Number two in the teammate head to heads, with the Toro Rosso and Williams drivers. Some more stats to give this time as they have all scored points and made it into Q2 or Q3.

So far it seems to be similar to the story at Caterham, with one driver doing better in qualifying while the other does better in the race. Now for something I couldn’t do with the new teams, some more detailed qualifying stats.

Vergne has just been completely destroyed by Ricciardo in qualifying. Ricciardo incredibly managed to qualify 6th in Bahrain while the same weekend Vergne couldn’t even get into Q2. All qualifying stats are from before penalties have been applied, so the grid drops don’t affect any other stats.

Vergne maybe not so dominant in the races as it looked at first, Ricciardo has finished ahead of him more, has a lower average finish, better on tyres, more races in the points but has fewer points. Ricciardo’s 6 point scoring positions have all been in 9th and 10th place, but all 4 of Vergne’s were in 8th.

*As my qualifying stats are before penalties Maldonado was 2nd in Spain not 1st

Pretty big difference between them here, Maldonado better in everything but retirements and if he made a few less mistakes could have been even further ahead.

Huge differences, an average of 6 places and 0.787 seconds between them in qualifying, even with Maldonado’s EIGHT grid drops in 2012 he has started ahead of Senna in 15 races. Senna has only managed to reach Q3 once while Maldonado did it 13 times and never dropped out of Q1.

A lot closer in the races, in the 14 that both have finished it’s split straight down the middle 7/7 but with Maldonado having a slightly better average finish. Senna has finished in the points in twice as many races but has 14 points less than Maldonado, if Senna was matching Maldonado in qualifying then he would almost definitely be ahead in the Drivers’ Championship or at the very least a lot closer to him from the consistent finishes.

Two more teams done, next up will be the Force India and Sauber drivers.
