on his first run he was quicker on his second run he was impeded by Kubica's crash.

Kubica was over I second slower than Russell but it's looking like he had issues with his floor.

 

**In Bahrain Albon needed 3 runs to get out of Q1 as opposed to just 2 runs for Kvyat, Kvyat was quicker on his first 2 runs but then Albon went quickest on his third run. In Q2 Albon had 2 runs as opposed to just 1 run for Kvyat, Kvyat had an issue with his car preventing him from having a second run, again Kvyat was quicker after the first runs but Albon went quickest on his second run.

Hulkenburg's engine went into safe mode on both his runs in Q1 preventing him from going into Q2.

Are you sure that the gap between Raikkonen and Giovinazzi is right? According to my quick estimation, it should be well over 0.1s.

The lap times are only taken when the drivers have competed in the same qualifying sessions and then it's the fastest lap taken from whatever session in was done in, in Australia Giovinazzi did a faster lap in Q1 than he did in Q2, in Bahrain Giovinazzi only competed in Q1 so I don't use Kimi's laps from Q2 and Q3.

Right, I seem to have overlooked that.

Very interesting indeed. I am a bit surprised at how close the Bottas/Hamilton and Vettel/Leclerc pairings are. I figured they would be close, just not that close. Conversely, I am not surprised at the gap between Verstappen and Gasly, Perhaps that will narrow as the season progresses.

If you would measure gaps between Q1-Q3 (Gasly being a prime example), the gaps would be bigger. But the chosen method of using times in the same session is the best way of comparing similar circumstances.
