F1i's Driver Ratings for the 2019 Spanish GP

Max Verstappen (P3, 15 pts): 9/10
We know that the Honda-powered Red Bull is not the fastest car on the F1 grid at the moment, but in Max Verstappen's hands it continues to punch well above its weight. After a sleepy start to the weekend in FP1, Verstappen was consistently faster than his team mate in Spain and took his customary fourth place on the grid after qualifying. It put him in the perfect position to benefit from Sebastian Vettel's overly ambitious lunge on Valtteri Bottas at the start of the race, and he was able to pick up third place from the Ferrari. After that, he just had to stay out of trouble and keep out of the crosshairs of Vettel and Leclerc - easier said than done with the sudden outbreak of chaos arising from the safety car. But it proved no problem for Verstappen, who had pretty much the perfect weekend possible for someone not driving a Mercedes.
