Sebastien Vettel, Kimi Raikkonen, Nico Rosberg, Lewis Hamilton and Fernando Alonso have all claimed wins so far this year, but once again it is Vettel and Red Bull Racing that have set the standard.

Indeed going into the summer hiatus, Vettel enjoys a 38-point lead in the Drivers' Championship, while 'his' team, Red Bull Racing, is 69 points ahead of Mercedes in the battle for honours in the Constructors'.

It's been an interesting season, there was the controversy in Malaysia, when Vettel ignored team orders and 'stole' the win from Mark Webber, and we have also had the usual political shenanigans, as much a part of F1 as the racing itself, including the 'secret' tyre test Mercedes conducted with Pirelli following the Spanish Grand Prix and the subsequent fall-out with the FIA's International Tribunal convened to look into the matter. Then there was Silverstone, where it was blow-outs galore and certainly not a race Pirelli will remember fondly. Tyres have been a major talking point and for some that's been good and others rather tiresome.
