D he evaluation of the grades for each individual race was in this one Formula 1 season is particularly exciting. Hardly any driver came through the year without errors. Even at the top, Vettel, Alonso & Co. have done a lot of lapses.
Countable things for the backbenchers
The fight in midfield was also particularly exciting. Some pilots have always been able to stand out with brilliant performances. Nico Hülkenberg's pole position, for example, was not reflected in World Championship points, but in a good grade for the race weekend. Kamui Kobayashi drove his way to the hearts of fans in Japan with numerous overtaking maneuvers and to the top of our grading scale.
Even in the back of the field there is finally something countable through our grades. In the championship standings, all drivers of the new teams remained without points. Our driver's certificate tells you who was really the fastest backbencher.
Where does Schumacher end up?
We mustn't forget Michael Schumacher. The comebacker had to take a lot of criticism. The duel against team-mate Rosberg lost. Far from their own world championship goals. But where does the record champion end up on average for all races? At the end of the day, Schumi was able to set a few highlights.
In our large photo show, we once again show the best pictures of the year with the average ratings of all drivers. The drivers who did not take part in all Grand Prix races are added at the end outside of the ranking.
