When was competition in F1 at its closest?

When was competition in F1 at its closest?

When we recently asked readers to nominate Formula 1's greatest era, there were some dramatic splits in the results. One statistical measure that ought to be reliable is measuring when the field was at its closest - so how did the numbers compare to readers' instincts?

Late last year, we ran a poll to try to decide Formula 1's greatest era, splitting its history into 1950-60, 1961-73, 1974-82, 1983-93, 1994-2005 and 2009-18, and getting six of our writers to argue the case for their preferred time.

Thousands of you voted, either on social media or by post. The Twitter poll ended with a narrow win for 1994-2005 over 1983-1993, while 1974-1982 was a runaway winner in the postal contest.
