F1 2014: The Season So Far in Numbers

With eleven races having already been completed just eight stand between 22 drivers and the end of the 2014 Formula One season. Mercedes have dominated so far and the team are leading the constructors championship by a considerable margin while Nico Rosberg is on top of the drivers championship. We have already looked at the winners and losers of 2014 (part one & part two) but here is an overall look at the season so far in numbers.

The Basics

Unsurprisingly, Mercedes top most of the basic statistics. Nico Rosberg has most pole positions (6), Lewis Hamilton has most wins (5), and Rosberg also has most podiums (9). Mercedes have the most pole positions overall (10) – Williams are the only other team to have a 2014 pole – while they also lead the wins tally (9), with Daniel Ricciardo winning the other two for Red Bull. Mercedes have 16 podiums in total (from a possible 22) compared with Red Bull’s 7.

It’s Fernando Alonso who has most points finishes – a 100% record for the year – but Mercedes have most points finishes as a team. You will also find the Silver Arrows at the top of the fastest laps total as well as the team have 7 – that’s six more than any other team. While Mercedes may be dominating every other statistic one area they falter is finishes.

Jenson Button and Alonso have most classified finishes – another 100% record – with McLaren and Ferrari also leading the way with 21 each. Mercedes have 19 classified finishes from 22 so far. Alonso is the only driver to finish every race in 2014 and Ferrari lead the actual finishes tally as well.

Qualifying

Not one driver in 2014 has a clean sweep in qualifying. The driver with the best record over their team-mate is Romain Grosjean who currently leads Pastor Maldonado 10 – 1. Nico Hulkenberg leads Sergio Perez 9-2 as does Kamui Kobayashi over Marcus Ericsson. Other biggish gaps are 8-3, with Valtteri Bottas leading Felipe Massa and Jules Bianchi leading Max Chilton.

The most evenly matched team-mates in qualifying can be found at McLaren, Toro Rosso, and Red Bull where one driver is beating the other 6-5. Jenson Button, Jean-Eric Vergne, and Daniel Ricciardo are the drivers ahead.

There have been 17 grid drops so far in 2014 with drivers losing a combined total of 94 places between them (not including when drivers are excluded from qualifying/made to start from the pit-lane).

A total of 12 drivers have received grid penalties in 2014 of either 3, 5 or 10 places. Esteban Gutierrez has dropped the most places in total – 23 – from four grid penalties. Three of these were as a result of car problems (gearbox) and one was for a driver error (causing a collision). Other drivers with grid penalties this year are as follows:

  • Valtteri Bottas: 1 car (5 places, gearbox), 1 driver (5 places, impeding)
  • Max Chilton: 1 car (5 places, gearbox), 1 driver (3 places, causing a collision)
  • Daniel Ricciardo: 1 car (10 places, unsafe release)
  • Jean-Eric Vergne: 1 car (10 places, loose wheel in practice)
  • Sebastian Vettel: 1 car (5 places, gearbox)
  • Jules Bianchi: 1 car (5 places, gearbox)
  • Kamui Kobayashi: 1 car (5 places, gearbox)
  • Lewis Hamilton: 1 car (5 places, gearbox)
  • Adrian Sutil: 1 driver (5 places, impeding)
  • Pastor Maldonado: 1 driver (5 places causing a collision)
  • Sergio Perez: 1 driver (5 places, causing a collision)

The top ten in terms of average starting position is as follows:

  1. Nico Rosberg 1.90
  2. Daniel Ricciardo 5.09
  3. Lewis Hamilton 6.09
  4. Sebastian Vettel 6.45
  5. Fernando Alonso 6.72
  6. Valtteri Bottas 7.72
  7. Felipe Massa 8.18
  8. Nico Hulkenberg 8.18
  9. Jenson Button 9
  10. Kevin Magnussen 9.54

In terms of starting positions the biggest gap between team-mates is 4.18 between the Mercedes duo while the smallest gap between team-mates is 0.45 between the Toro Rosso and Williams pairing.

Races

Monaco, Canada, and Hungary have been the races so far with most safety cars – 2 – while Malaysia, China, Spain, and Austria all had 0 safety cars.

All but two of the eleven races so far have seen all 22 cars start the race. Sergio Perez failed to start in Malaysia due to a gearbox problem while Pastor Maldonado failed to start in Monaco thanks to a faulty fuel pump. The races with most classified finishes were China and Spain – both with 20 – while Australia had the fewest classified finishers (13). The race with most retirements was the Canadian Grand Prix which saw 9 drivers retire from the race while China and Spain had fewest retirements – 2 each.

The race with the most lead changes was Hungary (8) which also had the most different race leaders (5). Bahrain saw 15 drivers finish on the lead lap while only four managed that feat in Monaco. Eight teams scored points in Monaco – including Marussia’s first ever Formula 1 points – while only 5 scored in Bahrain and Austria. The most positions gained in one race was achieved by Lewis Hamilton last time out when he climbed 19 spots from 22nd and starting in the pit-lane.

The Malaysian and Bahrain Grand Prix both saw 60 visits to the pit-lane while the British Grand Prix saw fewest visits (25). The Bahrain Grand Prix saw 57 pit-stops with the British Grand Prix only featuring 23.

The race with most retirements in the pit-lane was Canada (5) while Spain and Germany saw none. There were most penalties in the pit-lane (stop/go or drive through) in Monaco (4) and fewest in China, Spain, Canada and Hungary (0).

Leading

Eight drivers have led a race in 2014: Nico Rosberg, Lewis Hamilton, Daniel Ricciardo, Fernando Alonso, Felipe Massa, Jenson Button, Sergio Perez and Valtteri Bottas. Of the eight drivers Rosberg has led most laps (342) while Button has led fewest (1).

Laps

Fernando Alonso is the only driver in 2014 to complete every racing lap. So far this season there have been 698. Next up are Jenson Button with 693 and Daniel Ricciardo with 691. Marcus Ericsson has completed fewest racing laps (466) with Jean-Eric Vergne and Pastor Maldonado both also completeing fewer than 500 laps each (484 and 487 respectively).

McLaren are the team who have completed most racing laps in 2014. They have completed 1369/1396 (98.07%). Only one other team has completed over 90% of available racing laps and that is championship leaders Mercedes who have completed 1303 in total (93.34%).

McLaren also dominate in overall laps for the season with 1695 for Kevin Magnussen the most of any driver. This takes into account laps completed in all three practice sessions, qualifying, and the race every weekend. The Caterham duo have completed fewest laps overall with Kamui Kobayashi on 1212 while Marcus Ericsson has completed a few more (1277). McLaren as a team have completed 3357 laps overall – 133 more than Mercedes.
