Yesterday we went from 10-6 now it’s time to find out who finished top five in our ABCDEF1 grades from the season.

For those unaware of ABCDEF1, it’s where we rate each driver after the race with A* being the highest grade, followed by A, B, C, D, E and finally F. Thanks to one of our followers ‘Tunefix2,’ we’ve got ourselves a championship table and here we look at the drivers from 5th to 1st.

Points system: 

A* 6 Points A 5 Points B 4 Points C 3 Points D 2 Points E 1 Point F 0 Points

5. Charles Leclerc – 92 points

Best: A* (Spain and Silverstone) Worst: D (France)

Notes: He got a C in Monaco because we all disagreed on his quali crash (France – finished 16th)

=3. Carlos Sainz – 95 points 

Best: A* (Monaco, Turkey, Abu Dhabi) Worst: C (x5)

Notes: Worst grade all season was a C, no bad races.

=3. Lando Norris – 95 points 

Best: A* (Imola, Monaco, Austria Monza) Worst: D (Belgium)

Notes: He didn’t get an A Grade again after Russia. Lando had almost all his really good grades at the start of the year. Carlos Sainz was the opposite. 

Best: A* (Imola [3rd], Monaco [3rd], Austria [3rd], Monza [2nd] – his 4 podiums) Worst: D (Belgium – mistake in qualifying)

2. Lewis Hamilton – 103 points

Best: A* (x6) Worst: D (Monaco and Baku)

Notes: Big space between A*s; 3 of the first 4 races and 3 of the last 4 races. No A* in the middle of the season. 

1. Max Verstappen – 118 points

Best: A* (x12) Worst: C (Monza and Saudi Arabia)

Notes: 5 A* Grades in a row between Monaco and Austria. Extremely close to averaging out as an A* all season.  12 A*s Grades, 8 A Grades, 0 B grades, 2 C Grades.
