Summer day 26 – Giedo van der Garde

Giedo van der Garde – 2
There’s one Dutch driver splitting the French, and that’s Giedo van der Garde. He’s had a good season, taking pole position in Barcelona and only having one bad qualifying session at Silverstone (but still finishing in the points). Racewise, he’s yet to win but has had a lot of good points finishes – second three times, third twice, and fourth three times. He’s also managed to retire three times, once in a feature race, but came back to finish ninth in the sprint. But overall he’s been consistent and deserves second at least. He ought to get a place in F1, but that’s looking unlikely for 2012.

Points: 49
Best qualifying: 1
Worst qualifying: 19
Best finish: 2 (Barcelona sprint, Istanbul, Valencia feature, Monaco sprint)
Worst finish: 9 (Monaco sprint)
Retirements: 3
