Round 17 F1 team power rankings: A different Orange Army rises

It’s time to get into the power rankings once more as we seemingly have the orange dominance in the sport in both the driver and constructor side of things.

Quick disclaimer as always. With any power rankings, these are subjective and based purely on opinion mixed with results. Are these 100 per cent accurate? Inside my mind, yes! Outside of it, no. But it’s a nice way to spark some discussion, showcase some form and allow a conversation that brings F1 fans closer together – and maybe also further apart at the same time.

Fun, right? Always!

Now that’s over with, let’s get to the rankings.

10. AlphaTauri (-3)

Poor weekend from AlphaTauri sees them vault right back down to the bottom of this list. The probably return of Daniel Ricciardo in Austin will hopefully not only boost their spirits, but performance as well.

9. Haas (-1)

Another invisible weekend for the American team.

8. Williams (+1)

A slight improvement from Japan, bumps up a spot only really because Haas were slightly worse.

7. Alfa Romeo (+3)

Double points for the team, that is a solid result and one they’ll gladly take and need for the Championship fight against both Williams and Haas.

6. Aston Martin (-)

A bit of pace in the car for Fernando Alonso gives them some much needed points.

5. Alpine (-)

More points for the French team keeps them above Aston Martin on this list, as well as them being more consistent.

4. Mercedes (-)

Could’ve been much better had both cars finished the race, but still bringing home some solid points to hold off Ferrari for second in the Championship.

3. Ferrari (-1)

A missed opportunity to gain on Mercedes with Carlos Sainz not starting the race, but still consistent enough in both the sprint and main race.

2. McLaren (+1)

If only they had of had this form all season. Right now McLaren will easily pass Aston Martin for fourth in the Championship, but what else could they achieve? They’ve got five rounds to see.

1. Red Bull (-)

The first time they haven’t won both the sprint and main race in a sprint race weekend in 2023. But somehow the still leave happy.

What do you think of these rankings? Do you agree with the positions? Let me know what you think in the comments below.
