I assume Keith isn’t doing mid season rankings till after the Hungarian GP, so here are mine.
Alonso – 9/10.
Extracted maximum at every GP so far, put himself in the position to take advantage of others
misfortunes, possibility of emulating Schumi’s ’98 season with a different ending. No 10 from me
due to luck + Massa making the car seem much worse than it is. Would give him 9.5 if I did half
Hamilton – 9/10.
Has been let down by his team in the pits and on track, can still win the championship though.
Vettel/Webber – 8/10.
Neither has been consistent enough over the season so far, with the best car overall. If either was
dominating the other/performing at all tracks he would lead the championship.
Raikkonen – 7/10.
Is getting outqualified by his teammate and is rather tentative in the first few laps, compromising
his race on more than one occasion.
Perez – 7/10.
Has regulations that suit his style, a good car, but has lacked consistency.
Button – 6/10.
Looked like a championship contender in the first 3 races before falling off the radar. Season pretty
much over as far as the WDC is concerned.
Grosjean – 6/10.
Beating WDC teammate but throwing away points in first lap collisions with other drivers in AUS,
MAL, MON, GBR.
Kobayashi – 6/10.
Seems to get the weaker strategies of the two Sauber drivers, lacks consistency, would like to see
him in a better car though.
Rosberg – 6/10.
If he was beating Shumi in qualifying like last year and had similar race pace he would be higher
up in the standings. Underachieving so far.
End of Season:
WDC – Alonso.
WCC – RB.
Schumi to win at SPA/Monza^^.
