There were 22 F1 races in 2021 and 17 in 2020 but FormulaRapida.net still has prepped up an absolute difference of points and other things for teams.

After a remarkable 2021 F1 season, FormulaRapida.net felt it worthwhile to explore the statistical discrepancies between this past year and that which preceded it, 2020. Using both direct comparisons, and metrics accounting for variables such as an abbreviated 2021 season, we contrasted performances of the drivers.

There was decrease of points among the front-runners, but the likes of Red Bull, McLaren and Ferrari increased their numbers – especially the latter after the disaster of 2020. The Williams team scored handy points in the period too, to better their 2021 numbers.

The following is the statistical analysis of each F1 team in 2020 vs 2019:

In order to account for a 17-race season to match 2020, FormulaRapida.net also used a different metric, calculating the points tallies of all drivers in the first 17 F1 rounds of 2021, and comparing that to their respective totals in 2020. Using this method, we were able to compare performances more directly.

The following is a statistical analysis of each F1 teams’ performance with values adjusted:

[Note: We understand that the absolute difference doesn’t show the entire picture but we are taking it in terms of a full F1 season for 2020 and 2021. For this reasons, we used the 17 vs 17 formula as well, taking 2021’s first 17 rounds’ results]
