Atlas F1 is going to keep an eye on the battle between teammates throughout the season with a simple measurement: we compare the qualifying times of each driver against his teammate's result. After every Grand Prix, we will show how teammates have fared up against each other, and where they are overall since the beginning of the season. At the end of the season, the World Champion of Qualifying Differentials will be elected - the driver who was most beaten by his teammates, in seconds. Only those who participate in at least 15 of the 17 rounds are eligible for the coveted crown; and for those who made the efforts and participated in all 17 races, the best and worst result will be scrapped.
The average gap between teammates in Italy 0.341s, one of the season's lowest. In fact, other than the BAR duo and the Minardi duo, the Italian qualifying was vastly close and could have been the closest ever had it not been for these two teams. The gap, in comparison, at Belgium was 0.561s, and previously, the average in Hungary was 0.584, compared with Germany's 1.072; Austria's 0.288s; France's 0.400; Canada's 0.449; 0.486 in Monaco; 0.546s in Europe; 0.48s in Spain; 0.725s in Britain; 0.654s in San Marino; 0.455s in Brazil; and 0.874s in Australia.
