of game theory to number of pit stops that a driver should take for the optimal time. The author stated optimal time (ignoring the damage of tyre and etc.) to race 78 laps with only soft tyre. Then he compared the optimal time with resulting time from varying strategies in number of pit stops. Considering some chances of incidents in a race, he concluded a racer should take flexibility in multiple pit stops for positive payoff. However, he also acknowledged the limitations in his model (Formula one teams uses huge data sets for predictions, but the outcome is always variable.) Sebastien Vettel’s one pit stop in 2011 earned him a victory in Monaco even though that’s not dominant strategy in Monaco Grand Prix. He lost much time from worn tyre, but he won because he had a pit stop in red flag. (This means other drivers had to slow down during the race because of safety issues while Vettel did not have to slow down because he took pit stop ) Some people say this kind of variances impede fairness of the race, because Vettel’s victory followed by his great luck. However, I say they make the race more interesting because they make the dominant strategy unpredictable. (at least by a man’s capability.) http://thegameisafoot.weebly.com/2/post/2012/03/the-game-theory-of-formula-1- winning-the-monaco-grand-prix.html

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
