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

12 Oct

Heikki Kovalainen 6/10 Q18 F18

The gap is closing between the midfield teams and Lotus and Heikki proved it racing Bruno Senna and Rubens Barrichello at points during the race.

Jarno Trulli 5/10 Q19 F19

Still can’t beat team mate in qualifying and it’s the same during the race, next year may be Jarno’s last at Lotus.

Lewis Hamilton 6/10 Q3 F5

Another race another incident involving Massa, this time Lewis just turned in on Massa knocking a piece off Massa’s front wing and calling out the safety car. Lewis though was running good pace during the end of the race and was almost on pole.

Jenson Button 9/10 Q2 F1

Amazing concentration shown by Jenson as he held off a rapidly chasing Fernando Alonso at the end and was constantly putting fastest lap. This race was Jenson’s first win with McLaren where the conditions of the track haven’t changed during the race.

Michael Schumacher  7/10 Q8 F6

One of Michael’s best races for a long time, leading a whole lap (the first since 2006) and completing a top 6 of former world champions to take home 8 points. Most importantly to Michael that’s 7 more than Rosberg.

Nico Rosberg 7/10 Q24 F10

Unlucky to suffer a hydraulics problem during qualifying but was quick enough during the race to move up 14 places to finish a comfortable 10th.
