F1 to introduce ‘Car Performance Scores’ in new TV graphics package

F1 Driver Score

Formula 1 has partnered up with Amazon Web Services to provide new infographics for their TV coverage throughout the 2020 season.

Amazon Web Services appeared on screens last season with their tyre performance, pit stop and battle forecast graphics.

The new graphics will include car performance scores, which will be rolled out at the Austrian Grand Prix, while the ultimate driver speed comparison will be introduced at the 70th Anniversary Grand at Silverstone.

Later on in the season Amazon will roll out a further four graphics, including high-speed/low-speed corner performance, driver skill ratings, car/team development and overall season performance.

Following the announcement, Formula 1 chief engineer Rob Smedley said: “Over the past two years, Formula 1 has embraced AWS’s services to perform intense and dynamic data analysis.

“The F1 Insights we’re delivering together are bringing fans closer to the track than ever before, and unlocking previously untold stories and insights from behind the pit wall.

“We’re excited to be expanding this successful relationship to bring even more insights to life, allowing fans to go deeper into the many ways that drivers and racing teams work together to affect success.”
