Belgian GP driver ratings

At last for Charles Leclerc.

This was a much-deserved first F1 victory for the youngster and a faultless weekend operation — from his staggering 0.7s advantage in qualifying, to the 44 laps of this race where he built a guide, and then kept his composure when the Mercedes arrived charging.
What made this introduction win even more astonishing was the fact Leclerc missing a close friend in Anthoine Hubert on Saturday, together with the Ferrari driver admitting he was additional concentrated to supply the next day so he would dedicate the race to the 22-year-old and his family.
Lewis Hamilton has been vocal in his praise Leclerc — who should really have had three wins by now — all season and called more»devotion to come» following his landmark win on Sunday, while Sky F1’s Damon Hill predicted the»floodgates» will open.
«He has already established himself faster then Sebastian Vettel,» added Hill of Leclerc, and it’s difficult to argue with that believing he’s out-qualified his or her team-mate in the last six races.

He dropped out on success this season but Lewis Hamilton insisted that he was proud of his weekend and it is simple to see why.
In qualifying, hamilton was, and but for a few more laps he would have overtaken Leclerc of his victories that are unlikely. That might have been quite a feat considering Mercedes boss Toto Wolff claimed this was always going to be»damage limitation» because of Ferrari’s straight-line speed.
The fact Hamilton extended his championship lead got lost because of Leclerc victory, however, the Englishman is now 65 points ahead of Valtteri Bottas, while Max Verstappen, referred to as a rival, is suddenly a whopping 87 points backwards.

A Mercedes contract that was brand new was celebrated by valtteri Bottas and by defeating against Hamilton, he’d have expected to justify the faith of his team. But the weekend really got going to the Finn.
He ended a tenth off Hamilton in qualifying even though his team-mate’s P3 crush and, although his group frequently attempted to push him on and gee him up in the race, even Bottas was never really in contention for the two positions and ended 12s off turning his engine late on.
Bottas has not finished since the Austrian GP before Hamilton, although his win drought stretches back into around four of the season in Azerbaijan. He wants to find his mojo.
Rating from ten: 7.5
This is a protracted one for Sebastian Vettel. Since then agonising race-losing punishment in Canada in June, Vettel has two podium finishes and has neglected to out-qualify Leclerc.
Despite a fretting 0.7s deficit in qualifying, Vettel was well-placed for the race, second in the grid and with the benefit of slipstream, however, a poor start enabled Hamilton through and, though he soon passed the Mercedes, his lack of speed meant Ferrari pitted him . That meant another stop was had by him that dropped him — with an excess bonus point.
Vettel does deserve credit, however, because of his role in securing Leclerc the success. When minding team requests using a minimum amount of fuss, first he transferred out of his team-mate’s way, and he held up Hamilton to get a few laps before pitting. That may well have been crucial.

Red Bull couldn’t have asked for more from Alex Albon on his own debut. Among those battles Pierre Gasly needed was making his way however, into the things on softs, Albon rallied despite having a catchy opening stint about mediums — .
His passes on Sergio Perez and Daniel Ricciardo, in particular fearlessness we watched.
A promising start indeed.
Rating from ten: 9
Sergio Perez is back in the points after a career-long eight-race drought and it’s no real surprise to see him go back to the top 10 in Belgium, where he has three finishes. Before being handed by Albon on the last lap he was close to a fourth Sunday.
«I went into attack mode with lots of overtaking,» said Perez of the race after losing a few areas during the first-lap chaos.
Promisingly for Racing Point, it appears like their aerodynamic overhaul was after securing only their second points finish of their season effective.
Rating from ten: 8.5
Daniil Kvyat will be forgiven for feeling rather downbeat after being overlooked for a Red Bull advertising after the team opted for Albon, who the Russian out-qualified and out-scored over their 12 races . Charge to Kvyat, though, for another strong functionality that is race-day.
Like Albon, Kvyat was pressured into a back-of-the-grid (well, 19th thanks to other penalties) followed and start his former team-mate onto the mediums. He gave him the tender tyre in the race’s conclusion and, although passed by Albon, he gained six locations after that stop — also becoming before Gasly.
The battle involving Kvyat, Albon and Gasly is one to look out for over the season eight races, together with Red Bull eager to pick one of them as the permanent team-mate of Max Verstappen from 2020 onwards.

Nico Hulkenberg was among the few motorists that left a two-stop race job on Sunday, but the German confessed that he was lucky to score some points. He entered on the top 10 with just two laps and had been out-paced by Renault team-mate Ricciardo to get most of the weekend.
Following a couple of days, however, with Esteban Ocon affirmed as Hulk’s replacement for following year, he’ll certainly take the things .

«We couldn’t be prouder of this guy, this week end,» read a tweet from Honda about Monday after Pierre Gasly’s very first race back together using Toro Rosso. Ninth place was extremely impressive, considering the conditions. Was Gasly feeling the psychological strain following Red Bull’s summertime axing, but he had to come to terms with the death of his friend Hubert.
«I have developed this man. I hurried in karting with Charles and Anthoine because 2005,» said an emotional Gasly after the race. «Afterward we lived in the exact apartment for five decades. We went at exactly the classroom, to the school. I have known this guy so long and we shared a lot of minutes on track, and off course, particularly.»
Gasly warrants his points and was unlucky to lose places in the final phases as he toiled on worn medium tyres, but battled in defence and attack throughout the race.

He made Q2, and made up six places in the race although qualifying was constantly likely to become half-hearted from Lance Stroll due to his grid penalty. He felt he could have gained much more.
«It was somewhat frustrating since I spent the whole race stuck in trafficbehind cars on different strategies,» said the Canadian. «It was tough to find clean air and actually push .»
He has dropped two points in the drivers’ standings behind Perez.

Lando Norris may have been lucky to gain six places after Turn One, however his consistent drive then — running fifth for 43 laps — meant he deserved the best result of his profession. An engine failure with 1 lap remaining cruelly denied him. No wonder his wireless message was full of expletives.

Another dreadful race day for Haas and Kevin Magnussen. The Dane qualified 10th, began seventh, and stayed in that position. But Magnussen’s Sunday began to fall apart as he lost six locations. He never recovered after that. As he told Sky F1’s Martin Brundle prior to the race, so it is not that Haas are using their tyres but they are not using them at all. A puzzle.

As, later being out-qualified by Magnussen, he discovered himself up until his very first stop on Lap 15, it was going better for Romain Grosjean. After that, that the Frenchman believed he was aggressive. But that Haas simply seems to get rid of the pace vanished in the second half of the race so much so he asked his team of Grosjean along with all downforce in visitors. «I’m very angry,» said Grosjean after the race.

Fourteenth does not sound like a return that is wonderful, however Daniel Ricciardo had a weekend. He qualified up in sixth for Renault and, even though a grid penalty, would have been convinced of securing things. But his Renault subsequently spent the rest of the race and was hit from behind into Turn One. Although he’d that limping car, Ricciardo was at the top 10 with under 10 laps. Unlucky.
Rating from ten: 7.5
George Russell began a career-high 14th in Spa but was never very likely to remain there for long, with Williams expecting this to be among their most troublesome weekends. Russell did finish well before Robert Kubica.
