JDF1 2010 Update. Down to 13 teams or less ???

JDF1 Drivers' qually times

Many have their opinion on who is the best…

My stats display clearly who has performed better.

We all know that Jenson Button has become the 09’ World Champion and Sebastian Vettel has won the DHL fastest lap award! There’s no doubt they deserve this recognition and I personally congratulate them for their teamwork. Job very well done guys !!!

However, if you consider qualifying times, Vettel wasn’t actually the fastest driver. I believe that a racer’s speed should be evaluated constantly in every race, not only where they shined. This is just like the championship where points are rewarded in every race.

As you can see by clicking on the spreadsheet, that Rubens Barrichello has performed better in qualifying than anyone else!

This is the second time he has done this! In 2003 he out-qualified none other than Michael Schumacher!

I'm not saying that Rubens deserves the Championship or the DHL Award more than Button or Vettel. You need more than speed for that.

However if I were you, I'd listen to a very wise man in F1...

Sir Frank Williams...

Most, if not all, people do...

Button shows why he's the fastest one during every Grand Prix... Consistancy.

JDF1 Drivers points total.

I’ve added more detail to FIA’s points system to include the top 10 finishers. This practically includes ALL the drivers in the championship. For example Massa & Kovalainen tied at 22 points in 09’ and many tied with no points. My point system unties and classifies them in the final standings.
I’ve also respected FIA’s difference in each final position, for example, 1st = 10pts, which is worth the same as two Fourth places (5pts. + 5pts.)

I hope this has been understood and well received by most of you. Any constructive criticism that would help this site be more informative is welcomed. LET THE 2010 SESON BEGIN !!!
