Well this ranking is about who performs better, not really a best-to-worst one. And yes the car/team in question and previous year position influences a lot. Renault has been very disappointing this year and should do much better than that so they get low points, McLaren the opposite.


This is mid-season driver rankings not mid-season who's car is more disappointing rankings.

That's what happens though, if next year mercs stop winning and get 4th-5th usually they will be rated low, and if williams get 9th-10th they will be rated high, its reward or punishment taking into account historical performances, subconsciously or not

Fine but even if they were level by the end of last year, I very much doubt Carlos is now the 3rd best driver whilst Nico is only the 14th.

Hulk and Sainz finished 7th and 10th in 2018 WDC, 69pts v 53pts, not a big difference. First half qualifying Nico ahead, second half Carlos ahead. So really we shouldn't read too much into their comparative performances in 2018, they were closer than people were saying here.

 

Renault have failed to maintain their level and Daniel is an awkward teammate being a proven winner. One driver (Carlos) made the right move (against predictions) and Nico is picking up the pieces in a bad situation. It's always hard to judge the performances back in the field but with McLaren producing a regular strong car with good reliability it's Carlos who is well on top. Any move by Renault to ditch Nico would be like blaming him for the team's inept performance. With their budget and given where they started from they should be doing better and blaming the drivers is rubbish.

Leclerc has not been two marks better than Vettel. I'd put them level. Both on 7

1) Verstappen - Almost perfect

2) Hamilton - A bit of a diva 1st half of the season as usual. Expecting to dominate in the 2nd half as usual

3) Sainz - A revelation. After the Renault drop he has been extremely consistent. Made up for Alonso.

4) Bottas - Great stat but falling back recently.

5) Raikkonen - Consistent as usual and a solid points haul

6) LeClerc - Fast but inexperience brings in mistakes. Extremely unlucky to have lost 2 wins.

7) Ricciardo - Outpacing the Hulk is no joke in his 1st year with the team

8) Norris - Top rookie. Keeping Sainz honest , starts and racecraft need to improve

9) Albon - Great performances and getting better and better. Deserved promotion

10) Hulkenberg - A bit of an anomaly. Seems disinterested, whether it is because Ricciardo is slightly ahead or the car is a POS. Needs new scenery

11) Perez - Strong under the radar drives. Unlucky to not have more points

12) Vettel - Not a team leader anymore. Mistakes have continued from 2018 and pace is choppy

13) Russell - Great performances in the slowest car. Tough to rate considering the driver in the other car.

14) Kvyat - Great podium but overall not as impressive as Albon

15) Magnussen - Some solid drives when the car is there but severely handicapped by machine

16) Stroll - Some good races and can strech tyres but too many Q1 eliminations

17) Grosjean - The flashes of speed are missing but the mistakes are still there. Graduated to damaging his own team's chances

18) Giovinazzi - Worst of the rookies* . Seems to have cut out the crashes but way too slow

19) Gasly - Can't hold 6th place in the 2nd best car. Should have been demoted sooner

20) Kubica - GP3 driver
