Round 10 F1 team power rankings: Ferrari falling back as Mercedes continues to improve

Updated: Jul 1

Another round where the momentum seemingly changes at the top which makes the team power rankings even more unpredictable. How will that change things? We’re about to find out.


But first, the disclaimer. You know the drill, these are all subjective and based mainly on my (incredibly smart) opinion mixed with form and on-track results, meaning it is a generally subjective list that holds no real weight except for the large basis of fact I like to think I can generate.


So with that in mind, let’s get to the rankings.


10. Kick Sauber (-)

Feel bad keeping them last considering they actually beat a few teams this race but they also remain the only team without points, so that has to come into play.

9. Williams (-)

It’s worrying they’ve gone back to having no pace after having a couple of good races, particularly at a track that showcases generally where your car is at overall.


8. RB (-2)

Well that wasn’t a great race now was it? Both drivers were nowhere near the top ten in quali or the race, and were severely lacking overall pace. Let’s hope Austria is a turnaround.


7. Haas (+1)

Another 11th place for Hulkenberg was a solid showing, but the fact that Alpine have improved so much means that the solid showings of early in the season amount to not much now on the scoreboard.


6. Alpine (+1)

More points for the team as they rise up the ranks. A complete turnaround from the first few races of the season.

5. Aston Martin (-)

Probably lucky to not drop out of the top five given they were nowhere all weekend in Barcelona. Keep this up and they’ll have Alpine breathing down their neck even more.


4. Ferrari (-1)

That’s two races in a row where they have seemingly fallen off a cliff, a long way away from the joys of Monaco only a few rounds ago. It’s all feeling very familiar right now as a Ferrari fan.


3. Mercedes (+1)

Two races in a row with podiums. That’s more like it! Have had the measure of Ferrari the last couple of rounds which they will be pushing to maintain deep into the season.


2. McLaren (-)

If Oscar Piastri didn’t have such a poor showing in Spain, there’s every chance McLaren might be even higher on this list. Ultimately they just fall short, but there’s still time to change that.


1. Red Bull (-)

Remains a one-man team carrying a very heavy load, but when that man is Max Verstappen you know you’re in a safe pair of hands. Would be nice of Checo to perhaps show up eventually though


What do you think of this list? Which order would you currently rank the teams in? Let me know your thoughts below!
