It's nearly half term and the drivers are lined up outside the head's study. How do you rate their performances so far? Here's my view on each driver:
Jenson Button. Top of the class. How did we ever doubt him?
Rubens Barichello. Rumbled by his brighter class mate. May soon be time to leave.
Sebastian Vettel. Stunning season. Could be next in line for the throne.
Mark Webber. Showing well in a good car at last. Under pressure from Vettel.
Jarno Trulli. A solid season from a very good veteran.
Timo Glock. Disappointing in this year's car. Should be showing Trulli the way home
Nico Rosberg. Making the best of a car that only flatters in qualifying.
Felipe Massa. Keeping his head down and waiting for the Ferrari to improve.
Fernando Alonso. Teachers pet. Driving well whilst waiting for a faster car elsewhere.
Kimi Raikkonen. Must try harder. Does anyone know if he’s really bothered?
Lewis Hamilton. Welcome to the real world. Still a good driver. Showing some respect now.
Nick Heidfeld. Mr Reliable making the best of a slow car.
Heikki Kovalainen. Can’t get his head round driving a crap car
Sebastien Buemi. Bright first season but needs to cut out the silly mistakes.
Robert Kubica. Must concentrate .What a difference a year makes. Finding it hard to grin and bear.
Sebastien Bourdais. Shocked by Buemi. Not good enough for a Champ Car winner.
Giancarlo Fisichella. Wringing the neck of the Force India. Very creditable.
Adrian Sutil. Another young gun for hire. In the queue for a top drive.
Nelson Picquet jnr. Class joker. I’d really like to see Nelson’s boy do well – but it ain’t happening.
Kazuki Nakajima. Kamikaze driver with plenty of ability. Cut the mistakes and could be good.
