Mark Webber: Grade 9/10
D he Australian suffered a clear defeat against Vettel in training. It was foreseeable that he would lose the start against Alonso on the worse track. After that, Webber didn't do anything wrong. He managed Vettel's gift perfectly.
Fernando Alonso: Grade 9/10
More was not possible. Red Bull drove in a league of its own. In the second championship, Alonso was clearly the fastest man. His class shows that he was able to assert himself for 30 laps without unfair tricks in front of the much faster Vettel.
Sebastian Vettel: Grade 4/10
There is a grade for pole position 10. The start and the first turn until the tire change were also flawless. The error with the large distance to Webber when restarting must not happen, however. Not if you are as superior as Vettel demonstrated this weekend.
Felipe Massa: Grade 6/10
The Brazilian saw no country against Alonso. Not even on the super-soft tires that usually put him on par with Alonso. It was a lackluster fourth place and no revenge for Hockenheim.
Vitaly Petrov: Grade 9/10
For the first time this season, Petrov drove flawlessly and quickly. For the first time he defeated teammate Robert Kubica. If he can keep this form, there might still be a place for him in Formula 1 after all.
Nico Hülkenberg: Grade 8/10
Beat Barrichello in training, consistently in the top ten in the race. The German shows strongly rising form. The Renault were out of reach, but De La Rosa, Button and Kobayashi had Hülkenberg under control.
Pedro de la Rosa: Grade 8/10
Finally points for De la Rosa. Although the Hungaroring is not the ideal playground for the Sauber, the Spaniard certainly qualified for the top ten. In the race, after a mediocre first lap, he made the most of the gifts from his opponents, who eliminated themselves in the pit lane.
Jenson Button: Grade 4/10
The world champion was in Budapest at no time a candidate for the top ranks. As in Silverstone, balance problems prevented a top ten entry. In the end, he had to be happy with eighth place on race Sunday.
Kamui Kobayashi: Grade 7/10
The team got stuck in the first knockout round in training. The technicians gave the Japanese two hard tires. ThatKobayashi ignores the weighing procedure, it is his mistake that banishes him to the back row. His starting lap, however, was terrific. He won seven starting positions.
Rubens Barrichello: Grade 7/10
After strong performances in training, he had calculated himself to be more than 12th on the grid. His start on hard tires was a risk that didn't pay off. His overtaking maneuver on Michael Schumacher was terrific. The old man has extended his claws.
Michael Schumacher: Grade 1/10
The old master's worst weekend. In training he chooses the wrong setup and loses eight tenths on Rosberg. In the race he rode well in tenth place until Barrichello appears in the rearview mirror. Sorry, but the way he pushed the Williams driver into the wall at 290 km /h was an attack.
Sebastien Buemi: Grade 5/10
Despite the modified Toro Rosso was there no progress. The Swiss kept team-mate Alguersuari in check again during training, but remained largely invisible in the race after a weak start.
Vitantonio Liuzzi: Grade 5/10
The Italian triggered the safety car phase, which caused so much turbulence. The lost front wing parts were the result of a collision with Schumacher on the starting lap. After the nose change, Liuzzi drove properly. He was faster than Buemi, but couldn't get past.
Heikki Kovalainen: Grade 6/10
The Finn beat his team-mate Trulli in training and was 14th best of the race League of New Teams. The Hungary winner from 2008 did what is currently possible with a Lotus.
Jarno Trulli: Grade 5/10
Trulli was in training at 0.079 and after 70 laps in Race 0.888 seconds worse than Kovalainen. This shows that the two Lotus drivers got the most out of their cars. There is one point deduction for the two defeats against Kovalainen.
Timo Glock: Grade 6/10
For his 18th place on the grid, there should be a grade of ten. More is not possible with a Virgin. Glock was three to four tenths faster than his car and outpaced both Lotus in one blow. The race showed the real picture. The Lotus is still a tad ahead of the Virgin.
Bruno Senna: Grade 5/10
With an HRT is no longer possible. 22nd place in training, 17th place in the race. A flawless ride, that's all you can expect. In the beginning, Senna was ahead of Glock, but could not defend the position for long.
Lucas di Grassi: Grade 4/10
If Glock is serious and has a weekend without problems, sees Di Grassi against the teammate no country. Di Grassi made the best impression on the starting lap when the 21st of the training session won a position. At the finish he was one lap behind Glock. An additional pit stop due to a tire problem was to blame for the large deficit.
Sakon Yamamoto: Grade 2/10
It was missing in practiceJapanese only a tenth on senna. That speaks for an increase. The fastest race lap, however, was 1.2 seconds above the Brazilian’s record. Yamamoto had to test new setups in the race. You can't use him for much more.
Lewis Hamilton: Grade 8/10
Hamilton was once again on the best path to defend his championship lead despite the ailing car. A gearbox damage rudely pulled him out of fourth place. Until then it was a strong performance. Teammate Button never had a chance in the team duel.
Robert Kubica: Grade 6/10
The Pole, who is otherwise strong on tight courses, remained pale. Problems with the differential slowed him down during training. In the race he was always behind Petrov. Kubica can't do anything for the crash with Sutil in the pit lane. His husband was to blame for the lollipop.
Nico Rosberg: Grade 6/10
Starting position six is entirely up to the driver. The car wasn't worth this training rank. In the initial phase, Rosberg was among the points. He can't help but not tighten his right rear wheel during the pit stop.
Adrian Sutil: Grade 6/10
Sutil's Force India was out of shape. The driver does. The crash with Kubica in the pit lane was caused by Renault. They sent the Pole out when Sutil turned into his parking position. Points would have been difficult even without the accident.
Jaime Alguersuari: Grade 4/10
The excuse for the unknown racetrack no longer counts. Alguersuari made his debut at the Hungaroring a year ago, but he still had to let Buemi beat him in training. The race ended after one lap due to engine failure.
