Time for Williams to look at Schumacher? Dutch GP driver ratings

P1racenews AI automatic summary:

Crash.net F1 journalist Connor McDonagh runs through the field’s driver ratings for the 2023 Dutch Grand Prix.

“It was a magnificent weekend for the reigning F1 world champion, who achieved his ninth straight victory without any doubts, even when his teammate briefly took the lead. Aston Martin had a strong comeback after a series of difficult races, thanks to Alonso’s standout performance. Gasly surprised everyone with a podium finish, taking third place after Sergio Perez received a time penalty for speeding. Perez had a disappointing weekend, qualifying far off the pole position and struggling to keep up with his teammate’s pace. Ferrari had a poor performance throughout the weekend, so Carlos Sainz’s fifth-place finish was a reasonable result. Hamilton recovered from a poor qualifying session and a flawed strategy from Mercedes to finish sixth. Norris showed exceptional skills in qualifying but lost a potential podium due to a hesitating decision from the pitwall. Albon stood out as one of the stars of the weekend, delivering a flawless performance despite being on the receiving end of two subpar strategy calls. Piastri fought hard to finish in the top 10 after a challenging start to the race. Ocon struggled in comparison to his teammate Gasly, while Stroll’s performance was not up to par compared to Alonso. Lawson had a successful debut, considering his lack of track time prior to the race. Bottas had a strong start but was let down by Alfa Romeo’s decision to leave him on slick tires in the rain. Tsunoda had a promising race until AlphaTauri’s strategy mistake cost him a chance at scoring points. Russell showcased his talent in qualifying and was on track for a good result before a puncture spoiled his race. Zhou briefly reached second place thanks to Alfa Romeo’s strategy, but a lack of pace and a crash caused him to fall out of the points. Overall, it was a disastrous weekend for some and a standout performance for others.”
