F1i's Driver Ratings for the 2019 Bahrain GP

Kimi Raikkonen (P7, 6 pts): 7.5/10
Like his young team mate, Kimi Raikkonen suffered from Alfa Romeo's Friday technical headaches which put him on the back foot going into the rest of the weekend. But F1's oldest active driver has the experience to rise above such tribulations, and he did impressively well to get through to the final round of qualifying and put himself eighth on the grid for Sunday. He spent the race jousting with some of the sport's newest and youngest drivers and seemed rather invigorated by it all, as he succeeded in maintaining his position for pretty much the entire evening. He received an extra bonus at the very end when Hulkenberg's late retirement meant he crossed the line in seventh.
