Being the meganerd that I am, I've tried to compare apples and apples across the field. Using the fastest time set in the test as a percentage of that same team's fastest quali time, we should get an IDEA (in no way is this conclusive) of the quality of the young driver in the same machinery as the regular driver. Percentages are x.xx% off quali time. Vergne - RBR - 0.44% Clos - HRT - 0.65% Chilton - FI - 0.79% Razia - Lotus - 0.93% Bird - Merc - 1.11% Gutierrez - Sauber - 1.15% Bianchi - SF - 1.22% Wickens - Renault - 1.27% Wickens - Virgin - 1.34% (very consistent at 0.07% variation in 2 very different cars) Bortolotti - Williams - 1.47% Ceccon - STR - 2.58% Turvey - McLaren - 2.85% Paffet - McLaren - 3.08% (yikes. This guy is a long time Macca test driver, he should be at the top of this list)
