Speed Trap Standings, post Monaco 12

29 May

Top speed isn’t something that makes you win in Monaco but it was still possible for the drivers to get points in the speed trap standings. It takes place in FP3 and quite simply you get points for being the fastest through the speed trap. Fastest takes home 15 points, 2nd gets 12, 3rd 9, 4th 6 and 5th gets 3. Here are the drivers standings:

  1. Sergio Perez                 Sauber                 42              (previous standing 1st)
  2. Kimi Raikkonen         Lotus                   42              (2nd)
  3. Lewis Hamilton         McLaren             27              (5th)
  4. Romain Grosjean      Lotus                    27              (3rd)
  5. Kamui Kobayashi      Sauber                 21               (4th)
  6. Heikki Kovalainen    Caterham           21               (9th)
  7. Daniel Ricciardo        Toro Rosso        15              (6th)
  8. Jean-Eric Vergne       Toro Rosso        15              (7th)
  9. Nico Rosberg               Mercedes           12              (8th)
  10. Jenson Button             McLaren           12               (-)
  11. Michael Schumacher Mercedes           9                (10th)
  12. Nico Hulkenburg        Force India       9                (11th)
  13. Paul Di Resta               Force India       6                (12th)
  14. Vitaly Petrov                 Caterham          6                (-)
  15. Sebastian Vettel           Red Bull            3                (-)

Despite neither of them picking up points Sergio Perez and Kimi Raikkonen are still equal at the top. Heikki Kovalainen did a great job in the Caterham picking up 9 points to move up to 6th.

Constructors standings:

  1. Lotus                       69            (1st)
  2. Sauber                     63            (2nd)
  3. McLaren                 39            (6th)
  4. Toro Rosso            30             (3rd)
  5. Caterham               27             (7th)
  6. Mercedes                21             (4th)
  7. Force India            15             (5th)
  8. Red Bull                   3              (-)

Current world champions Red Bull picked up their first points this weekend, whilst for Ferrari points are still elusive. This is surprising as last year Ferrari were one of the better teams in the speed trap. Caterham are the big surprise , they currently stand 5th which is a very strong score for such a small team.
