F1 Racing’s driver rankings look familiar…

Posted on | Author Keith Collantine

Flavio Briatore, Sepang, 2007I opened up this week’s F1 Racing magazine to discover their rankings of the drivers’ performances so far this year look pretty similar to my own that I posted last week.

F1 Racing polled 28 top F1 personalities on their opinions to compile their list, including Martin Brundle, Flavio Briatore, Keke Rosberg, Jody Scheckter, Pat Symonds, Jean Todt, Christian Klien and Tiago Monteiro.

I sat down with a pad of paper and had a think for a bit. Here’s how they compared…

The biggest differences were Rubens Barrichello (who they rated three places higher), David Coulthard (who I rated three places higher) and Sebastian Vettel (who was very hard to place given that’s he’d only started once).

23. Christijan Albers (F1 Racing: 23)
22. Scott Speed (21)
21. Ralf Schumacher (22)
20. Vitantonio Liuzzi (20)
19. Adrian Sutil (19)
18. Anthony Davidson (18)
17. Takuma Sato (12)
16. Rubens Barrichello (13)
15. Alexander Wurz (16)
14. Sebastian Vettel (17)
13. Jenson Button (15)
12. Heikki Kovalainen (14)
11. Mark Webber (9)
10. Giancarlo Fisichella (8)
9. Jarno Trulli (10)
8. David Coulthard (11)
