Driver Ratings, S.Korea. Pt.2 Lotus, McLaren and Mercedes

19 Oct

Heikki Kovalainen: 7/10 Q19 F14

Did an amazing job to finish higher than both of the Saubers and was starting to really challenge the midfield teams during the race, one of Team Lotus’ missions at the start of the season.

Jarno Trulli 6/10 Q20 F17

Yet again couldn’t challenge Heikki, finishing behind him in all the sessions they both went out in. But he was ahead of both the Virgins and the HRTs.

Lewis Hamilton: 8/10 Q1 F2

It took an amazing effort to take pole position and until Vettel got away so quickly he was the favourite to win. The real positive for Hamilton will be that he didn’t crash when fighting with Mark Webber.

Jenson Button: 7/10 Q3 F4

Dropped to 6th on the first lap, but reclaimed 4th when the Ferraris made a mistake in their pit stops’. But that wasn’t the end of the battle as Alonso and Massa then started to chase him down and once Alonso had cleared Massa the fight really was on, Button just about hung on to 4th.

Michael Schumacher: 7/10 Q12 F retired

Was a man on a mission and already 9th when Petrov ruined his rear wing, he maybe could have challenged the top 6 if he’d have set set a better time, something well within his grasp having finished top in FP1 and 6th in FP3.

Nico Rosberg: 7/10 Q7 F8

Was the best of the rest in qualifying and then was racing Button for 4th at one point, but a badly timed pit stop brought him out too far back and so could only finish 8th once Alguersuari had overtook him on the last lap.
