Telemetry comparison between the best laps of Scuderia Ferrari, Mercedes ad Red Bull in the 2022 Formula 1 Bahrain pre-season testing session, with data about Speed, Throttle, RPM, Gear, DRS:
Some interesting data to note:
Mercedes is the only one to use the 8th gear on the straight to T4
Ferrari opens the DRS 50m later than the others before the finish line
Ferrari seems to be consistently faster accelerating out of corners
Ferrari is only one flat out in T7
Ferrari also seems capable of breaking later in some critical corners like T1, T10 and by a large margin in T13 and T14
Ferrari is also changing gears at lower revs, maybe that’s the optimal point for their engine, but if not, they can be even faster, it looks like Ferrari engine is finally at Merc and Honda level.
