2015 Testing Stats

Testing is over for another year, meaning that soon we’ll be back doing what we love, watching free practice at 1am on a Friday morning not sleeping.

Over the 12 days of testing the nine teams totalled 8599 laps on their new cars, 1499 laps more than last year with two fewer teams taking part. 24 drivers took part in testing, giving a total distance of 40918.414km, that’s more than once around the Earth at the equator.

For the second year in a row Mercedes have done the most laps and distance in testing, and apparently they did that with just one engine. Mercedes completed 1340 laps and 6120.568km, to put that into context the maximum possible race distance last year was 5746.946km. McLaren did the second least distance in testing, just 380 laps and 1750.967km, Force India with just three days in their car did 365 laps and 1699.075km.

Only McLaren and Force India have done fewer laps than they did in testing last year, both doing less than 50% of the laps than last year. The biggest improvement was Lotus, doing just 238 laps last year and 918 laps this year, a 386% improvement. And while on the subject of McLaren, they averaged less than half a race distance per day of testing.

Rosberg has again done the most laps in testing, 554 laps last year, this year he did 759, more than McLaren and Force India combined. Rosberg averaged 577km per day of testing and did over two full distances on four different days.

Ignoring all of the test/reserve drivers taking part in testing the driver with the least laps was Alonso, just 117 laps and 536.009km, meaning that Rosberg’s AVERAGE distance per day was greater than Alonso’s total testing distance.
