'Power Rankings': Verstappen's victory not enough to break into British-dominated top three

The 'Power Rankings' for the race weekend in Great Britain are in. For the sixth time in a row, it was Max Verstappen who crossed the finish line first, while the rest of the field behind him was once again unpredictable. The Red Bull Racing driver had a challenging afternoon at the Silverstone circuit and is not featured on the podium of the 'Power Rankings' this time. The top three, just like at Silverstone, has a British touch.

After each Grand Prix, Formula 1 presents the 'Power Rankings', where the recent performances of the drivers are evaluated by a five-member jury. After the Bahrain Grand Prix, the rankings have also been announced by the jury. Only form, not equipment, determines your final score. The scores are kept throughout the season, so we will find out at the end of the year which driver really performed the best.

McLaren has two drivers on the podium this time

It was McLaren that provided the biggest surprise during the recent Grand Prix weekend. It is no wonder that both drivers score excellently in the 'Power Rankings'. Lando Norris leads the McLaren duo with the highest score. The driver crossed the finish line in second place at Silverstone and managed to keep Lewis Hamilton at bay in a thrilling battle. "He displayed his defensive skills as he kept Hamilton at bay in the final stages, securing an incredible second place."

Oscar Piastri has to settle for second place behind his teammate after narrowly missing out on the podium due to the timing of the safety car. The Australian driver also made good use of the upgrades McLaren put on the car. Piastri was able to keep up with Norris and Verstappen, especially in the opening stages, but eventually had to abandon the fight and focus on George Russell after the safety car period. With a second place in the 'Power Rankings', he can still celebrate a podium finish.

Albon shines once again

Alexander Albon keeps Verstappen off the podium in the 'Power Rankings'. The Williams driver scored points again by finishing eighth in Great Britain. The Thai driver is on a roll and solidifies his position behind the top three in the standings. "It was another stunning race in which Albon scored points, which is gradually becoming his trademark in the Williams colors," was the verdict on Albon's weekend at Formula1.com.

Verstappen not good enough for the podium

It was predicted before the weekend that Verstappen would win the race, and the Red Bull driver delivered once again. It wasn't a perfect race for the reigning world champion as he had a poor start, relinquishing the race lead to Norris. However, Verstappen quickly reclaimed the top spot and didn't give it up. The Dutchman receives a good score, but it's not enough for a podium finish.
