Which F1 driver has the most top ten finishes this season?
Finishing the races is the first priority, getting points for that finish ensures the championship charge progresses.
The top ten means points finishing positions. Consistency is key so even front running cars dropping out of the top ten will be desperate to claw their way back into the points. A good driver can recover, even if the machinery isn’t quick enough.
Look for the championship leader, if they’re at the top of the ‘top ten’ list, it’s likely they’ll be able to take it all the way to the end of the season with the point scoring consistency required.
