There are a number of ‘old rules’ in motorsport, but one of the most-quoted is: "The first person you have to beat is your teammate."

Formula 1 has seen a number of tense teammate moments in 2018, the strongest example coming in Baku when Red Bull drivers Max Verstappen and Daniel Ricciardo collided. Force India teammates Sergio Perez and Esteban Ocon also touched in Singapore, while even the champion team, Mercedes, came under fire for swapping Lewis Hamilton and Valtteri Bottas in Russia.

But out of all the teams this year, who had the most balanced line-up and, therefore, the strongest “number two” driver?

To work it out, we’ve taken the lower-scoring driver from each of the 10 F1 teams this year and tallied what percentage of their teammate’s points they scored, giving us a final ranking of who the strongest 'number two drivers' were in F1 this year.
