8. Marcus Ericsson, Sauber – 23.07 percent

Charles Leclerc: 39 points
Marcus Ericsson: 9 point

Marcus Ericsson may feature low down on this list, yet this was without question his strongest season in F1 so far.

As Sauber made rapid progress through the year, Ericsson became more and more competitive within the midfield, scoring his best F1 qualifying result at the penultimate race in Brazil.

With a little more fortune in the closing stages of the year, Ericsson’s points total may have been higher than the nine he finished on. But Ferrari-bound teammate Charles Leclerc unquestionably stole the show at the Swiss team this year, ending the year in style with three straight P7 finishes.

It meant that come the final points tally, Ericsson had accrued less than a quarter of his teammate’s points in 2018.
