B at the first GP Korea Formula 1- History gave the pilots a particularly good chance to prove their driving skills. A new track, chaotic weather conditions and the pressure of the season end spurt resulted in a high error rate in the field. Only very few got away with it.
The most spectacular mistake was made by Mark Webber, who already said goodbye to both the track and the World Championship lead on lap 18. To make matters worse, the Australian also took Nico Rosberg out of the race with his self-inflicted spin, who up to this point had delivered an outstanding performance in the Silver Arrow.
Both McLaren drivers with errors
The second big loser of the weekend is Jenson Button. The Englishman never really got up to speed and once again had no chance against McLaren team-mate Lewis Hamilton. But Hamilton did not remain flawless either. When restarting after the second safety car phase, the 2008 champion slipped off the track and threw away the possible victory.
One of the few drivers who drove flawlessly throughout the race weekend was Sebastian Vettel. The German secured pole position and did not let the weather or pressure from Fernando Alonso bother him. The fact that the world championship drive remained without any points was again due to the technology. The fact that Renault apologized for the engine burst does not help the Heppenheimer any more than the good mark in our driver's certificate.
Schumacher with an upward trend in Korea
A clear upward trend can be seen with Michael Schumacher . After the old master was able to deliver a good report in Japan, he was again high in the grades in Korea. Sauber drivers Kamui Kobayashi and Timo Glock have once again convinced us and earned good grades.
