  • These "few mistakes" by Leclerc are a good reason to see him on the other end of the Ranking. Like Vettel once mentioned if not everybody plays babysitter for him he would crash every race.

  • You're forgetting that at the Turkish GP, they adjusted Max's wing opposite directions and completely jacked up the balance. So even there (although it wasn't his best race) there were mitigating circumstances

  • My Top 5 = 1. Lewis Hamilton, 2. Max Verstappen, 3 Daniel Riccardo, 4. Sergio Perez 5. Carlos Sainz. Taking in to account the speed of car and calibre of their 2nd driver (and how much assistance that provides these drivers)

    David ColiDavid Coli3 månader sedan
  • Great top 5! Lewis & Max are in a different league, but they didn't face the never-ending adversities that Perez had in 2020. A fraction of these obstacles (Covid, contract termination, pit strategy blunders, punted to last place) would put other F1 drivers into a negative tailspin, but Sergio rode it with his head high and just performed like a legend; impressing everyone race after race. All season he gave epic drives which made us think, how much better can Checo possibly do? Then he passes everyone from last place to 1st at Sakhir, blowing us all away. Phenominal driver, 2020 was the year of this Legend.

  • Perez 1...joke. Ahead of LeClerc....nope. Max clearly 2. Wasn't Hulk the STAR in Perez's car when he was off having never driven the car, not driven an F1 car for quite a while and with pretty much zero time to acclimatise?? Maybe the car is a pretty good car...or very good?

  • And for Perez half of the time he was given older parts or older chassis or tired engines, basically scraps. I'll admit he was just a regular midfielder for me before but this year was solid. EDIT: If he can be anywhere close to VER next year (It will be a different car philosophy for him so that's effectively a disadvantage) it will be a massive slap in the face to Red Bull driver programs and their permanent fruitless chase for the next young golden goose and talent waste

    • @Prisoner Monkeys Obviously you don't watch F1 very much. The RP car was phenomenally quick which is why, at the start of the season, commentators and media were talking about a Mercedes/RP first and second on the constructors championship. In what way was the car that was directly copied from the Mercedes 2019 car a 'shitbox'?

  • I agree with most of your points, except for Perez at nr1: either Max or Hamilton were 100% better than Perez. I think we are dealing with recency bias here (first win, going out of F1 as of time of recording etc). But keep doing your thing!

    • @Sem Venema he also had a crash with Perez in mugello I am not sure if it was some car issue we have to acknowledge quality of teammate is a consideration albon is probably the worst or one of the worst performers in 2020 given his car max definitely had an easy time thrashing him and that’s why Perez took albons seat I feel this rating is fair

  • Agree, except for Gasly in fifth. Had he not had a win - would he still be there? Surely George has done similar things with the Williams, just invisible? Comparing further, Charles is driving an abysmal car (bottom mid-field) to around +0.5 secs/lap more than it seems to be capable of, which hints at the possibility that so many mistakes could have been the result of Charles pushing the Ferrari so much ... in my opinion, in terms of sheer order of magnitude of talent Charles should be there, somewhere in the list (maybe do a top six?) 😁

  • Surprised so many rate Lewis so high, surely Russell stepping in and making a bigger gap to Bottas shows it is all car, Is Lewis a very good driver no doubt, but he is in the car with the biggest gap to the field in decades. If he was to be in the top 5 he should have one every GP he finished and outpaced his team mate for every poll. For mine It comes down in a large way as gap to team mate. 1. Perez, 2. Ricciardo 3. Verstappen, 4 Gasly and =5. LeClerc, Russell

  • I would have thought that George Russell should be on this list, but I also can't think of who he should replace.

  • My top 5: 1. Sergio perez. pretty much a flawless season for him. 2. Max verstappen. He had a bad race in turkey which is why he is second for me, but the rest of the season was pretty much incredible 3. Lewis Hamilton. Hamilton had a solid season like always, but I feel like he missed out on more points than number 1 and 2. He had no competition this year so he had to win the title, but it was still a dominant display from him. (Turkey was simply incredible) 4. Daniel Ricciardo. Great season in arguably the 4th best car. He ended p5 outperforming everyone he should have outperformed and had a solid season in my opinion. 5. Pierre Gasly. Got demoted, but didn’t let that affect him mentally for this season. He did pretty well in qualifying and was usually in a top 10 position in the 6th best car on the grid (i think it’s the 6th best car anyway). The end of the season was good, but not amazing. That’s why he’s slightly below daniel for me

  • I really don’t get the Perez hype - yes he scores in every race he’s finished but he should when driving a 2019 Mercedes! Hulkenberg scored in every race he finished in 2020 too. Perez was out driven by Hulk when they were teammates with Nico finishing ahead more often when both finished - Perez struggled against Ocon and was made to look good up against a very poor Lance Stroll. Stroll even managed to out race and out qualify him (too often in my opinion) it should have been a Perez whitewash similar to Hulkenberg vs Palmer and Alonso vs Stoffel. I honestly predict Perez will continue to underperform on a Saturday and possibly score less points in 2021 than he managed this year.

  • If we would talk about race mess ups, imo Max was 2nd or best. If I remember, he only messed up in Turkey, where Lewis messed up in Austria and Monza, and Checo was beaten by Lance at until Monza. But yeah, they all did well.

  • Sainz and Norris competing so closely without taking each other out and taking McLaren to 3rd. I know this is more comparing against drivers their teammate but that's the sort of team that punches above its weight and is underrepresented in this sort of list. To me it feels like Perez had a car he could have finished higher in which puts him in the consistently above average but not exceptional which should make him a good no2 for VER.

  • In the Turkish GP the RedBull mechanics switched up the aero settings for Verstappen, they tuned it in the opposite way, hence Verstappen lacked dominance in that race. You should definitely take this into account.
