F1: POST INDIAN GP – Chart Pirelli Compounds vs Race Winner

by on October 18, 2012

Previously, I posted the chart below before the Indian GP and I stated the following:

The trend has been that Vettel has yet to win with a Hard/Medium combination.  Alonso has never won with a Hard/Soft combination.  Given the above observation and Pirelli’s selection for the final four races, Vettel may hold the advantage in one race, while Alonso may hold it in three races.  ONLY in terms of this season’s historical success rate on the compound combination.  This doesn’t take into account circuit, weather or any other critical factor.

After this past weekend’s Indian Grand Prix, the results suggest that my observations based on the chart below hold true.  As expected, Vettel, won with the combination of Pirelli Hard/Soft tyres.  If we are to believe the chart, then the Medium/Soft combination may favor Alonso in the next round.

  2. Maybe. In Hungary and Germany it was 1:1 between the two drivers, although Alonso did get 13 points more. Hard-medium’s even harder to read into because at Spa Alonso retired and Vettel did likewise in Monza. However, I hope you’re right and we have a very tight title race.
