2021 French GP: Quali overview

Let’s take a quick look at how the qualifying session of the 2021 French GP developed!

There are a few observations about this chart that are worth mentioning. First, not all the laps done by the drivers are shown. Laps in which drivers went in or out of the pit lane are not counted. Also, laps that were considered very slow and not representative (minimum lap time done by each driver + 6 seconds) were removed from the chart. Second, the solid line represents the evolution of the fastest lap. Points that are connected by the line were the fastest lap done at the time of the session. Third, I know the qualifying session is less than 2 hours long. This is the time reported by the F1 live timing app so I left it as is.

Qualifying summary table

As stated in previous posts, I will now also post this quali summary table that shows most of the information you want to know about the qualifying session. The information of the table is self explanatory, but let me know what do you think about this table so that I can keep improving it.

      Thank you for the nice comments. Which image do you say is wrong? I see both images (overview and table) correctly. Maybe it’s a problem with the cache. I will clear it just in case.
