Introducing Formula 1 Power Predictions

With this post I’m happy to announce the introduction of F1-Predictor power predictions – the culmination of a 3-year effort to systematically collect and analyze historical F1 data to identify ‘golden’ potential. You can find the power predictions on power.f1-predictor.com where you can also see their historical performance.

This Leclerc crash may well mean the end of the championship hopes for the Monegasque and for Ferrari this season. He needs to take 3 wins with Max retiring in order to be slightly ahead in the standings. The championship is long but I can’t see how Max may end up losing so many points to Leclerc. Other than that, Lewis is getting closer and closer to a race win this season – I’m sure he’ll achieve it at some…

French GP 2022

Charles Leclerc finally managed to get a race victory after 3 winless months! Despite that, he reduced the points difference from Max by only 5 points thanks to the sprint race result and the fastest lap extra point given to the latter. Mercedes showed some signs of genuine performance improvements and the upcoming, smooth, French GP should suit their high-bouncing car. Can this be the race where Lewis gets his first win of the season? I doubt it but let’s…

What a race that was in Silverstone! A record crowd of 400.000 during the 4-day event enjoyed the spectacle and saw the home hero, Sir Lewis Hamilton, take his 10th consecutive podium in the circuit and Carlos Sainz celebrate his first-ever race win in F1. The picture may be very different in Austria where the Red Bulls tend to have a historical advantage. Leclerc is desperate to take a victory after 3 winless months (!) while Mercedes needs to prove…

Verstappen managed to win yet another race this season while the championship contender Leclerc finished 5th after starting in the last row of the grid. Unfortunately for him and his fans, Fernando Alonso could not convert his starting position (2nd) into a podium. Similarly, Sainz was ‘so close’ to taking his first victory but his Ferrari could not find traction out of the circuit’s hairpin. Going to Silverstone, Mercedes’ British duo will try to give their best in front of…

Ferrari suffered a huge blow in Azerbaijan with both drivers retiring. We cannot know whether Leclerc would have won the race, but definitely he would have been on the podium. Red Bull grabbed this chance by finishing 1-2 while George, Mr. consistency, Russell got the 3rd place. On another note, Lewis suffered so much from the porpoising (i.e. bouncing) effect that FIA announced plans to tackle this problem. The solution won’t come soon, but it’s nice to see safety being…

Ferrari and Leclerc failed to convert a Monaco pole position to a race win twice in the last two years. The Monegasque desperately wanted to win in his home race but he ended up being 4th due to mistakes in race strategy. Perez went on to win this race and Max extended his lead on Charles. Ferrari seem to have a competitive car and will be hoping to convert this into race wins, and hopefully championships, sooner rather than later….

Monaco GP 2022

Despite a dominant race by Leclerc in Spain, it was Verstappen who saw the chequered flag first since Charles had to retire the car. Surely, he will try to become the 2nd ever Monaco-native to win this glamorous GP since Nico Rosberg won three races in 2013, 2014 and 2015. Mercedes also seems to have done major steps forward and should start pressuring the two top teams for podiums and possibly for race wins given the appropriate circumstances.

Miami GP race proved once more that Red Bull is the fastest car (in Max’s hands) but the Ferraris are consistent, and rather importantly, reliable. Of course, its way too early to say that the Red Bulls will be the strongest car in all races. In contrast, most teams will be bringing heavy updates in Barcelona this week hoping to make gains. The cars are still new and most teams will find many tenths per lap in the coming months….

Miami GP 2022

F1 has finally cracked Florida’s market by hosting the first ever Miami GP that will be held around the iconic Hard Rock stadium – home stadium of the Miami Dolphins NFL team. The current American F1 commercial rights owner have certainly helped F1 boost the number of fans in the last few years, especially with the help of Netflix series “drive to survive”. Still, I have a feeling that F1 will become more mainstream, more entertainment focused, less technology focused…

Ferrari is leading the F1 constructors championship and the upcoming race is held Imola… you can imagine how fascinating the atmosphere created by the tifosis is going to be! Moreover, this race will feature the Sprint format. Personally, I’m not a huge fan of that concept but it, indeed, produced an amazing race last year in Brazil (although this should be attributed to Hamilton, not to the sprint format).
