I think anyone other than Vettel (1) on top would be a crime. He has performed in such a way to lead and win, and do it often.
Button (2) and Alonso (3) would be my 2nd and 3rd respectively. Both have performed above what would be expected of them, given their situations.
Webber (8), Massa and Maldonado are the three I’d criticize the most. Webber and Massa have, considering their team mates performance, done absolutely dreadfully. And as for Pastor… Some times… and not often enough he showed promise… And those times were more than outnumbered by disasters. Both due to pace and aggression. He should be close to the bottom I’m sure of it.
I think Sutil (7) did very well. I think people over rate Di Resta, I cite Sutil’s 9th place and best of the rest at 42 points to Di Resta’s 27. Di resta is a rookie, but he has had the car to get the points.
Rosberg (5) and Schumacher (6) I think, did well. I’d easily place Rosberg above Massa and Webber.
Hamilton (4) is the one that I’m not sure on. Yes he had a few smashing races. But since the half way mark he has outnumbered them with some shocking results. I wouldn’t put him above 4th.
I think both Torro Rosso and Sauber drivers did well. Especially Alguersuari.
And Heikki has been massive for Lotus. Getting into Q2 and all! Ricciardo is the other low order driver that impressed me, he shouldn’t be beating Liuzzi but he either did, or got very close to doing it.
I think Ruben’s 12th in Brazil shows what he can do if he is motivated. But yeah, not as great as I would have hoped…
What was meant to be two paragraphs just turned into a rant. But I blame the one asking the question for this. :D
