BRIT PACK RANKINGS: Norris closes up on Paffett

It was a weekend when the Formula 1 and Formula 2 boys solidified their stance in the top ten, but there are still some surprises challenging in the pack.

Lewis Hamilton continued to highlight his position as the pre-eminent British driver of his generation, boosting his position at the top of the Brit Pack Rankings. His third place in the Monaco Grand Prix may not have been the best result he had hoped for, but in these rankings he continues to assert his authority with a weighted points average of 42.708.

It gives him a commanding (unassailable?) lead over the rest of the field, where the battle is certainly hotting up. Gary Paffett (above centre) holds on to second spot following his healthy start to the DTM season, but the Formula 2 boys are starting to crawl all over him. George Russell had a rough weekend in Monte Carlo but his points haul is enough to bring him into third on 15.855, just ahead of WEC/IMSA man Mike Conway.

Lando Norris, who leads the Formula 2 standings, has moved into fifth in the Brit Pack Rankings, just over half a point behind Conway. Again it was not the best weekend for the F2 charger, but he continues to close in on second spot. His contemporaries, Alexander Albon and Jack Aitken, site in 7th and 8th respectively, with Sam Bird just ahead of them. Rounding out the top ten are two GT racers – Stuart Leonard and Jenson Button.

Looking further down, it was a great weekend for Nick Yelloly, who has moved up to a healthy 25th place following his Porsche Supercup success in Monaco. Not far behind him is SuperFormula debutant Dan Ticktum, who sits in 27th.

It was a trying weekend for those who took part in the Indianapolis 500, with none of the IndyCar regulars making a mark on the rankings. Despite not finishing the race, Ed Jones remains the highest-placed Indycar racer in 34th. Stefan Wilson, who did so well to lead the great race in the closing stages, makes his Brit Pack entry at 55. We are all hoping to see him climb the rankings as the season progresses, but this will need him to participate in more races. Fingers crossed.
