F1i's Driver Ratings for the 2019 British GP

Charles Leclerc (P3, 15 pts): 9.5/10
There was a clear number one driver at Ferrari this weekend - and it wasn't Sebastian Vettel. Instead it was Charles Leclerc who consistently set the best times for the team throughout every session at Silverstone. He topped the timesheets in final practice and was fastest of all in Q2, only to end up a tantalising 0.079s off pole in the final round. Even so, that was a whopping six tenths faster than his struggling team mate managed. Yet come the race it still seemed that Ferrari was focussed on boosting Vettel's position while all Leclerc's spirited hard work attempting to stay ahead of Max Verstappen was rather thrown under the bus with some clumsy strategy calls from the team that set him back and dropped him to a frustrating sixth place. That he rebounded from this with a superb pass on Pierre Gasly plus a little help from the Vettel/Verstappen clash and ended up on the podium is testament to an increasingly confident and assured driver clearly enjoying his time in F1.
