Re: Rank the Drivers Midseason Performance

I'm normally close with these polls, big surprise to not see Max leading and being a clear leader at that, I do feel Norris is being a little overrated due to how badly Ricciardo is performing. He's third in the championship in arguably the 3rd/4th best car at times. And a car that is miles behind ...

Verstappen should probably have 2 more poles to his name and isn't blameless for the Silverstone incident. Aside from failing to take pole in Imola when it was on the cards, the main under-...

With about half car missing, it's commendable Max could finish in 9th. This is why he could barely overtake due to missed out downforce.
