OPINION: After ASN has presented the power rankings of F1 drivers so far in 2022 (part 1, part 2), it is time to take a look at how teams fared in the first half of the season.

The rules have not changed. The position of a team is based on an average mark given by the ASN editorial staff. In the event of a tie, the team with a higher position in the Constructors’ Championship gets a better position in the rankings.

10. Aston Martin – 5/10

Luciano Calamante: Home of Vettel’s last season in Formula 1 – unfortunately struggling with their performance and without a good sight into the break, although hope is never lost.

9. AlphaTauri – 6.25/10

Anton Hreskiv: AlphaTauri are struggling to unlock the potential of their car. They finished 6 times in the top 10 so far this season and haven’t scored points since the Spanish GP.

8. Williams – 6.5/10

AH: The new technical regulations did not help Williams improve their position in the pecking order. The Grove-based outfit is last in the Constructors’ Championship, though they scored 3 points thanks to Alexander Albon.

7. Ferrari – 6.75/10

AH: Despite having one of the quickest cars on the grid, Ferrari are almost 100 points behind Red Bull Racing in the standings. The Prancing Horse needs to improve reliability as well as its approach to strategy in order to fight for titles.

6. McLaren – 7/10

LC: A great line-up, though it feels like Ricciardo has never got a good grip at McLaren, and it doesn’t help with the rumors that he’ll be replaced. They’re one of the teams that seemed to struggle massively at the start but seems to be slowly improving though not consistently.

5. Alpine – 7/10

AH: Alpine have missed out on points this season at Imola only. They are certainly among the quickest midfield teams and are contenders for P4 in the Constructors’ Championship.

4. Mercedes – 7/10

LC: An all-British line-up of two great drivers, though they have suffered massively with the implementation of the new regulations. However, they seem back on track and building their way up which makes them a team to look for after the summer break.

3. Alfa Romeo – 7.25/10

AH: Alfa Romeo scored 38 more points so far this season than in the entire 2021 season. At the same time, they need to get on top of frequent reliability issues.

2. Haas – 7.5/10

LC: Pre-season filled with drama following the expulsion of Nikita Mazepin, though it seemed to be more good than bad – instead of Russian money without expertise, Haas surprised everyone when they brought Kevin Magnussen back, and even more so when they scored good points at the opening race. Definitely a great year in contrast to the last couple of seasons.

Winner. Red Bull Racing – 9.25/10

LC: A great line-up of drivers with great -though sometimes unreliable- machinery makes Red Bull one of the powerhouses in 2022.
