Formula 1's mid-season break is a time for rest, reflection and - in this case - rating what happened in the first half of the year. Specifically, evaluating the performances of the 20 drivers over the first 12 races.
After every race, Autosport rates each driver out of 10 based on their performance throughout the weekend and these contribute towards the mid-season marks.
But the mid-season ratings also take into account wider factors such as progression, contribution to the team and the significance of any errors made. This means that while they broadly correlate to the average of the race weekend marks, they consider other factors and therefore differ in some places.
