Buemi hasn’t beaten Alguersari all year.
DNF’s: Buemi: 5 Alg: 2
Who finished highest? : Buemi: 8 Alg: 9
Finished lower than quali position: Buemi: 8 Alg: 5
Just outside the points (11th or 12th): Buemi: 5 Alg: 7
Buemi’s got more points but that’s largely due to his 8th place finish in Canada. He’s made more mistakes, had more than twice as many DNF’s, and most worryingly in 8 races, he actually lost ground and finished lower (usually quite a bit lower) than he qualified. Alguersari’s consistently hovering around 11th or 12th, whereas Buemi is just as likely to crash out as to score points.
Coupled to that, he drove like a muppet in Korea, when his teammate handled the difficult conditions much better.
