Autosport (UK) Driver Ratings #4 - Imola

Post by Brian_W_Lawre.. » Fri, 20 Apr 2001 19:11:36


Last season the UK weekly motorsport magazine Autosport (www.autosport.com)
began to publish a driver rating after each race. They don't elaborate on
how they arrive at the ratings, or who makes them. However, it soon became
obvious that the rating MUST take practice and qualifying into account -
it's not just the race itself.

These were their ratings for Imola (points out of 10):

10  Ralf
 9  Kimi
 8  DC, Fisi, Trulli, Panis, Alonso
 7  RB, MH, HHF, Heidfeld, Irvine
 6  MS, JPM, Button, JV, Jos, Bernoldi, Burti, Alesi
 5  Marques
 4  Mazzacane

The season to date:

               AUS MAS BRA SMR  Tot  Avg.
=========================================
 1 Coulthard     9   8   9   8  34  8.50
 2 M Schumacher  9  10   7   6  32  8.00
   R Schumacher  7   7   8  10  32  8.00
 4 R?ikk?nen     9   6   7   9  31  7.75
 5 Montoya       7   7  10   6  30  7.50
   Frentzen      7   8   8   7  30  7.50
   Panis         8   6   8   8  30  7.50
 8 Heidfeld      8   6   8   7  29  7.25
 9 H?kkinen      8   6   7   7  28  7.00
   Trulli        7   6   7   8  28  7.00
11 Alonso        7   5   7   8  27  6.75
   Fisichella    6   5   8   8  27  6.75
13 Barrichello   5   8   5   7  25  6.25
14 Verstappen    5   9   4   6  24  6.00
   Villeneuve    6   6   6   6  24  6.00
   Button        6   6   6   6  24  6.00
   Burti         6   6   6   6  24  6.00
   Alesi         5   6   7   6  24  6.00
19 Irvine        6   5   5   7  23  5.75
20 Bernoldi      3   5   6   6  20  5.00
21 Marques       4   5   5   5  19  4.75
22 Mazzacane     4   5   5   4  18  4.50

Depends who you listen to. I think Autosport would be a bit reluctant to
give high ratings to either of them, for various reasons.

Pretty much (although you haven't given ratings for Imola, no?). One person
gave him 8 for Imola (although the same person also gave Ralf just 1, so I
don't know how much we can rely on his ratings...)

Autosport has them 1st and 4th, we'ge got them 3rd and 7th!

(BTW, I think Kimi should be #1, but then again, I'm on *** ;-)

why?

I usually wait a few days until I form an opinion...

Ah, it's that way round! In that case, it'll be because generally I'd say
we're not aware of how well Kimi's actually doing. And as for the DC thing,
I'd guess "personal" reasons lead to people giving him lower-than-deserved
ratings.

Kimi's pretty kick-ass, IMO. I hope he gets a few more good races.

Quote:
> > for various reasons.

If DC hadn't been top, I would have said that Autosport didn't want to give
him a higher rating for fear that they'd be accused of nationalistic bias.
If KR had been lower in Autosport, then I'd say it would be because they
don't want to hype him up too much for fear that he'll become really bad,
and then they wouldn't look so good.

But as it's the other way round, then well done Autosport! :-)

I technically should count it, although he did give weird ratings to all the
drivers (eg 10 to MS, 1 to both DC and RS, 3 to Raikkonen), so I'm thinking
of not counting it... Ralf's got several 9's and 10's, so his overall
average is still about 9.
