|ATLAS F1 Volume 7, Issue 14|
|by Marcel Borsboom, Netherlands|
For the fourth year running, 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 Brazil was a mere 0.25s - the smallest average gap in years. This, compared to 0.455s in last year's Brazilian Grand Prix, or 0.588 in the previous round, in Malaysia, and 0.852 in Australia.|
