Re: Rank the Drivers Midseason Performance

Looking at last years rankings Perez was at #5 and Bottas was at #10, put Perez in a top car and then he drops down to #12 one place below Bottas. https://forum.planetf1.com/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=16165 That’s what I call “Verstappen tax” :) Gasly is currently rated as a top 5 driver of the season on ...

Mid-season driver rankings

Since we are at the midway point of the season, and we have a four week summer break, it is time for another mid-season driver ranking. This ranking is based solely on what the driver have done in the first eleven races so far. I would also appreciate it if one of the mods could add one of those "ra...
