Driver Ratings, Brazil. Pt. 1 Ferrari, Force India and Hispania

29 Nov

Fernando Alonso Q5 F4 8/10

With a better car and more luck he could have kept the podium position he lost late on in the race. The start -as usual- was better than most others and had it not been for a decision to go outside not inside he could have overtaken both McLarens not just Hamilton.

Felipe Massa Q7 F5 5/10

Another disappointing race in another disappointing season for Felipe as he finished 31 seconds behind Alonso who had the same car as Felipe finished in his trademark 5th position (his 6th this season). Felipe livened up the end of the race though as he performed doughnuts all over the track.

Adrian Sutil Q8 F6 8/10

Force India are going from strength to strength and this race proved it as Adrian beat both cars from Mercedes and Renault it’s a shame Adrian may be leaving Force India next season as he’s an integral part of their progression.

Paul Di Resta Q11 F8 8/10

Paul was disappointing in FP1 as he was slower than reserve driver Nico Hulkenburg, again. Despite this Paul had a good race  and by coming in a few laps earlier for his first stop he had a better strategy than most others and finished up 8th.

Vitantonio Liuzzi Q21 F ret. 6/10

It was an amazing feat in qualifying to beat both of the Virgins and he kept that form till the point where he retired.

Daniel Ricciardo Q22 F20 5/10

Drove well to help HRT take 11th in the championship and has performed well up in his brief stint with HRT although we’ll need to see him in a competitive car if we are to be able to evaluate him properly.
