F1 Driver And Team Comparison Stats (Post India)

A look at how teammates and teams are stacking up against each-other after the Indian Grand Prix. Looking at points scored for the entire gird can be misleading with only the top 10 awarded points and car retirements further skewing comparison.

Ranking cars on qualifying and race average positions isn't an exact science as some drivers are obviously better than others but it gives a good idea of the grid order especially when averaging the two teammates performances.

To give a true indication of low fuel one lap raw pace, qualifying penalties are obviously not included.
