Spa driver ratings: Ferrari, Force India and Hispania. Pt. 1

29 Aug

Fernando Alonso 7/10:

After a poor qualifying (8th) Alonso had another of his inspirational starts and found himself 5th early on, was challenging for the lead all the way to his last pit stop and with the car struggling on mediums he got overtaken by both Webber and Button who’d come a long way since the start.

Felipe Massa 6/10:

Deserves credit for out qualifying team mate for the second time in a row but this was because Alonso’s qualifying was poor, started well staying 4th and was 3rd when he found himself ahead of Hamilton who promptly took the position back, probably would have finished 5th or 6th had it not been for a puncture the lap after putting the tyres on.

Adrian Sutil 7/10:

A poor qualifying was thought of as what we would be expecting in the race but after some good driving and a strong strategy he managed to bring the car up to 7th -with some help from Massa’s puncture.

Paul Di Resta 5/10:

After a dismal qualifying effort it took a good drive from the young Scot to haul himself up to 11th and challenge for points.

Vitantonio Liuzzi 4/10:

Managed to out qualify his younger and dare I say it more talented team mate but the HRT just wasn’t up to competing when it came to the race and didn’t seem to ever threaten Timo Glock who finished ahead of him.

Daniel Ricciardo 3/10:

Forgot the only rule of driving for HRT, just finish after crashing out with a mechanical fault on lap 13 whilst the safety car was out.
