Formula 1 will introduce six new television graphics that will feature on its broadcast coverage throughout the 2020 season.

In a bid to bring more information to fans during grand prix weekends, F1 has teamed up with Amazon Web Services to develop a host of new graphics for the revised 2020 campaign.

The first of these new TV graphics - a ‘Car Performance Score’ - will appear during coverage of the season-opening Austrian Grand Prix at the Red Bull Ring on July 5.

F1 says the information presented will be based on a million data points per second coming from the cars, with the ‘Car Performance Score’ relating to the car’s strengths in different areas, including power, grip, downforce and drag.

At the 70th Anniversary Grand Prix, which is being held as the second of two races at Silverstone in early August, an 'Ultimate Driver Speed Comparison’ will debut. This graphic will compare the performance of current drivers to those from the past, dating back as far as 1983.

The Belgian Grand Prix will see the introduction of a ‘High-speed/Low-speed Corner Performance’ graphic, providing information on how drivers are faring through high and slow speed corners.

An additional three will be added during the second half of the 2020 F1 season. These will include a 'Driver Skills Rating’, a 'Car/Team Development and Overall Season Performance’, and a 'Qualifying and Race pace Prediction’ graphic.

Speaking about the new graphics, F1’s chief engineer Rob Smedley said: “The F1 Insights we're delivering together are bringing fans closer to the track than ever before, and unlocking previously untold stories and insights from behind the pit wall.

"We're excited to be expanding this successful relationship to bring even more insights to life, allowing fans to go deeper into the many ways that drivers and racing teams work together to affect success."
