2020 Austrian Grand Prix - Driver ratings
Three drivers score top marks in the return of Motorsport.com's driver ratings, but one driver needing a big season to stay on the Formula 1 grid had a horror-show.
Bottas executed a brilliant race performance to take the win but misses out on a perfect score because of his Q3 error. We must take him at his word that he was managing the gap to Hamilton before the first safety car, but the qualifying mistake meant he left “time on the table” and sparked a chain reaction of woe for Mercedes.
Leclerc admitted his slow start to the weekend was because he wasn’t driving at his best in Friday practice. He corrected this in qualifying, beating Sainz’s McLaren, which looks to be on the same pace level as the Ferrari. Didn’t make a mistake in the race, capping his performance with his daring pass on Perez to seal a near-unimaginable podium.
