Season Comparison: 2012-2013

For a bit of visual aid, here is a comparison of race results for the first nine rounds of the 2012 and 2013 season. It’s not hard to see why (from a driver point of view) the 2013 season so far hasn’t been as thrilling as the 2012 season. This year we’ve consistently seen a swapping between Vettel, Alonso, and Rosberg on the top step (and a bit of Kimi). Where as last year the points were still so close together where is wasn’t until round 8 that Alonso became the first driver to win more than one race.
