GIR Erster Beitrag: 25. Juni 2003 Letzter Beitrag: 27. August 2003 Seeing that selling engines will be a big theme next year and also has been a point of discussion on this board I have taken the time to gather some statistics After 8 races and 159 starts (20 cars per race, Jenson Button was DNR in Monaco), 47 cars didn't finish, which results in a average reliablity of 70%. Ferrari is at the top with a reliablity of 100% followed by Williams BMW and Renault with 94%. Jordan Ford did the worste. In the whole season just 1 time did they had a dual finish in Monaco. Jordan broke their engine 3 times and their transmission 3 times. Williams BMW is still fine tuning, testing and tinkering on their cars. If they can keep this up I think they can be the Ferrari killer everybody has been looking for. McLaren is putting up a hell of a fight aswell, they're testing their new car as we speak and according to their info, they are able to shave 0,8 secs of their laptimes. If this is true and they can build a reliable car then it is going to be an interesting season. Here's the complete table: Team Reliablity Ferrari 100% Williams 94% Renault 94% McLaren 88% Toyota 69% BAR 60% Sauber 56% Minardi 56% Jaguar 50% Jordan 44% note: This table does not account for driver failure, just hardware breakdowns. Here's a table covering the driver performances, this table does not take in account hardware failures, just how many times a driver finished: Driver Team Finishes Ralf Schumacher Williams 8 Michael Schumacher Ferrari 7 Kimi Raikkonen McLaren 7 Fernando Alonso Renault 7 Cristiano da Matta Toyota 7 Rubens Barrichello Ferrari 6 Juan Pablo Montoya Williams 6 Jarno Trulli Renault 6 David Coulthard McLaren 5 Jenson Button BAR 5 Mark Webber Jaguar 4 Heinz-Harald Frentzen Sauber 4 Nick Heidfeld Sauber 4 Giancarlo Fisichella Jordan 4 Ralph Firman Jordan 4 Jos Verstappen Minardi 4 Antonio Pizzonia Jaguar 4 Jacques Villeneuve BAR 3 Olivier Panis Toyota 3 Justin Wilson Minardi 2 Little Schummy is at the top, yes yes above his brother, and BMW also managed to get a few interesting wins this year. I think when BMW finally decides to go all the way with their engine we'll see even more wins.
