Highlights

‣ Max Verstappen receives the highest mark in the F1 Power Rankings for the Saudi Arabian Grand Prix, continuing his top performance from Bahrain.

‣ Oliver Bearman secures the second-highest mark in the rankings, impressively performing well despite a last-minute replacement.

‣ The Formula1.com panel grades drivers based on performance, independent of their car’s speed, to determine the best driver at the season’s end.

‣ Charles Leclerc earns the third spot in the rankings with an 8.2, following his podium finish at the Saudi Arabian Grand Prix.


Oh, the thrill of Formula 1! At the heart of the Saudi Arabian Grand Prix, it’s Max Verstappen who steals the show. Again. Just like in Bahrain, he’s the judges’ darling, scoring the highest. Right on his tail, though, is Oliver Bearman. A surprise, perhaps? He’s snagged a pretty impressive score himself, landing in second place.

Now, here’s the scoop. After every Grand Prix, there’s this panel. Picture them: five Formula1.com experts, all huddled up, pouring over performances. And it’s not just about the speed of the cars. Nope. They’re looking at the drivers, dissecting every move, every decision. It’s all about skill, baby. And they keep a tally, all year long, aiming to crown the crème de la crème by season’s end.

So, who’s the king of the track in Saudi Arabia? Verstappen, of course. With a whopping 9.6, he’s sitting pretty at the top. And Bearman? A solid 9 for him, thanks to stepping up big time, despite being a last-minute sub. Then there’s Charles Leclerc, sliding into third with an 8.2, thanks to his podium finish.

But wait, there’s more. Sergio Perez, Verstappen’s own teammate, lands in fifth with an 8.0. A bit of a sting there, with a five-second penalty holding him back. And the rest of the top ten? It’s a who’s who of F1 talent: Oscar Piastri, Nico Hulkenberg, Fernando Alonso, George Russell, Lando Norris, and Alexander Albon. Each bringing their A-game, fighting for every point.

So, there you have it. The latest from the world of Formula 1, straight from Formula1.com. Fast cars, fierce competition, and a bit of drama. Just how we like it.
