The data plots out averages of driver and car performance to try and cut through the media spin and see what driver or team is performing and who isn't. One can look at the points scored for the entire gird but that can be misleading with only the top 10 awarded points and car retirements further skewing comparison.

First shown are qualifying and race driver-car packages. Next the cars are ranked in qualifying and race by averaging the two drivers performances. Ranking the 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( gearbox or engine change, causing avoidable accident last GP etc).

On the race stats to also get a true indication only cars that finish are included and not all cars classified as finished. An example being Lewis Hamilton in Valencia last year where he is running 4th and crashes out after getting tangled with Pastor Maldanado. Hamilton is classified as having finished in 19th place but if we include Hamilton's 19th place it messes up his stats as it's not a true performance indicator so it's just counted as a DNF.
