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.

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.

Spanish GP 2022

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…

Emilia Romagna GP 2022

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).

Australian GP 2022

Ferrari’s drivers, Leclerc and Sainz, sit on the top of the drivers standings after two races in the new generation cars. Of course, Verstappen and Perez had a DNF and lost several points – still, Ferrari has more than double the points of the closest competitor. Due to restrictions and logistical challenges relating to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the Melbourne GP was cancelled in 2021 but returns this year with several changes in its layout and four DRS zones! How…

Saudi Arabian GP 2022

After an amazing Ferrari show in the opening race of the new era, the next GP is held in Saudi Arabia. A circuit that produced a great show and lots of controversy in 2021. This time the dynamics have changed with Mercedes and Lewis trying to get on top of their new car issues. In contrast, the Ferraris seem to have interpreted the new regulations pretty well and have possibly delivered a championship-worthy car. Still, it is very early days…

New season, new cars, new champion……. Hmm, I’m not really sure about the last one since FIA has practically recognized that Masi’s decision in Abu Dhabi GP was wrong by firing him and therefore robbed Lewis his 8th world championship. Nevertheless, the new F1 era with heavily revised cars will bring more opportunities for cars to race closer but also provides teams with a chance to start car design from a blank sheet of paper. That’s why we’ve seen many…

Abu Dhabi GP 2021

The title decider is approaching! Max and Lewis are exactly level on points going to the final race of the season – something that has happened only once again in F1 history. In an exciting yet farcical Grand Prix in Saudi Arabia where Verstappen drove recklessly, Hamilton proved why he is a 7 times world champion by taking a victory with a heavily damaged car. I don’t want to keep discussing about this. The only thing I’m hoping for is…

Saudi Arabian GP 2021

Eight points separate the title contenders with just two races remaining. Lewis has the momentum but Max is the only one who can clinch the world title in the upcoming race. The Saudi Arabian race will be the fastest street track with the cars expected to have an average speed in excess of 250km/h (~160 mph) – something that might favor the Mercedes cars. In case Lewis wins and takes the fastest lap point with Max finishing second, F1 will…

Qatar GP 2021

A personal issue did not allow me to post my predictions for the Brazilian Grand Prix but F1-predictor is returning this week. Hamilton delivered a masterclass and despite being given a 25-place grid penalty (20 in the sprint race and another 5 in the Sunday race), he managed to win the race by a comfortable margin. Mercedes seem to have unlocked new potential in their car and the last 3 races will be a spectacle for all F1 fans!
