Will Safety car get on race sheet in Malaysia?
« on: March 21, 2012, 04:15:54 PM »

No SC restart at Sepang in 10 years, - what odds this time???                     

The Malaysian Grand Prix holds the unique distinction of being the only Grand Prix circuit at which the Safety Car has not been officially deployed in the past ten years - in spite of often unpredictable weather conditions. With Mercedes-AMG once again supplying both the Official F1 Safety Car and Official F1 Medical Car for 2012 - the 17th season in which it has done so - it's the perfect opportunity to look at how often this race-changing factor comes into play...

The Safety Car was deployed on lap 32 of the 2009 Malaysian Grand Prix, before the event was red flagged on lap 33. However, the official race results only run to lap 31, so the Safety Car deployment is not considered for statistical purposes.

The races with the highest historical probability of Safety Car deployment are in Singapore and Korea: every race held at these venues has seen at least one deployment (four races in Singapore, two in Korea). Canada (14 deployments in last nine races) and Monaco (13 deployments in last ten races) also feature prominently. As for the lowest likelihood, aside from the Indian circuit which has only hosted a single race, this is in Malaysia (no official deployments in the past ten years), Bahrain (one deployment in seven races) and Hungary (two deployments in last ten races).

What about tracks like Monza and Silverstone that have run for decades before wide use of the Safetey Car?

Surely they've got a very low deployment average  ;)

Probably wide track gives Malaysia this kind of record I guess. If you all remember German GP 2000, where safety car was deployed for a fan walking across the track during the race (one of the events which helped Barichello win from 18th on the qualifying) was the most bizarre reasons of safety car employment I have ever seen.

I want Malaysia to be unpredictable, but do not the race to be stopped at half-way stage, a bit improved showing from Mercedes.. :tease:

My vote would be the Scotsman walking down the straight at Silverstone.

So the question for us GG player is: Do we bet the streak, or that a Safety Car is long overdue and the odds will catch up to them this year?

Partly the width of track, partly the rain maybe? If everyone's pootling around (comparatively) slowly in the torrential rain, there's less chance of accidents, hence less safety car. And torrential rain can mean less laps too. Rain yes, safety car no.

The Haggis eaters don't have a monopoly on the male skirt anymore than on bagpipes Lonny, :D - they share both idiosyncrasies with others like Ireland.   

The Silverstone looney's name is Neil Horan, a defrocked Irish priest who likes notoriety.  :(
