Hamaya Practice Championship standings after round 1

17 Mar

One weekend down and the Hamaya Practice Championship is a tense fight between McLaren and Mercedes. Remember that this takes place in every practice session of the weekend and in each session the fastest driver picks up 8 points down to 1 point for the 8th fastest. Here are the standings after round 1:


  1. Michael Schumacher        Mercedes           17
  2. Lewis Hamilton                 McLaren            15
  3. Jenson Button                    McLaren            13
  4. Fernando Alonso              Ferrari                10
  5. Mark Webber                     Red Bull              10
  6. Nico Hulkenburg              Force India         7
  7. Nico Rosberg                     Mercedes             7
  8. Romain Grosjean             Lotus                    7
  9. Sergio Perez                       Sauber                  6
  10. Kamui Kobayashi            Sauber                  4
  11. Paul Di Resta                    Force India         3
  12. Daniel Ricciardo             Toro Rosso          2
  13. Felipe Massa                    Ferrari                  2
  14. Pastor Maldonado          Williams              2
  15. Sebastian Vettel               Red Bull               2
  16. Heikki Kovalainen          Caterham            1
Did you ever think you’d see the day when Pastor Maldonado was leading Vettel in a championship?

Schumacher celebrating leading the championship already! (warning this Schumacher is quite a bit younger and may just be celebrating something else i.e. another of his victories).

  1. McLaren                  28
  2. Mercedes                 24
  3. Ferrari                      12
  4. Red Bull                   12
  5. Force India             10
  6. Sauber                      10
  7. Lotus                          7
  8. Toro Rosso               2
  9. Williams                   2
  10. Caterham                  1

McLaren and Mercedes have started quicker than most, but with 57 practice sessions left and teams regularly not going as fast as possible these standings are very unlikely to stay as they are for long.
