Best Lap Comparison - Italian GP 2009
====================================

Q: How does the best lap of the whole weekend (3 practice sessions, 3 qualifying
periods and the race) compare to the best lap of the weekend in 2008?

Here are two tables - one compares driver with driver; easy enough if the same
driver remains in the same team. If not we compare the 2008 driver with the guy
who replaced him.

Note: Honda has morphed into Brawn-Mercedes, while Force India have switched
from Ferrari to Mercedes power.

'S' is the session when the best lap was achieved (P1/P2/P3/Q1/Q2/Q3/R)
'Lps' are the total laps in all sessions
'Diff' is the gain/loss in seconds
'%Diff' is the difference in time as a percentage of the 2008 time

Negative Diff/%Diff mean that the driver/team improved. Positive means they got worse.

There can be several reasons for the variations seen.

Notes

Only Nico Rosberg and Jaime Alguersuari were unable to better the equivalent time from
2008.
It should be noted that all the 2008 best times were set during Friday practice, the only
dry sessions that weekend.


The second table takes the best lap time from both drivers in each team and compares
with the equivalent team last season. Probably a better comparison.

All 10 teams were quicker than last year, partly due to the weather in 2008.


Taking the positions of the teams from table 2 we can produce an average position for
the season to date.
