How F1 teams really performed in 2017

Formula 1 technical guru Gary Anderson rates the 10 teams using his performance index, and compares their progress (or regression) to last season.

Motor racing is all about performance, so to understand that better it's possible to track the ultimate pace of the 10 chassis over the course of the season.

To do this, I take the fastest single lap per team from each of the 20 cars each weekend and turn that into a percentage of the outright fastest. Averaging these over the 20 races this season gives a 'supertime' to rank the pace of the cars.
