Formula One's Driver Power Rankings After 2014 Austrian Grand Prix
Darko Bandic/Associated Press

The 2014 Formula One Austrian Grand Prix saw several magnificent drives.

Sergio Perez used the alternative strategy to slice through the field, coming from 15th on the grid to finish a strong sixth in the race.

Fernando Alonso's Sunday was a little less spectacular, but no less impressive. He brought his underpowered Ferrari home in fifth, less than 20 seconds behind the race-winning Mercedes of Nico Rosberg.

Valtteri Bottas scored his first podium, Daniil Kvyat bounced back and Rosberg out-scored Lewis Hamilton for the third race in a row.

On the other side of the coin, Sebastian Vettel had another stinker and Nico Hulkenberg will be hoping for a better showing at Silverstone.

Here are my third driver rankings of 2014.


Note on Power Rankings

These rankings should not be confused with the actual championship table.

Rather than looking solely at points, they also take into account race results, qualifying, overall performance of each driver and how they stack up against their team-mates. The relative pace of each driver's car is factored in.

Only performance at the last six races is considered.

The previous rankings, created after Canada, are here. All position changes are relative to the positions in that article.
