Spanish GP – Driver rankings
May 9, 2010 4 Comments
Rankings for the first race weekend of 2010. Very different race at the end from the script originally expected.
Favorites like Jules Bianchi and Christian Vietoris failed to impress this weekend, while rookies suck as Charles Pic and Fabio Leimer were protagonists, winning a race each. Strong season opening results from Dani Clos, Giacomo Ricci and Luiz Razia, while Pastor Maldonado seemed to be struggling with his setup all weekend long. Apart from the race winners, the clear standout this weekend was Sam Bird, putting in 2 impressive drives. Seems like he has the pace and he was clearly above his teammate in race pace during the two races.
Rookie Oliver Turvey was also quick at Barcelona, much faster and convincing than Asia champ Valsecchi, who seemed off during the event. Finally, great first race from Sergio Perez, his weekend marred by a ridiculous behavior on Sunday as he sprayed the track with his blown Mecachrome’s oil.
