Ferrari attempting to pile the pressure on Liberty by bring some of their other brands into F1 as title sponsors.

Alfa already announced for Sauber, Haas likely to be tied up with Maserati, all deals expire with the current engine format

Thanks for that. It's pretty clear we are in for a period of hardball / brinksmanship - just hope it doesn't get silly.

BTW, my mate has got a rather nice Maserati- it's gorgeous 8) (#globby.etc.)

Or just hoping someone less obsessed would start the subject?

But no one did.

Interesting, I'm sure this will stir up some mature debate...

https://newatlas.com/computer-modelled- ... ime/43147/

Quote:
A new academic research paper (entitled Formula for success: Multilevel modelling of Formula One Driver and Constructor performance, 1950–2014) published by a team from the Sheffield Methods Institute at the University of Sheffield in the UK offers some remarkable insights into the world of Formula One through advanced mathematical modeling.

The Sheffield team set out to answer three inter-related questions:

1. What percentage of car-driver performance is contributed by the driver and what percentage is contributed by the car/team?

2. How do the percentages in #1 vary for different types of circuits and weather?

3. Who are best individual drivers of all time, in order of the difference they made to performance?

The research has produced a top 50 best drivers list which, unlike all previous such lists, is not based solely on opinions or results statistics. In simple terms, advanced modeling has been used to assess the relative performance of the individual cars and teams each year, then taken that into account in assessing each driver's performance over his F1 career. The old adage that "first you beat your teammate" has never been truer.

Taken from the article...

"We didn't look at the data before 1979, for various reasons, but mainly that it becomes harder to define teams the further you go back. The driver effect has declined over time since at least 1980, going from about 30 percent driver in the early 1980s to about 10 percent driver today."


P.S. the top 5 for those who can't be arsed to open the link...

1 - Fangio
2 - Prost
3 - Schamacher
4 - Jim Clark
5 - Senna

Some will take umbridge with Prost over Senna.

(Aren't Fangio and Clark pre-1979?)

It'll never happen for many reasons, but you'd love to see in theory say the Mercedes and Sauber driving crews switch cars. Thought one of the most interesting driver moves since I've watched F1 was when Damon Hill went from being World Champion with Williams to driving for TWR Arrows the next year. It's also why there's something lost with this modern generation of drivers that almost none of them drive anything besides an F1 car when they're in the series.

11. Christian Fittipaldi
12. Lewis Hamilton

Jack Brabham is ranked pretty low for a 3-time champ.
