F1 Rankings – after 5 in 2011

The last time I did one of these with three to go in 2010 Vettel looked out of it. Since that time he has been absolutely dominant. It is only fitting therefore for him to go top of the leaderboard.

1 Sebastien Vettel +2
2 Lewis Hamilton +3
3 Fernando Alonso -1
4 Jenson Button +4
5 Nico Rosberg +2
6 Kamui Kobayashi /
7 Heikki Kovaleinen +9
8 Mark Webber -4
9 Vitaly Petrov +5
10 Nick Heidfeld +10
11 Sergio Perez NE
12 Felipe Massa -3
13 Paul Di Resta NE
14 Michael Schumacher +7
15 Sebastien Buemi +4
16 Adrian Sutil -4
17 Timo Glock /
18 Rubens Barrichello -8
19 Jaime Alguersuari -6
20 Jarno Trulli -5
21 Tonio Liuzzi +4
22 Jerome D’Ambrosio NE
23 Pastor Maldonado NE
24 Narain Kathikeyan NE

Down the bottom Maldonado and Karthikeyan are to me wastes of space. D’Ambrosio hasn’t really made an impression so far. Elsewhere I think Barrichello is now over the hill and it will be his last season and Schumacher gained a few places solely based on last weekend’s Spanish GP.

Heres to the death of DRS (please)
