Formula 1's Driver Power Rankings After 2014 Hungarian Grand Prix

Formula One's 2014 season continues to go from strength to strength. The Hungarian Grand Prix was one of the best races in recent memoryand at a circuit renown for producing mediocre races.

At the heart of all great races are great drives.

Lewis Hamilton's blast from last to third will go down as one of his finest races. Fernando Alonso also put in a stellar performance, dragging his Ferrari around the final few laps on tyres which were shot to pieces to claim a fine second.

But it was Daniel Ricciardo who ended the day in the spotlight. The Australian had never finished higher than seventh before the start of the year; now, he has two race wins to his name.

There were good and bad performances all the way through the order.

Having looked at them, here are my latest set of driver power rankings.

 

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 the German Grand Prix, are here. All position changes are relative to the positions in that article.
