We had a fantastic response to the Top Five Drivers of the year competition.

But the comments that it sparked about the relative merits of the current F1 drivers really got us thinking.

Following on from that, we thought it would be fascinating to see how the drivers’ championship table might look if it were decided by you. So give us your top ten and we’ll award them championship points, add them all up and see who’s the champion.

The key to this is to imagine the drivers in equal cars and then look at the job they did week in week out with what they had to work with – who did the best job in 2011?

The JA on F1 Fans’ World Championship is your chance to make a direct comparison between Sebastian Vettel and Paul Di Resta, between Fernando Alonso and Heikki Kovalainen. Give us your Top Ten drivers of 2011 and we’ll get the most accurate snapshot yet of what F1 fans really think of the current crop of drivers. We’ll present the data in several interesting ways.

It was a dominant year from Sebastian Vettel and Red Bull, but was Sebastian your number one? Did Jenson Button’s epic drives in Canada and Japan, or Fernando Alonso’s relentless determination throughout the season, resonate more with the fans?

What about the rest of the field? Have any of the midfield runners, who delivered exciting racing all season, impressed you more than the guys up front? Perhaps you think Heikki Kovalainen or Daniel Ricciardo would have kept Sebastian more honest in the sister Red Bull?

Your votes will help to answer these questions and find out what the fans think as a whole.

Use the comments box below to list your drivers, first to tenth, and we’ll award championship points as in a Grand Prix (25 for 1st, 18 for 2nd, 15 for 3rd, right down to 1 for 10th place). The scores will be counted-up to produce a true Fans’ World Championship.

We will pick two entries at random and these will be sent a signed copy of the JA on F1 2011 review book “Vettel Steals the show”. (BTW – There are only a couple of hundred copies left now, so if you haven’t already ordered one and want one, now is a good moment! Click HERE)

This isn’t a survey of where you all live, so it’s vital that all national allegiance is put aside and you vote based on who you believe performed the best in 2011.

We will leave this open for a few days and then try to get the data out for Christmas. Please make a fresh post when casting your vote, rather than replying to someone else’s comment.

Once the results are in, we hope to provide more than just a fans’ choice winner. We’ll offer a deeper insight into consensus amongst the fans and hopefully, the chance for you to frame your individual view within the broader context of opinion.

It should be interesting.

    Get a grip is a very telling statement.

    I had then reversed but as I reviewed the list before sending I consnidered tyres and whilst they both has problems getting the grip from the tyres Alonso never to got grips with the Hard tyre so flipped them around.

    Or maybe I just wanted to give Mark an early Xmas present :-)

    [Reply]

    MISTER Reply:

    OK, I accept your point. But the difference in the tyre issue is that both Ferrari had problems with the hard tyre. This to me it looks like a problem which came with the car, like the inability of the car to switch those tyres on.

    But in Webber’s case, that’s different. The RedBull car could switch those tyres on very good. Look at Vettel. Only in the last races Webber learned how to turn those harder tyres on and actually prefered them to the softer tyres.

    From the two paragraphs above, to me it looks like it was Webber’s issue with the tyres and the the cars, like it was with the Ferrari.

    Indeed. This will be interesting. I’ll have q think before posting my list. Some of the results should be obvious though: for example it’s easy to place drivers in the same team since they did have equal equipment. So it would be crazy if people placed Webber above Vettel for instance (though I guess one may wish to include luck/car failures as part of the decision).

    [Reply]

    madmax Reply:

    You would think it would be obvious to place whoever finished clearly first between team mates ahead on the list since it is about who would have came out on top in same car.

    The fact that Di Resta finished way lower on points than Sutil but is listed ahead of him so many times looks like nationalistic hype is more important here.

    Wayne Reply:

    Media coverage will play a part in this. Di-resta got a huge amount of media coverage compared to Sutil, and that does have an effect on people. It’s not necessarily nationalistic hype or deliberate on the part of the poster. Like me for example, I went with perception and what I felt rather than a full stats analysis and DI-Resta came out on top.

    madmax Reply:

    “perception and what I felt”

    That’s what I meant by nationalistic hype. It wasn’t a dig at anyone just an observation. Who influenced them perceptions and feelings? Probably the British media particularly BBC.

    I read an article other day from Scottish website about how Di Resta is now the confirmed no.1 driver in force India next year. I commented under the article, “their website must have confirmed it because no one else did” and the guy instead of admitting they made it up just tried to insult me.

    christos pallis Reply:

    Reply to Madmax comment.

    I get your point but at the same time do you really believe that Webber had the same equipment as Vettel all year long? I dont want to offend but if you do you dont know F1. Di Resta was the one with the upgrades only after Sutil and Force India are one of those teams who cant always make tw oof everything in time.

    Di Resta being a rookie and also being behind in terms of upgrades and also usually drawing the short straw on teams split stratergy (2 stops apposed to 3) there is an argument to say Di Resta had a better season than Sutil!

    Besides why would Force India let a driver who brings sponsorship “Sutil” who is better according to your argument leave the team for Di Resta??? Because they have the info and Di Resta had a great season!

    IMHO of course

    Chris

    madmax Reply:

    @ christos,

    Only after seeing your reply,

    I think Webber had the same car as Vettel because Webber’s problem was clearly adjusting to the tyres. But if their was any team that I would suspect of not having the same car it would be Red Bull because of them wanting to promote Vettel as the golden child.

    About Di Resta, the reason he was signed over Sutil was “potential” and the fact the deal was supposed to have been done months ago before Sutil started to dominate Di Resta when he got his tyre problems sorted.

    I also don’t want to offend but is what you said not the ultimate example of getting caught up in the hype. People are continuously told in the British media about how good Di Resta is, so when the hard facts don’t back up their claims people look for reasons to prove why he is in fact what they precieved.

    Maybe he hadn’t the same equipment, Sutil had the better strategies etc. Why would Force India favour the driver they were getting rid of?? The thing is anytime Sutil hadn’t as good a strategy you would never heard about it.

