Eastern Championship round 4 standings:

25 Apr

This race marks the end of races in the east and we have to wait until the Singapore Grand Prix on the 23rd of August for that moment. For those of you who don’t know how this works this championship only covers the 9 races furthest east and is the same as the official world championships except the scoring system is that of pre 2010 (10-8-6-5-4-3-2-1). Here are the current driver standings:

  1. Sebastian Vettel             22            Red Bull                (previously 5th)
  2. Mark Webber                 20            Red Bull                (3rd)
  3. Lewis Hamilton            19             McLaren              (1st)
  4. Jenson Button               18             McLaren              (2nd)
  5. Fernando Alonso         16             Ferrari                   (4th)
  6. Nico Rosberg                 14             Mercedes              (6th)
  7. Kimi Raikkonen           14             Lotus                      (8th)
  8. Sergio Perez                    9              Sauber                    (7th)
  9. Romain Grosjean         9              Lotus                      (11th)
  10. Bruno Senna                  8              Williams               (9th)
  11. Paul Di Resta                 8              Force India          (12th)
  12. Kamui Kobayashi         3               Sauber                   (10th)
  13. Jean-Eric Vergne          1               Toro Rosso           (13th)
  14. Pastor Maldonado        1               Williams               (14th)

Sebastian Vettel this week became the 4th leader of the Eastern Championship in 4 weekends (this stat is also true of the drivers world championship) and from this weeks standings we can see Red Bull appear to be back on the rise with Seb and Mark sitting in 1st and 2nd. Although Felipe Massa picked up his first WDC points this week he didn’t finish in the top 8 to pick up Eastern Championship points.


  1. Red Bull              42            (previously 2nd)
  2. McLaren             37            (1st)
  3. Lotus                   23             (6th)
  4. Ferrari                16             (3rd)
  5. Mercedes           14             (5th)
  6. Sauber                12             (4th)
  7. Williams            6              (7th)
  8. Force India        5              (8th)
  9. Toro Rosso         1              (9th)

Bahrain may be a difficult circuit to overtake at but Lotus did fantastically well over the weekend rising from 6th to 3rd after Kimi Raikkonen and Romain Grosjean both picked up podium finishes.
