This year, Formula 1, in cooperation with Amazon Web Services, enriched the broadcasts with real-time information and infographics collected on the track using real-time intelligence and artificial intelligence calculated from previous “historical” data. timing performance is predicted for us.

Free practice does not tell the average spectator the exact strength, but AWS will try to calculate who will perform in the qualification, who will fog, based on the time spent in training, the tires, the grip conditions, and the relative performance of the cars. in the exercises, who is expected to surprise, who loses how much time compared to the better ones.

Interestingly, another question, of course, is that the fate of the most suitable spectator predicts the fate of the pole in advance, but in the other positions you could at least get excited, but what if we know in front of the timer who we can wait for?
