As part of its collaboration with Amazon Web Services, it has been revealed that F1 will roll out six new real-time graphics during the 2020 campaign.

The first of these, which will be in place for the season-opening Austrian Grand Prix, will offer fans a ‘Car Performance Score’.

This will be based on a number of statistics relating to the car’s strengths – including power, grip, downforce and drag. There will be four core metrics on offer: Low-Speed Cornering, High-Speed Cornering, Straight Line and Car Handling.

From the second race at Silverstone in August, which is known as the 70th Anniversary Grand Prix, there will be an Ultimate Driver Speed Comparison to help compare current drivers from the past. The data runs back to 1983.

From the Belgian Grand Prix, a High-speed/Low-Speed Corner Performance graphic will allow fans to see how well drivers tackle high speed corners (those above 175kph/109mph), and slow speed (below 125mph/78 mph).

In the second half of the season, F1 and AWS are planning to roll out three different graphics: one for Driver Skills Rating, one for Car/Team Development and Overall Season Performance and a final one for Qualifying and Race Pace Prediction Graphic.

The Driver Skills Rating will aim to identify the best total driver by taking into account various performances – like qualifying, starts, race pace, tyre management and overtaking/defending styles.

So far, F1 rolled out six original graphics, which included Exit Speed, Predicted Pit Stop Strategy, Pit Window, Battle Forecast, Pit Strategy Battle, and Tyre Performance.

Rob Smedley, F1’s chief engineer said: “The F1 Insights we’re delivering together are bringing fans closer to the track than ever before, and unlocking previously untold stories and insights from behind the pit wall.

“We’re excited to be expanding this successful relationship to bring even more insights to life, allowing fans to go deeper into the many ways that drivers and racing teams work together to affect success.”

How Red Bull's dynamic leader Mateschitz shaped its F1 philosophy

The death of Dietrich Mateschitz last month has not only deprived Red Bull of its visionary founder, it has shorn Formula 1 of one of its most influential benefactors. Mateschitz himself was famously media-shy, preferring to let the brand do the talking on his behalf. And, while it’s now normal to speak of Red Bull F1 titles and champions made, Mateschitz never assumed it would be easy or even possible – as ANTHONY ROWLINSON discovered during this previously unpublished interview from 2006…
