A* – Vettel – Drove a masterful race to remind us just why he is a quadruple world champion
A – Ricciardo – Bought Red Bull a much needed podium to highlight where exactly they could be with a competitive engine
A-Verstappen- Incredible drive from last place to take eighth at the flag, his stock keeps rising
A – Sainz – Assured drive to seal a valuable haul of points for Torro Rosso
A – Kyvat – Unfortunate to lose out during the VSC, strong qualifying and practice results ensure Kyvat came out of the weekend with his reputation very much intact.
A – Perez – Great move on Grosjean, and collected more valuable points for Force India in the race for fifth in the constructors, great form of late.
B+ – Rossi – Flew silently under the radar but finished ahead of his more experienced teammate Stevens, after crashing badly on Friday. A solid debut for Manor’s new boy, especially with no team radio!
B+ – Bottas – A quiet even in Singapore for Bottas, but did well to rise to take fifth by the end at a circuit which clearly doesn’t favour Williams.
B – Raikkonen – Important podium for Kimi, good to see him back but was outclassed by Vettel all weekend
B – Rosberg – Quiet race, mystified by Merc’s loss of pace but struggled to match Hamilton in the early stages
B – Hamilton – Unfortunate retirement, did well to keep pace at the start where Rosberg struggled
B – Grosjean – Walloped Maldonado again in qualifying and was going strongly in an underdeveloped Lotus before his retirement.
B- Alonso – DIfficult to judge in an uncompetitive McLaren, another DNF on their strongest weekend to score points, credit for getting up into the top ten.
B-Button- Similar to Alonso, unfortunate to have his race ruined by the “mental” Maldonado.
B – Nasr – Quiet race and a mature solid drive to a valuable point for Sauber
C – Massa – Unfortunate collision with Hulkenberg after a strong weekend at Monza, like Bottas, will expect to be back challenging for podiums come Suzuka.
C – Ericsson – Out qualified and out raced by his teammate after an impressive summer.
C – Stevens – Out raced by Rossi on his debut for the team.
C – Hulkenberg – Penalised (maybe unfairly) for his race ending crash with Massa, was going well up until then.
D – Maldonado – Nothing to say here apart from “Mental”. Lotus must be desperate for money.