    Sutil’s sponsorship is small as pay drivers go and who knows about the Mercedes deal behind Di Resta.

    How can you put Alonso above Button and Rosberg above Schumacher?

    Every race Button approached with a strategic view and knew what he needed to do to win and very rarely had to change that plan but when he did he made the most of it. When he could he put pressure on the drivers in front and when he could not (Keeping Tyrus etc) he kept followers behind managing speed and distance ahead of those on similar Tyree strategies.

    Rosberg has taken a similar approach to the race whilst Schumacher has had to bully his way through the pack or throw in an extra move to keep better racers behind him.

    I also assume you put Hamilton behind Schumacher because of the visions of Monza with Hamilton unable to pass him when he has out classed Shui for most of the year.

    But you are entitled to your views and I wish you a very happy Christmas.

    [Reply]

    MISTER Reply:

    None of your points reflect on my choice of drivers. I have put Schumi above Rosberg because Rosberg only looked like he was going backwards in that Mercedes.
    Good qualy, I give him that, but that’s about it. Nothing special. Schumi on the other side, most of the times, awful qualy but except couple of races when he crashed into people, he was pushing that car more then Rosberg. He was getting more out of the car.

    Between Alonso and Button was a close call, but Alonso’s Ferrari was not as fast as the McLaren, and his determination and his amazing starts did it for me.

    And as for Hamilton, I was very generous with 5th place. Thinking back at how many collisions he had with Massa, Kobayashi and Maldonato..that looks rather rookie skills.

    1. Vettel – He did a better job than anyone.

    2. Button – Quick & Consistent against a strong team mate.

    3. Alonso – He would be 2nd but his team mate isn’t as strong as Buttons.

    4. Kovalainen – Did a superb job. Tempted to put him second but I’m a little unsure about how bad Trulli is these days so difficulut to judge.

    5. Perez – I think this chap’s a real hot shot – Drove well all year, beating Kobayashi for most of it in a car that was obviously miles off the pace for well publicised reasons.

    6. Sutil – Once he got on top of the tyres he was best of the rest. Shame he’s not got a drive next year yet but I’m sure Williams will snap him up.

    7. Di Resta – Pretty close to Sutil all season and that’s a good benchmark. Plenty of room for improvement so let’s hope he continues in the right direction.

    8. Ricciardo – Wanted to put him higher but couldn’t justify it. Basically battered Liuzzi in his first season in an awful car. Can’t wait to see what this chap does at Toro Rosso.

    9. Alguesuari (Spelling?) – Had a solid season definitely, he shouldn’t be without a drive next year although I think he will end up at HRT.

    10. Rosberg – I wanted Schumacher in as well but as Rosberg beat him I couldn’t justify it. Rosberg has been outstanding in Quali, not so much in the races but I believe most of that is down to the car.

    Why would you rate 1 driver depending on his team mate? You just said that Alonso would be 2nd but Massa is not as strong as Hamilton, and because of that Button gets 2nd place and Alonso 3rd in your list.

    Wu Reply:

    Rosberg might have been more consistant, but Schumacher gave the best result of the season through some breathtaking wet driving. Let’s not forget that he had a chance to win the race if kept on raining. Canada race gave us two of a very few excellent driving efforts of the last 10 years. If Schumi was a rookie he would stay on another year for that performance alone.

    Michael Reply:

    Webber stayed upbeat and showed true sportmanship this year despite being outgunned by the ‘complete package’ S.Vettel. He pulled off one or two of the best overtakes you will ever see in a grandprix whilst beating both Hamilton and Alonso (13 months ago the two highest rated drivers of the lot)on championship points in a car that had decidedly less of a downforce/laptime advantage than last years redbull. He was obviously overshadowed by Vettel but I doubt any other driver on the grid would’ve faired any better.

    [Reply]

    MISTER Reply:

    I disagree.
    And why you compare RB7 with RB6 when you talk about Webber’s performances compared with Hamilton and Alonso?
    Why don’t you compare the RB7 with the Ferrari and McLaren? Isn’t that what you should do?

    Liam Reply:

    I rated Button Higher than Alonso because he got similar results to Alonso (the most out of the car nearly every race) but with a stronger team mate. Quite simple really.

    [Reply]

    MISTER Reply:

    Hi Liam.
    You got a point. I can see that now and I understand your choice of Button ahead of Alonso.

    I wonder what could Alonso do if he had a stronger team-mate..or even Vettel.
    People tend to either do better when the competition is tighter or give-in under the presure.

    Liam Reply:

    I would say that now any sensible person must class the top tier of drivers as Alonso, Vettel, Hamilton and Button… In that very order. I would also say that if you pair any of these guys with one of the other top four it’ll be very close over a season – Pretty much as it is with Hamilton and Button. I rate them all very highly.

    Talking of rating highly… Next season is going to be absolutely epic with Di Resta, Hulk, Ricciardo, JEV, Raikkonen and Grosjean getting stuck in. It’s very nearly a full grid of drivers that I want to watch. If only they could get rid of Maldonado, De La Rosa and Schumacher who I don’t hate but feel there are better, younger prospects around who would be better placed in their seats.

    Hahaa this is a great idea but I have to say, we will have to get into the Matrix first before we can truly figure out what some mid-field & backmarker drivers would have achieved because as we know, some people can’t handle the pressure of being in a front running team e.g. Heikki in 2008.

    Okay with all things being equal, in my the top 10 drives of 2011 in my view are as follows;

    1. Alonso
    2. Vettel
    3. Button
    4. Rosberg
    5. Hamilton
    6. Sutil
    7. Di Resta
    8. Heikki
    9. Riccardo

    There are two type of drivers. The ones that get and adapt fast. Pure talented pilots like hamilton, montoya, alonso, vettel etc then there are other that need time but get to a very high standar if given. Button,damon hill, mansell. Kovalainen could be of the second type, and was driving for good teams too soon.
    We will have to wait and see.

