2019 Bahrain GP: Interactive density plot for top 5 drivers

Important information

  1. The graph is best visualized with a computer. Phones and tablets may be able to display it but the visualization is not optimized for mobile devices.
  2. You can hover the mouse over the points to see a particular lap time for any driver, as well as in which what lap was that time done.
  3. You can click on the legends to remove one or more drivers to only focus on the drivers that you want to see.

What is the graph showing?

  1. The graph shows all the laps done by the top 5 finishers at the Bahrain GP.
  2. Only laps where drivers went into the pits, as well as laps when the safety car was out, where removed.
  3. The bottom axis (x axis) shows lap times.
  4. The left axis (y axis) shows the density, which shows the distribution of data over the race. For example, seeing a driver with a lap of 1:36.000 and a density of 0.4 would mean that around 40% of his laps where done around time 1:36.00.
  5. The continuous line shows the density for a particular lap time. The more the distribution is shifted towards the left, then the more on average the driver did faster laps. The more towards the right, then the driver did more slower laps on average.
