Pastor Maldonado reached a new high in the Castrol EDGE Rankings following his surprise maiden victory in the Spanish Grand Prix.

Sergio Perez surged to an all-time high in the Castrol EGDE Rankings on the back of his outstanding drive in a remarkable Malaysian Grand Prix. The Mexican came within a small mistake of his first ever grand prix victory, as bold calls in changeable conditions thrust him into a spectacular and unlikely fight for the lead with Fernando Alonso. The Spaniard had looked likely to drop behind Perez such was the latter’s pace in the Sauber, but seven laps from the end – and within DRS range – he touched the kerb on the approach to the back straight and ran wide, effectively ending his victory bid.

November 14th, 2011
Sebastien Loeb dropped to an all-time low of ninth in the Castrol EDGE Rankings after retiring from the season-ending Rally of Great Britain in bizarre circumstances. Despite the retirement however Loeb was still able to clinch a record eighth WRC crown, after the only man capable of stopping him – Ford’s Mikko Hirvonen – was also forced out of the rally. The pair, separated by just eight points heading into the rally, had been locked in a fight for the lead until Hirvonen’s retirement, which came just after he had edged ahead on the Dyfi East stage

Lewis Hamilton’s clash with Felipe Massa in the Indian Grand Prix, the latest in a string of altercations between the two this season, caused both drivers to fall in the Castrol EDGE Rankings.

The result was the sixth instance of contact between the pair this season, although on this occasion both were able to continue.

Will Power will be hoping the 2011 IndyCar title race mirrors the Castrol EDGE Rankings after getting the upper hand over chief rival Dario Franchitti this week.

Jenson Button broke back into the Castrol EDGE Rankings top eight courtesy of his perfectly judged victory in changeable weather conditions in Hungary. A run of bad luck – including consecutive retirements at Silverstone and the Nurburgring – had dropped Button to a two-year low of ninth in the Rankings, but Hungary proved the perfect tonic as Button once again showcased his ability to win in the trickiest of conditions in what was his 200th grand prix start. The win not only reinvigorated Button’s challenge in the 2011 championship, but moved him back to eighth ahead of NASCAR’s Carl Edwards.

The Briton provided the perfect tonic to his and McLaren’s recent struggles with astounding performances in qualifying and the race, taking his second win of the season in style with decisive moves on Mark Webber and Fernando Alonso. Victory not only reignited Hamilton’s title ambitions, but put him level with Stirling Moss’ tally of 16 grands prix victories and allowed him to move back into the Rankings top five – an honour he had held for more than 12 months before Dario Franchitti demoted him to sixth
July 18th, 2011
Yvan Muller’s emphatic World Touring Car Championship double at Donington Park last weekend allowed him to break into the Castrol EDGE Rankings top 60.

July 4th, 2011
The weather may not exactly have fitted the occasion, but Bruno Spengler made light of a rain-shortened DTM race at the Norisring to take the race victory, championship lead and his best Rankings spot to date in one fell swoop. Rain was the big challenge at the famous German circuit, but Spengler led the whole race aside from his pitstops, denying his Mercedes team-mate Jamie Green a fourth consecutive victory at the track
June 20th, 2011
The Castrol EDGE Rankings this week contain the usual melange of high risers and sharp fallers, but this time around there is also something rather unexpected.

May 16th, 2011

Huff’s weekend of domination at Monza, where he recorded two wins from pole position in his works Chevrolet Cruze, promotes him six places in the Rankings to 54th. He moves ahead of DTM ace Timo Scheider, NASCAR man David Reutimann, Formula 1 racer Jaime Alguersuari, IndyCar poster girl Danica Patrick and Grand-Am top dogs Scott Pruett and Memo Rojas, who suffered a rare defeat this weekend at Virginia International Raceway
May 9th, 2011

The second round of the Formula Renault 3.5 Series on the Spa-Francorchamps circuit provided the big risers in the Castrol EDGE Rankings this weekend.

March 15th, 2011
Kasey Kahne closed in on a spot in the top 30 of the Castrol EDGE Rankings with a commanding NASCAR Truck Series victory at Darlington last weekend. The 30-year-old American was due to have a week off from his regular Sprint Cup activities, but instead accepted a ride with rival Kyle Busch’s squad and promptly won on what was only his second Truck Series start since 2004. Kahne’s victory did not improve his 35th position in the Castrol EDGE Rankings, but it did boost his score, meaning that he heads to this weekend’s Bristol Sprint Cup event with a chance of overhauling Tony Kanaan, Rubens Barrichello, Matt Kenseth, Clint Bowyer and Ryan Hunter-Reay as he bids to crack the top 30 for the first time since last August.
