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

The Belgian Grand Prix was yet another action-packed instalment of the 2014 Formula One season.

Remember when people were saying "this new Formula One" was rubbish?

Daniel Ricciardo powered to an unexpected victory at a circuit which wasn't expected to suit his RB10, but he needed a little help along the way.

Nico Rosberg provided it. He first took out his team-mate Lewis Hamilton and lost time with a long pit stop to replace his nose.

He then badly flat-spotted his tyres and cost himself more time. This second error would prove crucialhe finished just 3.3 seconds behind Ricciardo at the end.

Valtteri Bottas continued to impress and claimed his fourth podium of the season, while Kimi Raikkonen put in a beautiful drive to finish fourth.

 

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