Driver Ratings, S.Korea. Pt.3 Red Bull, Renault and Sauber

20 Oct

Sebastian Vettel 9/10 Q2 F1

Shock horror there was no Red Bull on pole and even worse they had to use a set of options in Q1, and yet Seb still managed to finish 12 seconds ahead of 2nd place. Is there anyway to stop this man?

Mark Webber 8/10 Q4 F3

Wasn’t a big splash in the practise sessions and maybe didn’t qualify as high as he’d have liked but was good in the race, once he’d took 3rd spot off Button he held it only losing it when he had to pit, had a late charge on Hamilton but couldn’t find a way past.

Vitaly Petrov 7/10 Q8 F retired

Was completely to blame for his and Schumacher’s retirement but it was a shame as it ended a promising weekend for the Russian and he could have picked up a few valuable to points to cement Renault’s constructors position.

Bruno Senna  6/10 Q15 F13

Dropped to 19th on the first lap and then the race was just about trying to get back up to 15th, a target he went above and beyond.

Kamui Kobayashi 5/10 Q14 F15

It was a downhill struggle for Kamui and the timing of his second pit stop couldn’t have been worse as it made him finish behind Heikki Kovalainen. Few will disagree at the moment that Sauber are currently moving further down the pack.

Sergio Perez 7/10 Q17 F16

Deserves to have finished 12th but a late extra pit stop left him stranded in 16th as the tyres were struggling to go anywhere, but that’s how F1 is and Sergio is still looking impressive for Sauber even when the car isn’t up to his calibre.
