Romain Grosjean – 1
He’s on target for the GP2 championship this season, but there are question marks over whether he will get an F1 seat next year due to Renault’s complicated situation. Though he didn’t take pole yesterday, he starts seventh, and he has an amazing ability to overtake that could see him take the championship today.
So how’s he been doing? Well, it was pole and win on the first race, but only fastest lap on the second. Disqualified from the Barcelona feature race, he fought his way back to ninth. At Monaco, he had a bad qualifying and was forced to start from the back of the grid, but played the strategy well to finish fourth before taking third in the sprint. It was now very close at the top of the table. Romain hasn’t had a pole since the start of the season but he has had four more wins. He missed out on the podium at the Silverstone feature but still took the fastest lap. He’s definitely got incredible talent at overtaking which means he ought to win.
Best qualifying: 1
Worst qualifying: 26
Best finish: 1 (Barcelona, Valencia, Hungaroring features, Silverstone, Germany sprints)
Worst finish: 10 (Barcelona sprint)
