Driver Ratings Singapore, Pt. 2 Lotus, McLaren and Mercedes

27 Sep

Heikki Kovalainen: 8/10 A Team Lotus (soon to be beat a Caterham) beat a Group Lotus (soon to be Team Lotus (confused?)), is there anything more pleasing than that. Heikki had a solid race and was – as usual – the best of the ‘new’ teams.

Jarno Trulli: 7/10 A good weekend by Jarno and was set to take second place in the best of the rest race, Tony Fernandes says that the retirement was to be on the safe side so they wouldn’t have to take a 5 place grid penalty. Jarno summed up in one tweet, “Jarno’s missed the second turn, looks like his power steering is getting worse”.

Lewis Hamilton: 1/10 Lucky to be getting a 1 but having made mistake after mistake every weekend he’s going to have to learn to concentrate, most embarrassing thing is that the place where he hit Massa was the same as where he hit Webber last year.

Jenson Button: 8/10 A great drive to only finish 1.7 seconds behind Vettel, did well all race especially the start where he was up to 2nd and never lost it, just think, if he’d been the car behind Vettel at the safety car restart he could have been the victor as Vettel gained 6 seconds on the lap after the safety car restart.

Michael Schumcher: 6/10 Had a huge crash and was lucky not to hit his team mate when flying towards the barrier. A bit of a shame that he didn’t set a Q3 time but his race wasn’t much better.

Nico Rosberg: 6/10 Was saved being overtaken by Massa on the last lap by Vettel lapping them but he drove a race that deserved 6th and was unlucky to be beaten by Di Resta.
