A silverwash?

During this season I have noticed a lot of people saying “that’s it now, that’s the way it will go for the rest of the season”. At one point it was Ferrari to win and McLaren nowhere. Now maybe it’s perceived as the other way around.

It’s always amazing to me how quickly history his forgotten. I have composed a table showing the difference between the current drivers current points in the current season, and their points at the end of race 10.

Driver 2008 2007 Diff
Robert Kubica 48 24 24
H.Kovalainen 28 15 13
Jarno Trulli 20 7 13
R.Barrichello 11 0 11
Mark Webber 18 8 10
Nelsinho Piquet 10 0 10
Kazuki Nakajima 8 0 8
Nick Heidfeld 41 36 5
Sebastian Vettel 6 1 5
Timo Glock 5 0 5
Nico Rosberg 8 5 3
Jenson Button 3 1 2
S.Bourdais 2 0 2
Anthony Davidson 0 0 0
Adrian Sutil 0 0 0
Kimi Räikkönen 51 52 -1
David Coulthard 6 8 -2
Takuma Sato 0 4 -4
Felipe Massa 54 59 -5
Lewis Hamilton 58 70 -12
G.Fisichella 0 17 -17
Fernando Alonso 13 68 -55

Maybe Kimi doesn’t seem to care this year? But on the other hand he’s hardly down on last year. I’m not saying Kimi is going to win but he’s only one point down on his position last year, whereas Lewis and Massa have dropped a significant chunk from last year’s position. Remember anything can happen in Formula 1 – and it usually does.

This has been a close season, and it ‘aint over until Bernie sings. And there is one more race this year than last year.
