Atlas F1 is going to keep an eye on the battle between team mates throughout the season by race and overall averages (again). The measurement is simple. We compare the intra-team difference in seconds on Saturday. Some may say compensation must be given in the favouritism between the number one and two seats within the team. We, on the other hand, do not grant that pardon. For better or worse, our analyses will be on the perfect world of egalitarian status in intra-team rivalry.
With nine qualifying sessions completed for 1999, the differentials are on a roll. Let's see which drivers deserve bragging rights.
The average gap between teammates in Austria was 0.511 of a second. . This, compared with Britain's 0.463 seconds; France's 2.514sec; Canada's 0.588sec; Spain's 0.471sec; 0.671sec in Monaco; 0.601sec in San Marino; 0.446sec in Brazil; and 0.922sec in Australia. The overall average gap for the first nine rounds of 1999 stands on 0.392.
The Ferrari pair are left out of the overall average differentials, due to Michael Schumacher's absence and Mika Salo making only one appearance so far in a qualifying session as a Ferrari driver.
