  1. If Leclerc gets penalised Albon might get ahead of Sainz.

    1. In that case Albon 94, Sainz 97. He´s not gonna get ahead of him.

      1. So Vettel helped Sainz in getting best of rest ahead of 2 RBR drivers.

        1. Even if Vettel didn´t pass Albon for fifth and Leclerc got eventually disqualified (or only penalised), Sainz would still finish on top. In case they both had the same amount of points, Sainz finished third in Brazil. There´s no scenario where Albon would get in front.

          1. So I miscalculated, I thought Albon needed 4th and Sainz 10th or lower for Albon to secure 6th place. Still given the fact that Albon got less races than Gasly and he didnt get preseason testing in car it is really impressive how quickly he has gotten the grasp of RBR.

  2. Albon would’ve finished P6 without what happened in Brazil on the penultimate lap, but oh well, next season he’s definitely going to finish at least 6th presuming he’d get to see out the season in the Red Bull.

  3. Sainz got that sixth in the Drivers on the last lap, but instead, we were watching Hamilton cruising to victory. Also Perez´s move on Norris missed. This year was a freaking joke from the TV producers.

    1. Absolutely. I watched recently the TV transmission at Brasil GP from 1993, cameras where spot on, there was picture in picture on screen, and showing the battles rightly… 1993… all analog for 4:3 screens. This TV production is a joke run by people that doesn’t seem to know what to do with the rich resources they have.

      1. Or they´ve got instructions whom to give more than enough screen time. I wouldn´t be surprised if the top teams had covered also this area of their dominance.

    2. Agree, there were far too many good battles missed on the screens for fans this year in far too many races @pironitheprovocateur, @jpvalverde85. They could really do with better decision making over what battles to follow, or at least cut to those battles instead of showing us bottas 3-1,6 seconds behind Leclerc in the last 3 laps for example

    3. This is a bugbear of mine too. No matter what is happening elsewhere the director always switches to watch the winner crossing the line. I mean I know that the race winner is important, but usually we know the win is secure and I really don’t need to see it when there is action happening further back.

      We missed Bottas closing on Leclerc with a chance for third, Perez taking 7th from Norris, and both Sainz and Ricciardo passing Hulkenberg for 10th and 11th. It wasn’t exactly an action packed race but we still managed to miss some of the most significant racing.

      1. imho the winner crossing the line from miles out infront is easily a PIP moment. Nice enough for the fans but once you’ve seen it once you’ve seen it a million times.

        It’s like the world feed director genuinely can’t multitask.

  4. Hulk just being Hulk, proof of why he’s out, lost 1 point and 2 positions on last lap, lost the 27% (his number) of the driver of the day. Still unable to get his stuff right even on his last race. Meanwhile Perez getting best of the rest on a dog of a car but a sound strategy and giving some nice fights with the midfield at the end of the race, specially againd Norris.

    1. Ten full seasons in F1, 177 races (I think) and not a podium, this is a record for the ages. Anyway there’s the 2015 victory in Le Mans.

  5. And btw, kinda sad that Norris lost the tenth place in the Drivers Championship on the last lap. Had he kept Pérez behind him, he would have been closing the top 10 in overall standings with 51 points, Perez just one point behind him. But boy´s promising, I´m sure he will do better next season.

  6. If you look at the 4 drivers at either Red Bull or Toro Rosso, Verstappen has more points than the other 3 put together. Not just a little bit more, over 50 more. And this is an unrealistic and unfair way of judging it against verstappen.

    I don’t know if this is just how good Verstappen is or how awful his team mates have been in comparison with him. Or how the car is built around Verstappen which helps him and really does the opposite to his team mate.

    1. Gasly vastly underperformed and Albon is still a rookie. That’s why.
      I doubt Ricciardo would beat Verstappen this year, but i bet he too would score more than 200 points with that car. He did it with lesser ones in ’14 and ’16.

  7. Here are the final standings without Mercedes, Ferrari or Red Bull:
    1 Carlos Sainz 294 – 6 wins
    2 Sergio Perez 244 – 4 wins
    3 Lando Norris 229 – 3 wins
    4 Daniel Ricciardo 208 – 4 wins
    5 Daniil Kvyat 179 – 1 win
    6 Nico Hulkenberg 177 – 0 wins
    7 Kimi Raikkonen 174 – 0 wins
    8 Lance Stroll 139 – 0 wins
    9 Kevin Magnussen 110 – 2 wins
    10 Pierre Gasly 99 – 1 win
    11 Alexander Albon 99 – 0 wins
    12 Antonio Giovinazzi 88 – 0 wins
    13 Romain Grosjean 69 – 0 wins
    14 George Russell 21 – 0 wins
    15 Robert Kubica 9 – 0 wins

    1 McLaren 523 – 9 wins
    2 Renault 385 – 4 wins
    3 Racing Point 383 – 4 wins
    4 Toro Rosso 377 – 2 wins
    5 Alfa Romeo 262 – 0 wins
    6 Haas 179 – 2 wins
    7 Williams 30 – 0 wins

    1. Great stuff

      A bit unfair for Gasly and Albon who have raced about half season each, though

  8. Congratulations to Verstappen for winning third place. By car, he should have been in 5th. Hugely impressive first half, then average by his standards, then came back strong, including impressive overtakes of Hamilton in Brazil and catching Leclerc today.

  9. My 2019 ranking:
    1. Max Verstappen
    2. Charles Leclerc
    3. Lewis Hamilton
    4. Valtteri Bottas

    10. Sebastian Vettel
    11. Alexander Albon
    12. George Russell
    13. Kimi Raikkonen
    13. Pierre Gasly
    15. Daniil Kvyat
    16. Antonio Giovinazzi
    17. Kevin Magnussen
    18. Lance Stroll
    19. Romain Grosjean

    1. Mostly agree, but here is mine:
      1. Max Verstappen
      2. Charles Leclerc
      3. Carlos Sainz Jnr
      4. Sergio Perez
      5. Lando Norris
      6. Lewis Hamilton
      7. Daniel Ricciardo
      8. Kimi Raikkonen

      18. Pierre Gasly
      19. Lance Stroll
      20. Robert Kubica

      1. 1. Hamilton
        2. Verstappen
        3. Bottas
        4. Sainz
        5. Leclerc

        1. I’m even tempted to put Albon in front of Leclerc, he did far less mistakes and supported his team(s) much more than the Monegasque.

          1. Bottas 3, seriously?

      2. Melanos 🤡