    Jenson Button – no question

    A thourough professional all year. Beating Hamilton in his own team shows how good he actually is. Its akin to Barichello beating Schumi at Ferrari.

    Well maybe Massa is not allowed to make life very difficult for Alonso… you can like that or not.. but it doesn’t change a lot to the performance Alonso has given all year.

    Fact is Alonso ended the season way ahead of Hamilton in a generally slower car.

    Seriously, who else gave us such a spectacle than Schumi – he overtook the most, his defending was always exciting and hard, and you could feel the motivation and calculated ruthlessnes in everything he did. For most of the races this year it felt like Schumi never left. It’s hard to race against yourself 20 years younger, but he sort of pulled it off this year.

    1. Vettel – clear winner.
    2. Alonso – ahead of Button because he was more consistent and got more performance out of his car.
    3. Button – close to Alonso, well ahead of the rest. Best season of his career so far.
    4. Hamilton – shocking year by his standards, but he did still win 3 races and score 46% of his teams points.
    5. Webber – the almost perfect driving by Vettel and the final score card of 1 win to his team mates 11, makes Webbers performance look worse than it actually was.
    6. Sutil – weak start to the season, but came on very strong later.
    7. Alguersuari – showed potential.
    8. Kobayashi – still great at overtaking, but is he improving enough in other areas to ever get a top drive?
    9. Di Resta – showed speed in qualifying from the start. Too much contact with other cars at the start of season.
    10. Heidfeld – was never going to lead the team like Kubica, but scored 47% of the teams points and finished 11th in the championship while only competing in 11 races. And is it a coincidence that the teams performance dropped off after he left?

    Some of those that didn’t make the cut –
    Where has Massa gone?
    Mercedes – 4th fastest car, no top 10 drivers…
    Kovalainen – I think he is one of those drivers who can make a bad car look better than it is, but can’t deliver in the pressure of a top team. And he finished behind Trulli in the championship…

    **Paul** Reply:

    Harsh on Heikki. Remember that at McLaren he was always given 2nd choice machinery and an inferior strategy to his team mate. He’s gone up against argubly one of the very best qualifers in F1 in recent years and beat him fairly easily. I certainly think his performance in that car was at least on a par with Hamilton and Webber.

    [Reply]

    Liam Reply:

    Yeah, Heikki has really pulled his socks up. People are quick to forget how much promise he showed before he went to McLaren… Not just in F1 btw and that talent doesn’t just disappear. He went way off the boil at McLaren but the boy’s got some class, I just hope he doesn’t turn in to a bit of a Sutil and reach a plateau with a midfield team because that would be a shame.

    Alonso for me was the driver of the year. To be within a sniff of 3rd in the championship in a very lackluster Ferrari is just amazing. More than doubling Felipe’s points haul. I think if Fernando was in a RB7 this year, he would have won every race. Look at his consistency! With the exception of China and his retirement in Canada, he finished at or more often than not above the perceived level of performance that that Ferrari had in terms of its competitors.

    1. Vettel. He was in a different league this year.
    2. Alonso. Probably took the fight to vettel.
    3. Button. Epic drives would keep him in contention but qualifying let him down.
    4. Rosberg. Wouldve won a race im sure.
    5. Hamilton. Good car or not, something wasnt right this year.
    6. Schumacher. Poor quali but good race pace.
    7. Sutil. Difficult choice. Experience would keep him ahead of di resta. He was best of the rest as it was, so in equal cars i think he mightve been better than some!
    8. Kovalainen. Consistent but not spectacular.
    9. Webber. All cars being equal would amplify his struggles.
    10. Massa. Poor season by his standards but i still rate him higher than most midfielders and he wouldve had an edge over the rookies.

    [Reply]

    Liam Reply:

    I can’t agree that Massa would’ve had an edge on any rookies… Each to their own and everything but the only reason Massa ever finished in the top six is because his car was soooo much quicker than the mercs. He was consistently 1/2 to 1 second slower than Alonso… I think the rookies would’ve had a few tenths on Massa pretty much everywhere this season.

    1. Sebastian Vettel

    (almost flawless in qualifying all year; same goes for his performances on a Sunday). Pretty close to a perfect seaon, regardless of what car he was driving)

    2. Heikki Kovalainen

    (outperformed his car AND his teammate at pretty much every circuit on the calendar – what more can you ask from a driver?)

    3. Jenson Button

    (to be brutally honest, outperforming his teammate becomes less of an achievement and more of a formality when you look at Lewis’s dismal season. However, solid throughout and a couple of exceptional wins puts him third on my list).

    4. Fernando Alonso

    (not his most consistent season, but still able to drag every last ounce of potential of out his car most race weekends – plus deserves a top 5 placing based on determination and raw talent alone.)

    5. Lewis Hamilton

    (undoubtedly his worst season in F1, but despite that, still the only non-RB driver to usurp Vettel on a Saturday, and still exceptional on his few good days in 2011 or. China)

    6. Jaime Algesuari

    7. Nico Rosberg

    8. Adrian Sutil

    9. Paul di Resta

    10. Daniel Riccoardo

    Tbh some pretty uninspiring performances from no.4 downwards, to the extent that Mr Mylander would have quite easily slotted into this list based on his steady, unremarkable handling of the safety car…

    I had assumed this was the criteria people were choosing their top 5 drivers of the year on earlier. No wonder I was amazed that Hamilton and Webber figured on so many peoples’ lists.

    Steve L Reply:

    It’s a democracy – I am allowed an opinion & you are therefore welcome to disagree! For the record Hamilton ahead of Alonso as Alonso had no team mate to contend with really but still only won one race. My personal opinion was that I liked the way Hamilton finally got it together at the end of the season after his ‘brain fade’ & numerous faux pas. Button ahead of Vettel because his car was 2nd best & his victories in Canada & Japan were epic & the ones I most enjoyed watching live (in my opinion). The proof of the pudding will be in next season’s results if Red Bull are not as dominant & Ferrari & Mclaren can produce cars on par with RBR.

