    Random F1 stats and comparisons.

    I need an outlet to express such a conversation. I'd like to on fb, but I'm overwhelmed by the avalanche of idiots on there. So here I am.

    First stats and comparison. Lewis Hamilton career til the Mexican GP and the meaningful part of Michael Schumacher's career (1992-98 & 2000-2006).

    Lewis Hamilton - 227 races, 71 wins, 81 pp, 41 fl.

    Michael Schumacher - 234 races, 89 wins, 67 pp, 71 fl.

    Worthwhile notes -

    Aside from McLaren getting disqualified in 07, both never drive a car lower than 3rd in the wcc.

    Hamilton drove a car that either won or scored the most points in the wcc in 6/12 seasons, 2nd in 4 and 3rd in 2.

    Schumacher drove cars that won the wcc in 6/14 seasons, 2nd in another 6, and 3rd in 2.

    It's already been noted that McLaren were disqualified in 07, and they finished 2nd in 08. However as opposed to being a true reflection of performance, I think it's more of a reflection of the underperformance of Kovalainen that year. Had Alonso continued at McLaren in 08 for example, I suspect McLaren might've won the wcc, but it'd be unlikely that Hamilton or Alonso would've won the wdc..


    Benetton finished 2nd in 94. But I think that was more to do with Benetton effectively being a one car team. Williams benefited from Schumacher being disqualified in Britain and Belgium, Schumacher being banned from 2 races, and picking up 27 points from Mansell and Coulthard.

    Another one to come...

    Lewis Hamilton's pre hybrid turbo career (2007-2013) and Damon Hill's career minus Brabham.

    Lewis Hamilton - 129 races, 22 wins, 32 pp, 13 fl.

    Damon Hill - 113 races, 22 wins, 20 pp, 19 fl


    Worthwhile notes -

    In 7 seasons, Hamilton drove a car that scored the most points in the wcc once, 2nd 4 times, and 3rd twice.

    Hill drove a car that won the wcc 3x, 2nd once, 3rd once. 4th once and 8th. As mentioned in the previous post, the wcc standings of 94 wasn't necessarily a reflection of performance.

    I'll think of some more later.
