An interesting statistic from Joe Saward in the opening piece of this weeks Motorsport Monday, Issue 60.
He tells us that the winner of the Chinese Grand Prix won it taking 26 seconds more time than last year’s winner. Soem might say that’s a reflection on the new cars being slower than the old ones. Yes it is but, Over the course of the race this would be a tiny fraction „slower“ than last year whilst using about one third less fuel. That’s what the message should be from sports, we can improve things.
