Using INDYCAR’s advanced statistics and data, we’ve developed a weighted formula to rate the NTT IndyCar Series drivers after each race this season. Welcome to the Power Rankings – and it doesn’t necessarily mean that Will Power will always be included.
How does it work? We look at more than just the results of the event, also factoring in qualifying results, on-track passes, on-track position passes and average running position throughout the race to come up with each driver’s rating.
The rankings are based on the four most recent races. The most recent race (DXC Technology 600) is weighted the most in the rating and the oldest race (Indianapolis 500) the least.
So, following Texas and heading to Road America, here’s a look at the top NTT IndyCar Series drivers:
Still the One
Alexander Rossi – The Andretti Autosport standout is riding a hot streak of five straight top-five finishes and remains solidly at the top of these Power Ratings for the third week in a row. Dominating the day at Road America will do that.
On the Rise
Graham Rahal – The same 10 drivers that have made up the top 10 after the last two races make up this week’s top 10 as well. Rahal rises to his highest ranking of the season after a solid fourth-place finish at Road America.
Looking to Bounce Back
Santino Ferrucci – After being ranked a season-high third last week, the rookie’s four-stop strategy at Road America failed to pay off. He tumbles to 10th after his worst finish in the last month.
The Top 10
Dropped out: No one
