A look at the rookies and champions of the 2011 Formula 1 season
The 2011 Formula 1 season has started in the most spectacular fashion as no less than five world champions and four rookies are taking the fight to one another for the top stair of the podium in the final standings.
Five world champions namely, Michael Schumacher, Fernando Alonso, Lewis Hamilton, Jenson Button and Sebastian Vettel are fighting for glory. Vettel is defending his throne in Formula 1 while rest are trying to not let it happen. So far the youngest Formula
1 champion is well on course to become the youngest two-time Formula 1 champion, a record he will steal from Alonso.
Talking about the four rookies of the 2011 season, usually making their way with the small teams, are Pastor Maldonado with Williams team, Paul di Resta with Force India team, Sergio Perez with Sauber and finally Jerome d’Ambrosio with the Virgin team.
Schumacher made his way back in the 2010 season and was completely outperformed by his much younger team-mate, Nico Rosberg. The story is not a lot different in this season as well where Nico is still taking the better of Schumi. The first three races of
the season have not seen the best of Schumi because his car, MGP-W02, is way much slower than some of the bullet like fast machines up in front.
Fernando Alonso is also walking slowly in his Ferrari which completely deceived its fans. With an exceptional pre-season testing sessions, Ferrari and two-time world champion, Alonso have completely failed to put on a good show in the season yet. With all
sorts of mechanical and technical failures, Alonso is slowly giving away the hopes of his championship hat-trick.
McLaren’s duo, Hamilton and Button, are successfully living up to their legend as they are successfully landing on the podiums in the opening three races of the 2011 season. McLaren’s car, MP4-26, is still slower than the Red Bull of Vettel, but still every
now and then, Vettel sees a McLaren in his rear view mirror. Most recently, for the first time Vettel saw both MP4-26 in front of him.
Vettel is almost successfully marching towards a successful defend to his world championship. Vettel has thrice finished on the podium in the opening three races, while winning two of them in Australia and Malaysia.
The rookies have not had the best of the start to their careers. With disqualifications, accidents, engine failures and other mechanical problems, so far, the 2011 rookies are not living up to the expectations of their fans.
Di Resta has been the best of the rookies this season with two point scoring finishes in Australia and Malaysia. Perez did score a point in the opening race in Melbourne but was disqualified but to a breach in the Federation Internationale de l'Automobile
(FIA) laws about the rear wing design.
Other than that, Jerome and Maldonado are yet to score a point for their team and most importantly to start their career on a high.
Nevertheless, 16 races of the season are still due and world champions and rookies will be fighting their own wars.
