Championship standings

I’ve updated the World Drivers’ and Constructors’ Championship standings following the Spanish GP, so we can see where everyone’s at.

Jenson Button has stretched his healthy lead up the front in the WDC – to 14 points ahead of his teammate Rubens Barrichello – and Brawn as a team are doing very well overall in the WCC with a total of 68 points.

Ross Brawn has said that his team’s only real threat at the moment is Red Bull, and looking at the standings you’d have to say he’s right!

It’s still pretty shocking to see that Williams haven’t managed to convert any of their now slowly diminishing advantage into reasonable points, languishing as they are near the bottom of the WCC table.

And the Ferrari drivers must be kicking themselves – both being 38 points behind Button in the Drivers’ – with the team overall in the bottom half of the Constructors’.

But what will it all look like come the end of the season?

I missed a few lines.

The reliability of Brawn and Red Bull has been surprising good this year. Last year they were lucky to finish half the races during the season (some due to accidents).

Just nice to see Williams have 3 drivers, compared to McLarens 1, but never mind, Kovaleinen hasn’t really set the world on fire, so who needs factual accuracy?

Otherwise, really nice to see a driver who has stuck with the sport despite having some awful cars over the last few years do well. Button deserves his chance to show he is a good driver.

As for Mr Hamilton, one bad car and he’s started complaining and threatening to quit, such a good sport.
