F1 rankings Brazilian GP

2013-11-29 12:26
The End, the season is done, gone, consigned to history.  In the end Sebastian Vettel and Red Bull made it look quite easy but how much of it was driver and how much was car?

If you look at the F1 Rankings it’s both actually, more so driver this year than car I would say because when a driver reaches a 5.50 Star rating in F1, you have to stand back and respect the greatness of the achievement.

Red Bull was, without doubt, the best team and car on the grid this year but in order for me to fall off my chair with amazement a team needs a Race Index of 9000 or more.  Only then will I go nutty about the car over the driver.

Here is the 2013 F1 season represented in numbers.