    My List is based on Race craft, how they coped when things weren’t going right. Butt also on how the drivers presented themselves in interview and to the fans, and something I like to call fairplay and Respect. Moving of the racing line and back on to it is fine IF you don’t cry about it when someone does it to you, if you give a driver space then you can expect the same, something like that.
    1. Button
    Won the two trickiest Races Hungary and Canada, kept a cool head when needed and also had some fantastic laps and overtakes. Always seemed to be smiling and happy, gave other drivers room to race.
    2. Alonso
    Outperformed a dog of a Ferrari, only person to win a Race in a „bad“ car. Has defiantly matured at Ferrari, Webbers pass in Belgium was amazing and also could have only been done on Alonso or Button, they know exactly how much to fight for a position without going to far.
    3. Vettel
    Showed amazing skill in Qualifying should be number one on every ones list If it wasn’t for some comments and antics on the track. In 5 years he will be the best driver there ever was, when he grows up and acts his age.
    4. Kovalainen
    Consistently faster than his experienced teammate, made the T128 look better than it probably was. Fair and friendly
    5. Alguesuari
    Improved most over the Season, knows how to present himself in interviews
    6. Webber
    Was a perfect number2 driver, had bad luck all Season. Showed what he’s capable of in Belgium.
    7. B Senna
    Epic first Race in Italy, in a car that was losing more and more ground over the Season. In my opinion (doesn’t count for ****) unfairly punished in Brazil. Could have had a great race. More of a Prost than a Senna
    8. DiResta
    I think he outperformed his teammate in his rooky season even if points don’t agree. Beat both ToroRosos in comparable car. Expect great thing from him in the future.
    9. Ricciardo
    Did nothing spectacular, but what do you expect in a HRT, also made no massive mistakes. Drove in two Series and still out qualified his Teammate. Deserves his drive at ToroRoso
    10. Hamilton
    Like Vettel would be much higher up but made to many mistakes. Only just made top10. Another example of a driver with fantastic abilities who I can’t respect for things he says and does.

    domination and team orders..

    5.Ricciardo also was quick in FP1 with STR

    Since doing the top 5 I have looked more in depth at the McLaren drivers and seen that both drivers significantly underperformed their car. Taking into mechanical retirements, Button only achieved 84.4% of the car’s known potential, Hamilton 66.4%. Compared to Vettel’s score of 97.5% and Alonso’s score of 95.5% it is clear they did not do anywhere near as well as they could have. However, I have elevated them on account of their sensational wins at Germany and Japan. I also only included drivers who were in for the full season, which is why Ricciardo, my #5 driver in the top five list, is not included.

    Cheers for the book James, really high quality and fantastic read. Amazing how much things from the start of the season have slipped the mind!

    Anyways, to business, and having looked at the season as a whole in a more informed manner after the book…

    1 Button
    2 Vettel
    3 Alonso
    4 Kovalainan
    5 Rosberg
    6 Hamilton
    7 Di Resta
    8 Perez
    9 Sutil
    10 Alguersuari

    I think only the first three remained same from my top 5 list. Can’t judge based on if they were all in same car though, the difference in cars is a large part of why some have had outstanding season’s and others poor. This is my top ten of the season based on how they performed with what they had.

    I maybe biased with Hamilton, however given equal machinery I certainly rank him above vettel. However & Probably Alonso and Hamilton might be on equals as well.

    The nature of this contest, in its essence, asks who the most complete drivers in the field are today. So, if everyone was driving the RB 7 chassis, then this is how I would see the season unfold:

    1. Alonso
    2. Vettel
    3. Button
    4. Hamilton
    5. Webber

    I don’t understand your logic. In the championship, diving the same cars,
    Rosberg out scored Schumacher
    Kobayashi out scored Perez
    Sutil out scored Di Resta
    Why would those results be any different if they all drove a Red Bull?

    [Reply]

    Adil Reply:

    There’s an element of subjectivity in my list. Fundamentally, though outscored by their teammates, I believe that Schumacher, Perez and DiResta are the stronger, more complete drivers. Rosberg will never be the driver that Schumacher was (and might still be), while Perez and DiResta had better rookie seasons than their more seasoned teammates.

    So, perhaps not 100% logical, but still with some method to my madness.

    1. Sebastian Vettel

    2. Fernando Alonso

    Not much to choose between these two. Both thoroughly dominated their team-’mates’. I gave no.1 to Vettel as I’d say he made the fewest mistakes, and always delivered when it mattered most.

    3. Jenson Button

    4. Lewis Hamilton

    I’d also say not much between these two. Hamilton had a poor year by his standards, but he still had 3 remarkable wins in an inferior car, and was the only person putting pressure on Vettel in most of the qualis. I put Button at no.3 as he had his best ever performance this year (better even than his Brawn year IMO), obviously he also got more points than Hamilton, and was more consistent throughout the year.

    5. Heikki Kovalainen

    6. Nico Rosberg

    Yet again, it was very tough to place these two, as I feel both got the maximum possible from their cars. Both were consistently better than their team-mates, though this was to a more marked degree with Kovalainen (albeit against a weaker team-mate). With such a gap to the cars ahead, it is to the credit of both drivers that they kept so close. I gave no.5 to Kovalainen as I felt he showed more all-round consistency, barely putting a foot wrong when qualifying, starting, or racing.

    7. Nick Heidfeld

    8. Jaime Alguersuari

    I think Heidfeld deserved to keep his drive till the end of the year, and had no trouble putting him at no.7. To score almost the same points as the ‘team leader’, in only 2/3 of the races, is no mean feat. Alguersuari had a solid year, and showed a big improvement on his previous showings – he clearly bested Buemi. I’d put him at no.8, and am keeping my fingers crossed that he gets a drive for next year.

