F1 Driver Ratings: Australia 2018

Over the course of the 2018 Formula One season, I will be giving my ratings on the drivers’ performances from the latest F1 weekend. This will be based on their qualifying and race performance. I will score them from 1-10 with 1 being an atrocious, dire weekend which will make headlines for the wrong reasons and 10 will be a perfect weekend were a driver really outperforms the car and shines brightly.

The Australian Grand Prix was the first race of the year and it was won by Sebastien Vettel in dramatic circumstances. Lewis Hamilton gave it every thing to win but came up short and finished 2nd whilst Kimi Raikkonen withstood the pressure from home boy, Daniel Ricciardo, to finish 3d.

The order of the drivers you see here is the order if the race results.

2018 Australian Grand Prix – Melbourne

Sebastian Vettel: 7/10

Lewis Hamilton: 8.5/10

Kimi Raikkonen: 8/10

Daniel Ricciardo: 7.5/10

Fernando Alonso: 8/10

Max Verstappen: 5.5/10

Nico Hulkenberg: 7.5/10

Valtteri Bottas: 3.5/10

Stoffel Vandoorne: 7/10

Carlos Sainz: 6.5/10

Sergio Perez: 7/10

Esteban Ocon: 5/10

Charles Leclerc: 6.5/10

Lance Stroll: 5/10

Brendon Hartley: 5.5/10

RETIRED

Romain Grosjean: 8/10

Kevin Magnussen: 9/10

Pierre Gasly: 5/10

Marcus Ericsson: 7/10

Sergey Sirotkin: 3.5/10

This week, the highest rating went to Kevin Magnussen, a driver that failed to finish the race, while Valtteri Bottas and Sergey Sirotkin share the dishonour of the lowest score from Melbourne.

Disagree or agree with these ratings as much as you want! Laugh if you really want to…
