F1 Pit Stop Strategist (What I’d Like to See): Post Pitstop Re-entry Points
Why oh why doesn’t F1 get into the spirit of releasing live time data in a API form during the race?
Here’s something I’d like to build, based on track position graphics:
The ability to play along as a pit lane strategist looking for opportunities about when to pit….
For example, I’d select my driver, then using a model of how long it takes to pit, how far behind the traffic is, and how the time difference maps onto distance round the track, we could pop up a graphic showing the window the pitting car would look to return in to…
Post hoc timing data is available, I suppose, so I guess I could model what this might look like anyway…?