    9. Michael Schumacher

    10. Paul Di Resta

    I thought Schumacher, despite being consistently behind his team-mate, had a much better year than his come-back year. He was pretty miserable in qualifying, but the way he always made up for it at the start and in the race puts him at no.9 in my list. Di Resta takes the last spot as, despite scoring fewer points than his team-mate, he was generally more consistent. His strategy was often hampered as his team hedged their bets, but he seemed to cope well with every situation he was put in.

    As a Ferrari fan it hurt not putting Felipe there but he just didn’t do anything impressive this year. Apologies to Sutil and Di Resta, but there were just so many good drives from the aforementioned racers.

    For the performances with their respective cars and their approach to te season with their teams.

    Alonso was stunning in a car which was not as good as the McLaren let alone the Red Bull. The worlds best driver for sure. Button and Vettel were both brilliant. Vettel was superb all year but he had to beat Webber as the car pretty much guaranteed he could beat the other top teams over the course of the season. It’s hard to understand how good he really is simply because the car is so good, but he certainly dominated Webber.

    Hamilton made too many errors but when he sorts himself out he can beat them all even without the best car.

    I thought Bruno Senna was superb considering how late in the season he got in the car and how little experience he has.

    Started giving some consideration to this, but after glancing down the replies I though “Why bother?” Any results are going to be based to a great extent on favouritism and hate, and skewed by results which put Schumi at the top of the list, which exclude Button from the top ten, or which suggest thst Liuzzi would beat Hamilton in identical machinery.

    I’ll view the results with slight interest but without any illusions as to their accuracy.

    Of course, it’s all a bit of silly season festive fun, so;

    Alonso
    Vettel
    Button
    Hamilton
    Rosberg
    Schumacher

    Ted the Mechanic Reply:

    I haven’t seen many with Schumi at the top nor many with Liuzzi listed, so perhaps your fears are unfounded. My biggest concern is the number putting Button ahead of Alonso and Vettel. But that’s what it’s all about I suppose – if I based my top 10 on personality rather than 2011 performance then I probably would also. But it’s still hard to be totally objective…

    Your list is very similar to mine coincidentally.

    Objectively, subjective lists generally make less and less sense past the top (or bottom, or both) handful but, for once, why not.

    1-10, something like:

    Rosberg
    Di Resta

    Ok, its the drivers in the same cars this year and no national allegiance. Why then is Paul Di Resta ranked so many times above Adrian Sutil then, when in fact they were in the same cars and Sutil came out easily ahead on points this year??

    Not much separating my first 3 but
    1 Alonso (destroyed Massa and got a win in a rubbish car)
    2 Button (exceptional race wins in 2nd best car)
    3 Vettel (The car and Webber’s tyre problems made him look like Superman)
    4 Rosberg (Vettel in a Mercedes, never put a foot wrong)
    5 Schumacher (A few bad passes let him down but exceptional race pace)
    6 Hamilton (Should be number 1 but disastrous year, still showed enough brilliance for 6th)
    7 Riccardo (by far the most overlooked of 2011)
    8 Kovalainen(really need to see him against someone other than a demotivated Trulli to see how much he has improved since Hamilton days)
    9 Sutil (once he got to grips with the 2011 tyres some great performances)
    10 Webber (like Sutil had problems adjusting to new tyres but still think he would have beaten the rest in the same car.

    4. Alonso – gritty, tenacious season.
    5. Hamilton – supposed worst season in F1 still brought 3 victories.
    6. Sutil – best outside of top 4 – didn’t deserve the chop.
    7. Di Resta – promising.
    8. Heidfeld – victim of ageism / “new blood” hype. should have stayed for the season.
    9. Alguesuari – Finally started to deliver on potential -again like Sutil dropped for some fresh meat.
    10. Rosberg – couldn’t build on podium finishes last year.

    1. Sebastian Vettel – Can’t give it to anyone else. He was almost flawless.
    2. Fernando Alonso – Relentless consistency. Got the absolute maximum from a pretty poor offering from Ferrari, as evidenced by his beating Hamilton in the championship.
    3. Jenson Button – Close between JB and Alonso, but Alonso sneaks it because Jenson was not all that strong in qualifying, although he did show improvement towards the end of the year.
    4. Heikki Kovalainen – Seems to be flourishing out of the spotlight. Like Alonso, got the maximum from his car and (on pure speed) utterly annihilated his teammate.
    5. Adrian Sutil – Wrong decision by FI to drop him in my opinion. The arrival of di Resta seemed to push him up to a new level.
    6. Daniel Ricciardo – One to watch. If he makes it to Red Bull he will be more than a match for Vettel. Consistently beat not only Liuzzi but also d’Ambrosio.
    7. Mark Webber – Disappointing year in terms of results, but proved he is as fast and determined as ever when coming through the field. His breathtaking move on Alonso through Eau Rouge stands out as one of the moments of the year.
    8. Lewis Hamilton – Like Webber, disappointing year overall, but his win in Germany gets him into my top 10 by itself. Top drawer.
    9. Jaime Alguersuari – Came on very strong in the latter half of the year. Think he would have been a better choice than Vergne for Toro Rosso.
    10. Paul di Resta – Don’t think anyone could expect any more from him in his rookie season. Would surely have beaten Sutil more often if not for poor strategy decisions in some races.

