Exactly my thoughts!
But Bella got the point: this is only one data set from one race - and there is much more (tyres, no. of stints, setup, experience of the team) which influences the pace. We would need more of these overviews to get a clearer picture.

it's a shame that it'd be a pain in the arse to do, but what's most relevant for me is the pace of the car relevant to the car in front and behind at any given time. also relevant is the lead, for instance in this race with the driver changes out of sync you were looking at the gap between the car in front but also the lead. or it'd be interesting to see pace as a continuous line for each car, if that makes sense.

unfortunately due to the useless live timing online it's not possible to do that whilst you're watching the race unless you're at the circuit or privy to the full timing setup.

having been at the race, i can say there was a decent but not wsr size crowd, and the circuits attempt to lure people in who wouldn't otherwise bother with a rooftop party appeared to have fallen on deaf ears. decent music though, especially for packup

it seems somewhat ironic that there's almost always more people milling around on the grid than watching in the grandstands.

I think this race showed the clear advantage of having three pro drivers over two and a fast am. The Morand car aside (they were just too well hooked up this race), the advantage that pro silver drivers Chatin and Gonzalez provided was monumental. Chatin is a young improving pro, who is already miles better than the true amateurs and will only improve. He struggled to get near Webb and Nelson at Imola and RBR, but this weekend he was just as quick, if not more-so. Gonzalez is a "bad" single seater pro compared to the very best coming through, but he's not racing against Grosjean, Perez, Maldonado and Bianchi (in single seaters) anymore. Radolfo is considerably better and faster than the likes of Thiriet and Dolan, and that's a huge advantage when you need to run 3 silver driver stints per race. Of course, you will see an am perform very well once in a while (like Badey did at PR), but over the season I'll take a young pro over any am for performance. Even at Morand, they have a young pro in Hirsch who can do some of their silver stints without much performance loss to the gold+ pros.

The Jota Zytek is most likely the fastest car from race to race (and the most consistent in terms of pit work), but Dolan has been a big weakness for them this season. They won Imola because the other top teams had problems and they lost RBR because Dolan was further off the pace than Chatin. Ticknell and Albuquerque show the true pace of that car, but might yet lose the championship.
