Round 8 F1 team power rankings: Ferrari vault back up the order

The intriguing battle at the top of F1 for team supremacy continues as the cars in red show that they aren’t going anywhere. How will that change things in the power rankings? You’re about to find out.


Firstly, the usual 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 (-1)

The only team now yet to score points in 2024. The car looked nowhere in Monaco. Worrying signs for a team that needs to perform in order to keep things interesting for their big German daddies coming in to the sport in a couple of years.


9. Haas (-2)

A disaster of a weekend for Haas. Both cars excluded on Saturday, then both taken out on Sunday. Here’s hoping Canada will bring some smiles to the team, and less damage bills.


8. Williams (+2)

Points! After what seemed like a downward spiral for the team, Alex Albon did what Alex Albon does best and drive the wheels of the car to scrape home a great result.

7. Aston Martin (-1)

A real nothing weekend for the team. Lance Stroll was unlucky that he was the guinea pig for tyre changes, while Fernando Alonso just sauntered around outside the points for the entire race. Stroll usually does well at home in Montreal, so here’s hoping the car will live up to the potential there.


6. RB (-1)

More points for the team at the hands of Yuki Tsunoda, which are proving to be very valuable with the resurgence of Alpine. Daniel Ricciardo was perhaps unlucky not to reap the benefit of the race conditions, but qualifying also hampered his potential.


5. Alpine (+3)

Could you have imagined Alpine being in the top five at the beginning of the season? Well, here we are. More points for the team and a race that should’ve brought more had it not been for Esteban Ocon’s audacious move at the start. Still, things are looking up for the French outfit.


4. Mercedes (-)

Some good pace for the team across the weekend, with a strong fifth and seventh a solid result. Still a fair bit off the top three in no-man’s land right now.


3. McLaren (-1)

It was great to see an old-school race of McLaren v Ferrari. It was also great to see Ferrari coming out on top. Yeah, I’m an unashamed Ferrari fan, but that still isn’t taking away from the performance of McLaren in Monaco. But given that Ferrari got the double podium, they will edge McLaren back a spot this week.


2. Ferrari (+1)

Two wins out of the last six races and Ferrari are smiling all the way to the bank. It was a dominant weekend by Charles Leclerc, and also a great weekend by Carlos Sainz as the two drivers retain their consistency that has seen both finish in the top five in every race they have entered.


1. Red Bull (-)

They are hanging on to the top spot by fumes. After such a dominant 2023, they have now lost three of the last six races. Even more worrying for them is that the team is once again becoming a one-man show, meaning the Constructors’ Championship particularly is looking in danger right now. 2024 is very much an open fight, and Red Bull knows that.
