Introduction for New Readers
============================

I have posted these amateur analyses for several years now in an attempt
to allow comparisons between Grands Prix, seasons, circuits, drivers, etc.

In order to make any meaningful observations it is essential to produce
these stats in as consistent a way as possible. To do this I have made
several "rules" that I try to follow for each race. Please note before
posting to complain that I missed an obvious passing manoeuvre that it
probably has been excluded because of my "rules". The rules are outlined
in the "Disclaimer" below - please read it.

This analysis was mainly derived from the official FIA lap chart which is
usually available at from www.fia.com or www.forix.com on race day or the
following day. The original chart remains copyright of the FIA. Other
excellent Formula One websites are available. This analysis is completely
unofficial.

Disclaimer
==========

For the purposes of this analysis, I only count what I usually refer to as
"genuine" passing manoeuvres, which means that I always exclude:

 a) any place changes made during pit stops
 b) lapping/unlapping manoeuvres
 c) anything during the first lap

Hopefully a) & b) are obvious, c) is because although lap one is often the
best opportunity to make up places it is also not typical of the rest of
the race, and so for the purpose of comparing races with other races and
seasons with other seasons, it is simpler to exclude lap one completely.
For the purposes of this analysis a pit stop encompasses the slowing down
lap and the out lap, since any passes during those laps MIGHT be due to
the stopper slowing down or speeding up.

Note: Passes are not counted in these stats UNLESS the gained position is
held until the start/finish line is next crossed and so gets recorded onto
the lap chart. I try to ignore anything that isn't recorded in the lap
chart, even if it was seen on TV - in this way I try to keep the numbers
as consistent as possible.

These are the passes that I read for the 2004 French GP:

Lap Place  Passer (Passed)
====================================================
 2    19   Panis (Baumgartner)
 3    15   Fisichella (Pantano)
 3    18   Panis (Bruni)
 4     8   Barrichello (Sato)
13    12   R?ikk?nen (Fisichella)
13    14   Gen (Heidfeld)
15    15   da Matta (Heidfeld)
17    10   Webber (Fisichella)

Montoya lost three places on lap 18 because of a spin - ignored

20     7   R?ikk?nen (Massa)
20    15   Panis (Pantano)
20    16   Heidfeld (Pantano)       [team-mates]
40    13   Fisichella (da Matta)
70     3   Barrichello (Trulli)

That's 13 passes altogether, one more than last year.

Most: 3  Panis

I saw your historical stats which included the USGP some time ago and
although you said it was during the rain, the number was around 36 passes,
which was definitley a spike in the overall (for all the numbers going back
to '97).

Tony George could have used that stat to sell more tickets!  :)

That's great info.
