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

4 Dec

Heikki Kovalainen Q19 F16 7/10

Another normal weekend for Heikki, just beat Jarno in qualifying before starting strongly and moving up the field and competing with the midfield teams before falling back and beating one of the midfield.

Jarno Trulli Q20 F18 6/10

Jarno was just 0.3 seconds off Heiki in qualifying and like Heikki he had a strong start, rising two places, but that’s where the comparisons end, whilst Heikki battled the midfield Jarno was stuck in a limbo between the midfield and Virgin/HRT.

Lewis Hamilton Q4 F ret. 6/10

Despite being fastest in P2 the best Lewis could manage in qualifying was 4th, but he wouldn’t keep it. At the first corner Alonso took him around the outside and he dropped further back to 6th trying to get 5th from Massa sadly though a gearbox failure  left him stranded and out.

Jenson Button Q3 F3 8/10

Despite qualifying highly Jenson only seemed involved in the race when Fernando Alonso pulled what may be the overtake of the season to steal 3rd. Jenson then came in earlier than the rest and looked to have completely lost 4th to Alonso until he overtook at the end of the DRS zone to secure 3rd.

Michael Schumacher Q10 F15 6/10

The final position doesn’t tell the true story, he was clipped by Bruno Senna on lap 12 (ish) fell to last place and lapped and then had to work tirelessly to regain a position as good as 15th, not bad.

Nico Rosberg Q6 F7 7/10

Stunned to qualify 6th ahead of Felipe Massa, sadly for him both Ferraris had good starts and so Rosberg only managed to lead Massa in the race for around 20 meters he wasn’t put off though he raced Sutil amazingly but sadly couldn’t get ahead.
