    I'll name eight and in this rough order..

    Hamilton, Verstappen, Rosberg, Riccardo, Sainz, Perez, Kimi, Vetel.

    ..and also be prepared to shuffle them slightly, especially the last 5.

    mine would look similar to yours. except i will remove Vettel on the list. too much cursing. and anger and frustration. not good for a f1 driver to react like that

    I don't feel Vetels swearing should come in to the equation and his driving was largely very good so gonna have to leave him there, sorry.
    I knew I'd forget someone... Fred! He should also be in my top 5-6, some great performances in a mediocre car.

    Just because Vettel was "Moaner" of the year dosnt affect his placing The funny part for me was when Vettel complained about Verstappens driving to get him on the Podium then his place was taken by Ricciardo

    Come on, don't be like that, you've never wanted for Charlie to fuck off?
    Think about it, every race rolling start, every shitty inconsistent steward decisions, all those stupid knee jerk reactions... They are all pretty much his fault.

    Hamilton
    Kimi
    Ricciardo

    I don't think I could pick out ten drivers and order them as it's very difficult for me to compare their result when in different cars, but I'm going to name Ricciardo as my driver of the year. Even though Max has taken the spotlight from him, it's the honey badger who's been getting the better results. He had to fight against an extremely hyped and talented driver, kept his head down and beat him 10-7 in qualifying and 9-7 in races. Furthermore, he had two race wins taken away from him in Spain and Monaco due to questionable calls or outright mistakes from the team.

    I'm glad that we have a driver as exciting as Verstappen and that we're all hyped up about him, but let's not forget that it's Dan who's delivering most of the goods for Red Bull. At least when it comes to actual driving.
