Which F1 driver performs best in season 2022?

The F1 season section provides different takes on the seasons and F1 standings. This is the season performance view and provides a more high level view into the performance of F1 drivers throughout the season. Either through head to head comparison with teammates or by trying to filter out the base performance of the car in the race performance graph. The latter view allows to compare driver performance across the field (to a certain degree). Off course based on the limitations of the data.



Explanation
Head to head teambattles
  • The season team battles show the race results comparison between teammates.
  • The teambattles points overview shows the difference in points between teammates with the leading teammate on the left and his surplus shown in the graph.
  • The qualifying team battles show the qualifying results comparison between teammates. This is based on the starting grid (so includes any penalties applied).
Note that if drivers switch during season this is taken into account. If certain results are omitted this is noted in the remarks below the graphs.

Race performance
This section provides insight in to the race performance of the season. It show the average gain in a grand prix for each driver over the whole season plotted against the average qualifying position for that driver. To a certain agree it allows to gage performance independent of the car. So a midfield driver can still show strong race performance, while not qualifying on pole every race. Obviously many factors are in play, making the analysis on race performance a tough exercise. This view helps to assess an aspect of it at glance.

Modes
There are two modes (which can be toggled with the button on top): the first taking into account all GP results. The second takes into account only GP results where a driver has been classified. The latter, while definitely not completely objective nor complete, typically filters out DNFs for mechnical failure or crashes on average (except for late race incidents due to the definition of classified). The obvious downside that it will filter out crashes which were caused by a particular driver as well.

The graph
  • The average gain from qualifying is calculated for each eligible GP as the total sum of all qualifying positions minus the total sum of all finishing positions divided by the number of GP.
  • The average qualifying position is calculated for each eligible GP as the total sum of all qualifying positions divided by the number of GP.
  • The size of the bubble represents the number of GP for each driver.
Hover over / touch the dots on the graph to see the exact data.

The dotted lines indicate the theoretic minimum and maximum possible performance possible. With the third line positioned between these two extremes to get a visible reference. The distance perpendicular to the line (any of them) is a measure of performance, so when two drivers are an equal distance away they would have comparable performance.
