We have already reached the first third of the season in this “new Formula 1” after the GP of Montecarlo. We still have 13 Race to see who will be champion in Abu Dhabi (scores double this year) there by the end of November.
After these 6 racing, It has been more than proven that Mercedes is the team that best adapted to the new regulations, and has a great advantage over the other teams, so it seems that Mercedes drivers championship will be played between them. Lewis Hamilton and Nico Rosberg have divided the 6 poles and victories so far, and distance on third place is 60 points. This added to have a rate of one second per lap makes it virtually impossible for others to have options.
Reigning Red Bull is quite far from Mercedes, but it is the second team in performance so far. With Daniel Ricciardo giving the surprise (in both the) doing better than the 4 times champion Sebastian Vettel.
Then we have a group of teams with similar yields points fighting for a podium or even if they fail the above. We can say that Ferrari are, McLaren, Force India y Williams. Fernando Alonso, Niko Hulkenberg and Valtteri Bottas are paying far more than their teammates and are doing very well so far considering that they are mechanically limited compared to Mercedes and Red Bull.
From other teams (Lotus, Toro Rosso, Clean, Caterham y Marussia) include the Marussia team and driver Jules Bianchi, they got ninth place in Monaco. It is the first time in its history and score they have achieved being the team with less budget and resources of the current grid. They have evolved to outrun Caterham, and are already near Sauber, Riding the same engine Ferrari they. With hard work every day and want to improve, can get things like them!
