    Who would win each race of the year, if everyone drove the exact same car?

    In this hypothetical Formula 1 season, everyone is driving the same car. Let’s just say this car is the the 2000 Ferrari, to avoid any confusion, as no one has driven that car before.

    Every driver on the current grid is in the absolute peak of their career.

    2011 Vettel
    2006 Alonso
    2012 Hamilton
    2005 Raikkonen
    2011 Button
    2010 Webber
    2013 Rosberg
    2008 Massa
    And so on…

    NOTE: In this calendar, replace USA with Turkey, as one race is not enough to make a conclusion on who is the “Austin master”.

    China – Lewis Hamilton
    Bahrain – Sebastian Vettel
    Spain – Fernando Alonso
    Monaco – Nico Rosberg
    Canada – Lewis Hamilton
    Britain – Fernando Alonso
    Germany – Mark Webber
    Hungary – Lewis Hamilton
    Belgium – Kimi Raikkonen
    Italy – Fernando Alonso
    Singapore – Nico Rosberg
    Japan – Sebastian Vettel
    Korea – Sebastian Vettel
    India – Sebastian Vettel
    Abu Dhabi – Lewis Hamilton

    Largely agree with that list, the only things I would change (Apart from the fact that I don’t think Alonso was in his prime in ’06) would be having Alonso win in Singapore, and perhaps someone else as the winner in Spain, though I’m not sure who. Out of the current crop, I don’t see anyone who has really excelled there.

    That’s debatable. You can use whatever version of the driver you think was at his best.

    Monaco – Mark Webber
    Canada – Lewis Hamilton

    Japan – Sebastian Vettel
    Korea – Sebastian Vettel
    India – Sebastian Vettel
    Abu Dhabi – Sebastian Vettel
    Turkey – Felipe Massa
    Brazil – Jensen Button

    Using 2013-Vettel (think he is at his best right now, even better than 2012), 2012-Alonso, 2013 Raikkonen, 2012-Hamilton, 2008-Massa, 2011-Button, 2010-Webber. 2013-Rosberg.

    Btw, Vettel “owns” the Asia races in my list. By that im not saying he’s the best. Just saying he’s very good at those races. Nice game by the way! :)

    IMO these are a few close calls:

    Monaco — Webber, Rosberg or Alonso.
    Britain — Webber or Alonso.
    Germany — Webber, Hamilton or Alonso.
    Italy — Vettel or Alonso.
    Singapore — Vettel, Alonso, Rosberg and Di Resta.
    Abu Dhabi — Hamilton or Vettel.
    Brazil — Massa or Hulkenberg

    Nurburgring, as it is the German GP on the 2013 calendar. Had it been Hockenheim, I would’ve given it to Alonso instead of Webber.

    Of course, I’m going to have to do it differently, and see who might win the hypothetical Formula One season, based on podium positions (3,2,1 points).

    Australia: Kimi Räikkönen, Sebastian Vettel, Jenson Button
    Malaysia: Sebastian Vettel, Fernando Alonso, Lewis Hamilton
    China: Lewis Hamilton, Nico Rosberg, Sebastian Vettel
    Bahrain: Sebastian Vettel, Kimi Räikkönen, Felipe Massa
    Spain: Fernando Alonso, Mark Webber, Lewis Hamilton
    Monaco: Mark Webber, Nico Rosberg, Fernando Alonso
    Canada: Lewis Hamilton, Fernando Alonso, Sebastian Vettel
    Britain: Mark Webber, Sebastian Vettel, Fernando Alonso
    Germany: Fernando Alonso, Lewis Hamilton, Jenson Button
    Hungary: Lewis Hamilton, Jenson Button, Sebastian Vettel
    Belgium: Kimi Raikkonen, Sebastian Vettel, Lewis Hamilton
    Italy: Sebastian Vettel, Fernando Alonso, Jenson Button
    Singapore: Sebastian Vettel, Fernando Alonso, Nico Rosberg
    Japan: Sebastian Vettel, Kimi Räikkönen, Nico Hülkenberg
    Korea: Sebastian Vettel, Felipe Massa, Fernando Alonso
    India: Sebastian Vettel, Fernando Alonso, Felipe Massa
    Abu Dhabi: Sebastian Vettel, Lewis Hamilton, Kimi Räikkönen
    Turkey: Felipe Massa, Sebastian Vettel, Lewis Hamilton
    Brazil: Felipe Massa, Nico Hulkenberg, Jenson Button

    Sebastian Vettel: 36 points (2+3+1+3+1+2+2+2+3+3+3+3+3+3+2)
    Fernando Alonso: 19 points (2+3+1+2+1+3+2+2+1+2)
    Lewis Hamilton: 17 points (1+3+1+3+2+3+1+2+1)
    Mark Webber: 14 points (2+3+3+3+3)
    Kimi Räikkönen: 11 points (3+2+3+2+1)
    Felipe Massa: 8 points (3+2+3)
    Nico Rosberg: 5 points (2+2+1)
    Jenson Button: 5 points (1+1+1+1+1)
    Nico Hülkenberg: 3 points (1+2)
