Top marks only for 5 drivers
In order to judge the drivers, auto motor und sport awards everyone Race weekend notes. It not only assesses the performance in the race, but also the impression from the practice sessions and qualifying. Only those who get the maximum out of their car without making any mistakes and, if possible, put their team-mates in the shade, qualify for the top grade of 10.
In the first 12 races we were able to award a 10 12 times. They were divided into 5 drivers. In 4 races, 2 pilots earned the maximum number of points. But four times we completely refrained from getting the highest rating.
