Even though he did only a few laps at the Aus GP, he drove well enough in those few laps to earn a spot in the top ten ranked drivers (9th), ahead of Vettel in 10th.

But don't worry, I haven't changed my mind on Ericsson just because of his 9th place finish in Bahrain (). I'm not a fan of Ericsson. I still firmly believe he's spot on the grid is unworthy, and it is only because of his links with the Swedish owners of Sauber that he is still on the grid. He should've been dumped end of 2016. End of 2017 definitely. It has been what.. almost 50 GP's since he scored a point? The 2015 Italian GP was his last venture into the points if I'm not mistaken. Not good enough. In my opinion.


But you also said you agreed with the Top Ten list - which placed Ericsson in 9th.

So you don't think he deserves to be on the grid - but is in the top ten of drivers?

You mean Ericsson who has won a FBMW UK championship, British F3 races, the Japanese F3 title and GP2 races. The male version of Carmen Jorda? Leave it out!

Whilst i appreciate we are all entitled to our own opinion on drivers and that we all have our favourites and those that we just don't rate for one reason or another, that really is complete nonsense mate.

Ok, I think I got it figured out now. With the extremely overrated guys like Vettel and the utter garbage like valtieri "butt-ass" on the grid, there are more than 10 drivers that don't belong on the grid, all of which are ranked below Ericsson, who also doesn't belong on the grid, but is a top 10 driver on the grid. Right?

Ahh, I think I follow:

So Ericsson doesn't belong on the grid, and Vettel also does not warrant a place. Which means that Magnussen is the only driver who deserves a place, and the rest of the drivers should find their future elsewhere?

All hail Kevin, son of Jan! Obviously the best son of a mediocre former 90s driver on the grid...

Is Lulu the third most impressive driver on the grid this year so far? Maybe. Kimi could have a claim to be in that top 4, as could Hulk. Overall, pretty fair rankings thus far.
