Just like the cross-qualifying matches, the cross-qualifiers on Sunday during the race are also an important criterion for teams to compare both drivers. What is the status of the 2023 16th race?
There are big differences between the big teams. Max Verstappen has a 13-2 lead over Sergio Perez, which means the Dutchman has no children with the Mexican, just like in 2022. At Mercedes the score is 12-3 in favor of Lewis Hamilton. Fernando Alonso has so far dominated his teammate Lance Stroll at Aston Martin (14-1), while at Ferrari it is striking that Carlos Sainz and Charles Leclerc are evenly matched (8-7 Sainz after his win in Singapore).
In AlphaTauri, Nyck de Vries said goodbye to AlphaTauri without being able to form a fist against Yuki Tsunoda. The Japanese won 8-2 and, with the exception of Monaco and Austria, always outplayed the Dutchman on Sunday. From Hungary, Tsunoda faced Daniel Ricciardo, who immediately put Tsunoda 1-0 behind in Hungary. But in Belgium, the Japanese scored 1-1. In Holland, Liam Lawson took over for Ricciardo due to his injury, and the rookie immediately beat Tsunoda. In Italy, Lawson made it 1-1, and then proved even better in Singapore (2-1 Lawson). At Haas, Kevin Magnussen is trailing (8-7), while Lando Norris has a huge lead over Oscar Piastri: 12-3. At Alfa Romeo, Valtteri Bottas and Zhu Guanyu are not really evenly matched (10-5 Bottas), while at Alpine and Williams the situation is a little different. The result is 7-5 in Alpine (in favor of Pierre Gasly) and 13-1 in Williams in favor of Alexander Albon. In Australia, Great Britain and Hungary, both Alpine drivers did not make it to the finish, resulting in equal finishes over both weekends. Williams only encountered this in Australia.
