Filed under: Sports Infographics | 6 Comments »

APIA understands the over-50 crowd of today is nothing like previous generations. Retirees and boomers right now are far more active, more involved, and better with technology than their parents or grandparents were and business and service providers are moving to keep up with them. If your idea of a pensioner is a grey-haired woman sitting in a rocking chair, you need an update. She and her friends are getting involved in all types of activities and they have interests that would surprise you.

The Grand Prix 2013

Filed under: Sports Infographics, Transportation Infographics | 9 Comments »

The Grand Prix 2013 season will be kicking off in Melbourne this year and even though there will be 22 drivers will be taking to the grid in, with 12 different nationalities and we have proof why Britain will rule the roost this year.

For starters there are three main points of why we think this. Firstly, Britain has collected the most championship points throughout history. Secondly, in 64 years of Grand Prix over 25% of total races have been won by the British and finally 22% of the fastest laps have been set by the British.

Britain also have a great ratio for driver to world champions as throughout history America has produced 19% of all Grand Prix drivers. But only 2 have won the championship – Mario Andretti in 1978 and Phil Hill in 1961. In comparison the UK has also produced 19% and has won 14 championships, including Jackie Stewart’s Triple Crown.

The only worrying point is with Lewis Hamilton’s recent move to Mercedes, we will see a Britain in a German car again, but history shows that only one driver has ever won a race in a German car and this was the legendary Sterling Moss in 1955, ironically at the British Grand Prix. So Hamilton might need a bit of luck this year.

If you’re looking for entertainment then you won’t be let down by the British as 17.5% of crashes has been down the British and their thirst to entertain the crowd.

So that is why the British are going to rule the track this season. This infographic has been created by HostelBookers with information gained from reliable sources Formula1.com and the BBC. For more stats check out our Hostelbookers blog.

The grey background does not work for me. I  don’t think it works well with the other colors. It looks as if the infographic is not finished. I like the creative way the charts show the information

The information is fun and light and helps to give a little background on the Grand Prix.

The design does a good job of helping to showcase each of the women featured. The black background give the infographic a gambling vibe. I like the use of poker chips and symbols throughout the infographic.

Infographic Information: B

Each woman had a little bio about them that gave the reader some decent information. The stats were interesting but overall the information was not really that great.

Sometimes the simplest of backgrounds can help make the best infographics. The use of the snowy mountain help creatively show the types of winter sports and their speeds.

Infographic Information: B

I think this infographics shows just how dangerous these sports are. I know many of us watch these sports on t.v. but to see just how fast some of the sports can get is insane. I am not sure I would want to ski jump at 59 mph. I know this information gives me a new appreciation of these winter sports.
