Winning the race is not deserving of a bonus point, is it? Does perez deserve to be a star purely because verstappen had a problem? Without verstappen’s problem would perez then lose the star rating? Doesn’t make […]
Agree with this, it’s a thing to get a result with a top car, another with a midfield car, example remember the times in 2017 and 2018 when ferrari, red bull and mercedes used to occasionally start from the back […]
Guess perez pays for a really bad qualifying, you see bottas did even worse but with a bit worse car in quali, and didn’t redeem himself in the race, so he ended up in the strugglers; perez did, so he ended up in the average.
Agree with some of the others that hamilton wasn’t a struggler in baku, he was at monaco and I was disappointed he wasn’t put in there on this site, but consider I’d have rated him a star performer till before […]
Esploratore commented on the post, Perez delivering "exactly what we've been looking for" – Horner 18 hours, 1 minute ago
Yes, well done to perez, I knew he wasn’t like albon or gasly at red bull.
Yes, very few points possible, but 0 seems an exageration, it’s a mercedes with a non-bottas driver we’re talking about, mercedes was the fastest car in the race at imola and the drivers between 10th and 15th […]
I agree with pointing out these numbers and that verstappen has so far been far better overall this year, BUT it’s very arguable that 0 points for hamilton in imola, I believe even without red flag he had some […]
Absolutely, the luck factor can’t be ignored, but I agree with the general comment about replacing bottas: if mercedes find themselves risking both championships, swapping bottas with russel will obviously not […]
Indeed, bottas would need a schumacher 99 + a dominant car.
I’d say innocent until proven guilty, as in given that race russel is a top driver until the opposite is proven.
Cause like it or not in f1 you don’t always get the chance to prove you’re a top driver if the […]

Ahh, ofc, would be useful to know even before 2016 when was the last no-score for 2 title contenders, I know there’s spa 1998 with hakkinen and schumacher, but that’s so far back, there could be more recent […]

Interesting question, mmmm, we need to go back to 2018 at least cause there wasn’t a title contention after that, in 2018 hamilton had a mechanical problem in austria but vettel scored, don’t think there’s more, […]

Crazy difference, also 4 red flags this qualifying wasn’t a joke!

As far as I see it, bottas would be leading this stat, 25 points lost = ahead of vettel.
Esploratore commented on the post, Hamilton records his worst finish for 12 years with 15th place 20 hours, 48 minutes ago
Still an interesting stat.
It’s not luck, verstappen had a problem, that’s the bad luck in the first place.
Yes, not sure if you noticed how happy hamilton was of 2nd place on the grid, you never used to see stuff like that any more, always used to easy poles.
Hamilton was NOT on his way to win in baku, but 3rd place, not to say he didn’t drive well until that point, but verstappen’s problem is NOT hamilton’s merit, the place gained on perez was also consequence of that.
