(Motorsport-Total.com) – That would seem familiar to Carlos Sainz: Although he got a 1 after Sochi for the second time in a row by the editors and expert Marc Surer, it was enough for the McLaren driver not in Suzuka for the day's victory. Just like two weeks ago, the polling users rated a Mercedes pilot better.
And that's Valtteri Bottas this week, who breaks the day's victory in our traditional grading. He also gets the best marks from Surer and the editors for his convincing victory, with the readers he scored slightly better than Sainz at 1.6 compared to 1.8
Bottas was for Surer “clearly the Boss at home Mercedes this weekend “and thus also much better than Lewis Hamilton, who only landed in seventh place – thanks to a three of the experts. The placement of Sainz is consistent for Surer: “He is so consistent fast in the last race that he deserves a 1,” he praises.
Third place goes to Sebastian Vettel, as in Sochi but already has a clear gap to the two leaders. With an average score of 2.1, it is already far from Bottas (1.2) and Sainz (1.3). Reason should be for many of the failed originates, actually his only mistake after a strong qualification and a good race.
Also Daniel Ricciardo (fourth place) shows for Surer a “strong race”, behind the both cockpit exchangers Pierre Gasly and Alexander Albon, who would have earned “a rapidly 1”.
Robert Kubica (5): The Pole and Williams – that does not fit anymore. The accident after the dispute over the front wing, the necessary chassis change and a hopeless race, in which he is the only driver twice surpassed. Kubica already counts the Classes until his departure. 12 Photo gallery
