Lo Mejor: Formula 1 Superstar Fernando Alonso Stands Atop German Motorsports Magazine’s Mid-Season Report Card
There’s only been 11 races in the Formula 1 season. But there’s little doubt about who the top driver in the sport is. Oakley’s Fernando Alonso, with three resounding victories on the year, dominated the authoritative German motorsports magazine Auto Motor und Sport’s driver rating for the first half of the schedule. With a rating system that took into account world championship points, comparison to teammates, equipment at their disposal, accidents and luck – the publication had O’s Ferrari speed demon dominating the overall scoring. With a near-perfect score of 9.09 out of a maximum 10 points, Fernando is credited with having flown the Maranello flag in a car that is by no means considered the fastest on the grid week in and week out. In addition, the Spaniard has turned defeat into victory on multiple occasions – in a show of skill and patience.