    Vettel – had best car and used it fully, who else could be 1st?
    Button – regularly beat at least one Red Bull and a fast previous WDC in equal equipment.
    Alonso – never, ever gave up and always out drives the car.
    Hamilton – his worst season so far but the only driver to challenge and beat Red Bull to pole and also lead them home in races, too.
    Webber – struggled managing his tyres compared to Vettel but had three poles, a win and a great drive early on in China
    Kovalainen – easily the best driver amongst the “new” teams and like Alonso, has more speed than the car.
    Rosberg – has again beaten the most successful driver of all time with the same resources. Given how driver retirement age appears to be on the up, I wonder if he could still clinche a WDC?
    Schumacher – despite the age disadvantage to the rest of the grid, Herr Schumacher demonstrated that his commitment to racing is un-diminished – Mercedes-Benz, PLEASE give both him & Rosberg a competitive car next year!
    di Resta – a comparatively late debut to F1 has done nothing to slow di Resta, keeping his far more experienced team mate looking over his shoulder throughout the season.
    Heidfeld – stepped into Kubica’s seat and was unfairly (IMHO) sacked by Renault. Quick Nick got more out of that temperamental car than any of his subsequent replacements showing substance over style.

    Oh, somebody noticed! Actually, I got the idea from reversed grids in series like GP2 or WTCC or whateva. Imagine that, at the end of the season, top 10 positions are reversed and the guy who’s P10 is declared champion. That would be whole lotta fun. I think. Yes?

    I’ve been looking at the more interesting answers and trying to work out their posters’ rationale :) and see if I can figure out what they value or what their system is. I was really pleased to have worked out yours and got a little excited :)

    That would be a whole ‘nother kind of cutthroat, to have everyone fighting for 10th. Strategies would be crazy, especially since if you finished 9th, you finished 2nd, but if you finished 11th, you finished 11th.

    hard to choose between button and vettel but i think i have to give it to vettel as he just has so much speed and would always end up at the sharp end of the grid while button would always have have to fight his way up.

    vettel
    button
    alonso – took a while to get to grips with the rubber but when he did he got the most out of the car
    rosberg –
    hamilton – off his best but nobody can touch him when he’s on it (probably)
    kovi – Finnally found his form in F1
    Di Resta – inexperiance at top level hurt, but i think next season should be a big one
    perez – intelligent fast, but new
    schumacher – Lack of relentless testing hurts him as hes not able to refine, and he will have lost speed with age, but is still probably the hardest racer out there
    Alguersuari – was up and coming

    I’m a huge Alonso fan but Vettel was brilliant this season, here is my driver order and rating out of 10.

    1. Vettel 10/10 – Perfect all season.
    2. Alonso 8/10 – Had a poor start to season.
    3. Button 7/10 – Ended strongly.
    4. Hamilton 7/10 – Had some good wins.
    5. Rosberg 6/10 – Had a good season.

    1) Fernando Alonso – every time we went onboard with him it took my breath away. I was impressed with how much he fought for every inch he took.
    2) Sebastian Vettel – What can you say? His job may not have been so challenging but he performed it nearly flawlessly.
    3) Jenson Button – Very good year. Car and tires suited him and he made the most out of it.
    4) Jerome d’Ambrosio – If points were awarded for every position, and not just for the top 10, he would have outscored Glock by 25%. Because they are not, he’s been too easy to overlook. Outstanding. Very impressed with his consistency and reliability. Hope to see him again soon.
    5) Daniel Ricciardo – tossed in midseason in weakest car on the grid. His learning curve was sharp and impressive. Best of luck to him next year.

    About these I feel less strongly, but you want 10! The placings are somewhat arbitrary.
    6) Heikki Kovalainen
    7) Sergio Perez
    8) Jaime Alguersuari – Maybe higher if he had been stronger in the first half of the season, but I think his teammate’s run of bad luck flatters him a bit.
    9) Nico Rosberg
    10) Nick Heidfeld

    8. Kovalainen ( Smashed Jarno )
    9. Ricciardo ( Got up to speed very fast in a HRT)
    10. Schumacher ( Seemed to be better in race trim than NR )

    I am basing my decisions based on the whole season but with more weight towards the end of the season as I believe thats when most of the drivers had got on top of any tyre / technical issues.

    Very hard to judge a lot of the midfield drivers as they are so evenly matched in most cases so I went for drivers that -

    a) Were rookies that matched ( not in points but from my observations ) their more experienced teammates.

    b) Destroyed their teammates in races where all things were relatively even strategy wise.

    c) Improved a lot compared to last season or the beginning of this season.

    d) Clearly outperformed the machinery they were given.

    James, I hope as part of the follow up to this article you are going to publish your top ten drivers too.

    Given we have already done the top 5 I think we should have all stuck to those and added the next 5 in below that…….

    Hence this is my top 10:

    1. Sebastian Vettel
    2. Fernando Alonso
    3. Jenson Button
    4. Jaime Algesuari
    5. Heikki Kovalienen
    6. Adrian Sutil
    7. Nico Rosberg
    8. Paul Di Resta
    9. Mark Webber
    10.Sergio Perez

    Vettel was just untouchable and has to be number 1 for his ability to pull out fantastic pole winning qualification laps, for making very few mistakes, and for using the car and tyres at his disposal to their very utmost.

    I know James that your top 5 had Alonso and Button reversed, but I still think Alonso was awesome considering how much worse his car was than either the Red Bull or the McLaren, and he consistently beating at least one of each of the top two cars at most races.

    But race and drive of the season has to go to Jenson for Canada, that has to be one of the best races of all time and to win so close to the end of the final lap had me running round the house punching the air and shouting, the last time that happened England won the 2005 test at Edgbaston.

    Many people are giving Alonso the nod over Button based on being in an inferior car. It’s true to say I am biased as a Button fan, but I have a huge amount of respect for Alonso. I personally think he’s probably the best on the grid. But what does it for me with Button over Alonso is that Alonso never had to beat his team mate who lets face it, is no competition to anyone at the moment and yet Button beat the driver who in his rookie year beat the then WDC Alonso. I know that that year is not without its controversies, but again, Alonso was choking on the fact that he didn’t have a team mate who was prepared to pull over and let him past when he shook his rattle.

    Button passed more cars and his wins were far more challenging and entertaining than Alonso’s

    I am just doing my usual defense.

