Two races into the new season.
What changed? Nothing to be honest. Mercedes still churn out wins at their discretion. Ferrari show promise but fail to deliver when it matters the most. Daniel Ricciardo’s woes are nowhere close to be resolved. It is always only one car for Red Bull to race with.
BAHRAIN GRAND PRIX RESULT:
A new metric will be used to rank the drivers in terms of their performance during the Race Weekend. The metric will include the performances in the free practice sessions, qualifying sessions and main race. Of course, the race gets the weightage higher than free practice and qualifying for obvious reasons.
Here are Top 10 drivers in terms of Performance Rating so far (includes Australian and Bahrain Grand Prix):
#10: ALEXANDER ALBON [SCUDERIA TORO ROSSO HONDA]: Rating Value- 14
#9: DANIIL KVYAT [SCUDERIA TORO ROSSO HONDA]: Rating Value- 15
#8: KEVIN MAGNUSSEN [HAAS FERRARI]: Rating Value- 22
#7: KIMI RAIKKONEN [ALFA ROMEO RACING FERRARI]: Rating Value- 24
#6: LANDO NORRIS [MCLAREN RENAULT]: Rating Value- 25
#5: MAX VERSTAPPEN [RED BULL RACING HONDA]: Rating Value- 40
#4: SEBASTIAN VETTEL [FERRARI]: Rating Value- 44
#3: CHARLES LECLERC [FERRARI]: Rating Value- 46
#2: LEWIS HAMILTON [MERCEDES]: Rating Value- 70
#1: VALTTERI BOTTAS [MERCEDES]: Rating Value- 72
So, the title favorites Lewis Hamilton and Sebastian Vettel were outperformed by their team mate rivals. Mercedes are run away winners so far even though Ferrari looks to put on some fight. Both the Toro Rosso’s make it to Top 10 with Lando Norris punching above the weight for McLaren.
