We're already half way through the season. And this is one of the most unpredictable season in recent years.
  • Vettel got his hands tied up with tire strategy and driving a car will less advantage compare to others.
  • Webber is more confident and a good chance to challenge the championship again.
  • Hamilton matured this season and much fewer silly mistakes (just one in Valencia this season), but always fawked up by the pit crew.
  • Button is miserable after the third race this season. Same excuse every single time, the rear just got no grip.
  • Alonso is showing how good he is with a shitty car in the beginning. True leader of the Scuderia.
  • Massa is fighting for his job and career in F1. He need to show that he can be a valuable assistant to Alonso and Ferrari.
  • Rosberg still lack of "something" despite a win, and Mercedes could've been one of the fastest car but just lack luck (?) to win again.
  • Schumi just absolute bad luck earlier this season.
  • Raikkonen is fast in most of the races, but seems lack of aggression compare to some other drivers.
  • Grosjean is showing what he can do with a better car. Much better compare to his debut season with a lawn mower.
  • Kobayashi is hiding under radar so far. Perhaps doesn't have to car for him to perform aggressive overtakes, and strapped by usual one stop (or one less stop from others).
  • Perez shines is doing pretty well this season. Look forward to see more from him.
  • Maldonado can be winning races if he keep his cool and calm. But ridiculous retaliation when he lost his mind. He needs to learn racing etiquette.
  • Senna, perhaps people were expecting too much because of his name.
  • Toro Rosso is still RBR's training ground and seems getting slower and slower.
  • Force India is either hit or miss in some races, sometimes we see both Hulkenberg and Di Resta qualified into Q3 and haul some good points. But quite inconsistent results.
  • Caterham is keeping steady pace in improvement. I want to see them get a few points this season.
  • Marussia looks going nowhere, and HRT is still a joke.

Feel free to post your mid-season thoughts.