    1= Button
    1= Alonso
    3 Heiki
    4 Kobayashi
    5 Algersuari
    6 Vettel
    7 Sutil
    8 Rosberg
    9 Schumacher
    10 Di Resta

    It’s how I average out rather than imagine them in equal machinery, and it’s just an opinion.

    8 Alguisari

    10 Schumi

    I hope there is going to be some method to throw out the obvious partisan votes intended to manipulate the final rankings. Lists that place Schumacher at the top? or completely omit Alonzo and/or Vettel? or rank Webber above Vettel? Personally I found it very hard to order the top three but I can respect any list that has the same top three, regardless of the order listed

    What about all the British votes that has someone who was clearly beaten by his team mate in the same car ahead of the person who beat him just because of all the British media hype I guess.

    1. Raikkonen – for doing the best thing other than winning a WDC… getting a better car for next year
    2. Senna
    3. Sutil
    4. Algersuari
    5. D’Ambrosio
    6. Buemi
    7. Hiedfeld
    8. Barichello
    9. Petrov
    10. Davidson for some great commentary

    Do I win?

    In all seriousness though, I feel this is most pointless as reading through what people have written it appears that the best drivers are just the ones who get the better coverage. No one cares about D’Ambrosio beating Glock several times despite being in his rookie year. Poeple think of Kovalainen because he was mentioned. The front runners are mentioned alot, the rest aren’t.

    It’s like many put Moss on their top 5/10 or whatever of all time, not because they think he is better than Ascari, but becasue Moss is mentioned as the best who never won a WDC title and hence people stick him in lists that he doesn’t belong.

    An example from above.

    Sutil has recently been mentioned rather highly due to his axing for guy-who-didn’t-get-a-drive-last-year-but-probably-should-have-but-not-in-the-place-of-2011-Sutil/Hulkenberg, and so people are mentioning him rediculosly high up.

    In the first dozen or so he even gets a mention as 3rd best driver of the year!

    Schumacher is another one, getting several top 5 mentions for getting beaten by his teammate!

    Added to that it appears what qualifies is different depending on who you are, whether it is ‘good for being a rookie’, overall, compared to teammates, over the season or over what they didin the season.

    If there is one reason why you should read James’ blog for analysis rather than the 200+ posters here, this is why.

    Here is my list considering all had the same race-craft:
    1) Alonso – What he did with the average ferrari is a proof enough for what he could have done with a Redbull at his disposal. I am not a big fan of alonso, but his sheer determination and skills are amazing
    2) Vettel – “Qualification Master”, but would have struggled during races, if all behind him had the same car
    3)Button – Calculative genius, cool customer.
    4)Webber – always a dark horse
    5)Hamilton – Would have placed him after Vettel, had he not been so distracted this year. Oh by the way his nemesis Massa also would have ensured he remained in this spot
    5)Di Resta – “Amazing Rookie”, who is fast
    6)Rosberg – Consistent fighter
    7)Kovalinen – Same like Rosberg
    8)Sutil
    9)Algersuari
    10) Perez

    How tough is this? “The key to this is to imagine the drivers in equal cars and then look at the job they did week in week out with what they had to work with – who did the best job in 2011?”
    Given the mediocre car and poor hard tire performance, Alonso got the most out of the car.
    Button did an outstanding job, yet the McLaren had a massive performance advantage over the Ferrari. Nevertheless, Button’s performance was superb. Vettel is Champ, yet had best car by far.
    So, 1. Alonso, 2. Button, 3. Vettel, 4.Rosberg, 5. Webber, 6. Hamilton, 7. Kov, 8. Alguersuari, 9. Sutil, 10. Paul

    1. Button – For outscoring his highly rated team mate & the magnificent overtake of Vettel in Canada.
    2. Vettel – For practically controlling the entire season.
    3. Alonso – For winning 1 race & finishing 3rd overall despite having a sub par car
    4. Hamilton – The only other driver besides Red Bull to be on pole & for leading the most amount of laps this season after Vettel
    5. Rosberg
    6. Kovalainen
    7. Algesauri – Brilliant 2nd half of the season
    8. Sutil
    9. Kobayashi
    10. Vetrov – He finished 3rd in the 1st race of the season. Had Renault developed the car as well as Mclaren, Vetrov would have featured much higher this season.

    5) Hamilton – Mentally wasnt there. Immature racing at times, gold at others.
    6) Di Resta – Mature and clever driver for a ‘rookie’. Beaten by teammate though. 8) Kobyashi – Beat the torro rossos and a force india.
    9) Kovalainen – Beat experienced team mate, mentally positive.
    10)Rosberg – Beat schuey no worries. Lacks spark.

    James, I got my book. Thanks. Looking forward to read it this weekend.

    In regards to this article, are you going to take into consideration the Driver Of The Day votes on this website from your articles after each race or just the votes in this article?

    It won’t be looking good for Vettel if you do, since I don’t remember him ever being the choice for The Driver Of The Day on any of 2011 races.

    There wasn’t a huge amount between the top 3. But whilst vettel was superb this season, his car was near enough
    perfect. He was made to look better than he was because mark struggled so badly with understanding the tyres, and also the countless reliability problems with his car. Vettel is clearly a good qualifier and maximising the use of the engine modes in Q3 allowed him to usually start pole and dictate the race. So rather than vettel outperforming hugely I see mark underperforming greatly, not all his fault.

    Alonso may have lost out to massa in a few qualifying sessions but the Ferrari was so slow in qualifying trim he resorted to taking a few risks. His races in a comparatively useless car have been nothing short of amazing, relentless.

    My view is that if vettel and alonso swapped cars this year alonso would have comfortably won the title as well but vettel wouldn’t have been able to match FA for points. All hypothetical, but the RB7 allowed vettel to have a straight forward weekend time and time again which mark could have had if he hadn’t woefully underperformed.

