About the Book
As a driver of technological and engineering innovation, Formula One motorsport is unsurpassed in its relentless pursuit of improvement on a weekly basis. But whilst sports such as cricket and baseball provide a wealth of geekery for the stats fans, F1 seems to lag behind.
If you're attracted by F1's passion to push engineering and technology to the limit, this book will help you grab a range of Formula One datasets by the scruff of the neck and wrangle a wide variety of insights from them.
Using the latest in open source data analysis and visualisation techniques, you'll learn how to extract the stories that often go unnoticed from whatever Formula One data you can lay your hands on. And maybe, just maybe, you'll be able to use the skills you learn along the way outside of the F1 context...
Let your passion for Formula One drive your data skills to new heights... #f1datajunkie
