LONELY ROOKIE: As the only newbie it's been tough for Latifi

Sebastian Vettel - 88 (-1)

The four-time World Champion has really struggled this season. A good showing in Hungary was undone by a spin at Silverstone, while his relationship with Ferrari is crumbling.

Sebastian Vettel has lost two on his pace and one from his race craft, while gaining one on experience.

Alex Albon - 77 (-2)

A potential race win in the first Grand Prix of the year ended in tears after a clash with Lewis Hamilton. Since then Albon's performances have been rocky.

He's got +2 to experience and race craft, but -6 to awareness and -3 to pace.

Daniil Kvyat (-1), Sergio Perez (-1), Antonio Giovinazzi (-1), and Kimi Raikkonen (-1) have also seen decreases.
