Everything is relative, and we can therefore read the same data in two opposite keys. Let’s stay on Formula 1: for example, the Ferrari doubled his tally of points in the constructors’ standings after ten races. The Scuderia di Maranello in fact went from 74 to 148, moving up from sixth to fourth position. But it is a partially obligatory improvement: worse than 2020, in summary, it was really difficult to do. However, the overtaking against Aston Martin and Alpine remains, two teams that in total have lost 115 points.
|8||Alfa Romeo||4||Alfa Romeo||2||-2|
The most obvious absolute collapse is that of Mercedes, which in the comparison between Sochi 2020 (tenth race last year) and Silverstone 2021 lost 81 points: his +174 has crumbled and has even become a -4 compared to Red Bull. Milton Keynes’ team recorded the most noticeable improvement in absolute terms: +97. McLaren has also improved (+57), demonstrating how close the distances between the first two and the third-place zone have come. Last year Woking was 260 points off the top, this year 126: less than half.
