The Grand Prix 2013

The Grand Prix 2013

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.

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.

How To Tailgate in style

How To Tailgate in style

tailgate-in-style-with-a-hitch-cargo-carrier

Infographic Review

Infographic Design: B

The design for this infographc is interesting because it is a football field and the field in broken into three columns. These columns are food, drink, and seating which then list different facts about tailgating. One thing that I do not really like is that all of the facts seemed to be jumbled together and it is hard to distinguish them from each other. I think using more defines sections or better titles would have prevented this. The section of the top college tailgating destinations is nice and I like that they are listed on a large sign with their logos.

Infographic Information: B+

The information is interesting and helpful especially when it talks about how to pack all of your tailgate gear. It does make sense to use  cargo carriers to pack all of the things you will need for a tailgate party. The statistics and facts were fun to read so overall this was a pretty nice infographic.
