F1 AWS Graphics are real-time racing statistics, that are broadcasted further on TV as on-screen graphics. The graphics are aimed at transforming a fan’s experience before, during, and after every race by providing relevant data and analysis. Besides, it would help the fans to have a better understanding of the driver and the team race strategy, along with their performance.

Regardless of how effective these graphics get, fans and experts are coming with some mixed response in the same direction. While few have liked the appeal it brings to the sport, others are not so impressed about F1 decision of going ‘ too technical’ with the sport.

The addition of these five graphics will take this graphics tally to twenty-one by the end of the season. Moreover, a new Braking performance graphic is rolling out at the upcoming Imola Grand Prix. With that in place, fans can experience the random braking styles by every driver on the grid.

Besides checking on the style, the graphics will also reflect on various other aspects like braking duration, variation in speed around the corners, and so on.
