Another Formula One Grand Prix race weekend, another chance to tinker with some F1 visualisations, this time from China. Not much new this week – it’s been more a case of me making a start on tidying up my scripts, but I have started trying to think about driver comparisons.
So for example, on the driver DNA charts, we see a difference in gear change behavior between Button and Hamilton about 40% of the way into the track:
We can see this a little more clearly on a geographical projection of the gear change data (the tracks are offset from each other to aid visualisation):
We can also see some different in rThrottlePedal behaviour:
Okay, that’s enough for just now – back to coding up some KML views for Google Earth ;-)
Data is grabbed from the McLaren F1 Live Dashboard during the race and is Copyright (©) McLaren Marketing Ltd 2010 (I think? Or possibly Vodafone McLaren Mercedes F1 2010(?)). I believe that speed, throttle and brake data are sponsored by Vodafone.