    1: Vettel. I’d accuse him of making the front of most races a boring place, but he barely put a foot wrong and drove far more maturely than last year.
    2: Button. Consistency combined with some wonderful speed.
    3: Alonso. Dragged the Ferrari higher than it deserved to be.
    4: Rosberg. Continued to beat Schumacher, though MS is regaining some of his speed.
    5: Kovalainen. Showed some decent speed in a slow car. I hope the team join the midfield next year.
    6: Alguersuari. Still only 21, and showing some great consistency and mature driving. Hope he doesn’t end up on the great driver scrap heap.
    7: Di Resta. An accomplished debut season. Needs to perform again next year to justify FI dropping Sutil I think.
    8: Hamilton. Some moments of brilliance, but didn’t get his head together.
    9: Perez. A solid maiden season, with some interesting strategic moves.
    10: Webber. Didn’t get it hooked up like he did last year, and seems demotivated.

    If the one car for all would be special taylored for Schumacher, Schumacher. Best overtaker and impossible to overtake if you dare for your life.

    So even the one car for all is a bit tricky, still some would like it and some not.

    1. Vettel – not sure anyone would’ve beaten him in the same car this year.
    2. Alonso – amazing spirit and speed.
    3. Rosberg – often qualified higher than he should.
    4. Button – another top class season but not always on the pace.
    5. Di Resta – beaten by Sutil but impressive.
    6. Hamilton – incredible, half of the time.
    7. Schumacher – poor in qualifying but so much overtaking.
    8. Perez – beat his team mate, star potential.
    9. Ricciardo – another for the future.
    10. Senna – did well, given his basic experience and very limited running before being drafted in.

    PS Strange that di Resta is figuring so strongly in many listings. It is quite possible he will come good in a year or two, but I wouldn’t rank him among the top 10 just yet.
    Also, when making my list I also figured in leadership ability, something many current F1 drivers are severely lacking.

    Alonso – Dogged even if he gives up…
    di Resta – excellent for a rookie
    Weber – put up with being sidelined
    Kovalainen – got best of inferior car
    Sutil – socks up
    Rosberg – stuffing Schum
    Massa – another sidelined

    Interesting article on this very subject on autosport. They did the very same for the team bosses and this is what they came up with:

    1. Vettel
    2. Button
    3. Alonso
    4. Hamilton
    5. Rosberg
    6. Webber
    7. Di Resta
    8. Sutil
    9. Kovalainen
    10. Schumacher

    The annual team principals’ verdict is compiled by getting the top ten driver rankings of every boss, which are kept secret, and then converting their rankings into the F1 points’ system (25-18-15-12-10-8-6-4-2-1).

    The final scores are added up to discover which driver the team bosses overall believed had done the best job throughout the campaign.

    voters were as follows:

    For some reason Scuderia Toro Rosso declined to take part.

    1:Button – beating a driver expected to be a multi World Champion and coming second in a car that was quite often 3rd best on the day, and an epic drive in Canada forcing Vettel into perhaps his only real mistake on race day!
    2:Alonso – dragged a Ferrari around faster than it should have and those lightning starts.
    3:Vettel – pretty perfect, but he did have a quite decent car advantage which he used very well
    4:Webber – kept his outlook in life pretty chipper even though he was trounced, and managed to come 3rd in the championship
    5:Kovaleinen – always happy, smiling and relaxed and I’m pretty sure this is what kept his team going at times…
    6:Rosberg – pretty reliable, but often did become a bit anonymous in the races.
    7:Perez – beat a highly rated team mate well, and if it wasn’t for his accident might have figured even higher
    8:Di Resta – could be a bit dour, but pretty realistic and probably rookie of the year. Needs to build on his results however and he hit too many things early doors.
    9:Alguersuari – shame he’s currently without a drive, was pretty impressive tail end of season
    10:Hamilton – his worst season, first time he was beaten by a team mate, hit many cars many times…I really wasn’t impressed with his overall performance…BUT he came 4th, scored plenty of points and won 3 GP’s. Needs to grow up somehow, not blame other people and learn that sometimes the tortoise beats the hare. Was humbled by Button, especially at Monza when he failed to pass Schumacher, but then let Button pass him and Schumacher in a couple of corners. Deserves a place in the top ten though because on his (admittedly too few this season) day he is blinding fast

    Audax Reply:

    Possibly should explain the absences of Hamilton and Massa, whilst including Webber…

    Hamilton: On his day, Hamilton was awesome. But his days were too few and far between during 2011, and the number of times he was investigated (and subsequently penalised) by the stewards was far too high to earn a top 10 spot for me.

    Massa: Clearly wasn’t achieving to the levels he did prior to his accident, and clearly wasn’t getting anywhere near as much out of the car as Alonso was. Only notable achievements were the few times he managed to find himself in front of Alonso and ruining the race for the much quicker Alonso.

    Webber: Got trounced by Vettel who was on top form all season, but showed excellent race-craft and overtaking ability. Only 1 major blot on his copybook (Monza), and showed steady progress through the season getting on top of the tyres. Also worth noting the car-affected slow starts prior to being able to revert to 2010 procedure made things more difficult for him than it should have been.

    5 – Hamilton
    6 – Schumacher
    7 – Webber
    8 – Kovalainen
    9 – Heidfeld
    10 – Perez

    Button drove better than he did in 2009, and was often the most consistent man out there, as well as being surprisingly quick. It was hard to choose between him and Alonso for No. 1 spot, but JB clinches it thanks to Canada, the greatest race I have ever seen.

    Vettel did what he should have done with that car advantage and a hampered team mate, and on the few instances he was put under pressure he caved like he did in 2010. But, he is blindingly fast and stuck to a winning strategy, and was in the right place to take advantage of it.

    Rosberg was always as quick as the car would allow, and save for a few races in the second half of the season he safely had the legs on Schumi. Bit of a ‘mare for Hamilton, as he showed flashes of how he can be better than anyone, but far more of impetuosity I really hope he curbs for next year.

    Schumacher was much improved on last year, and there were traces of his former self. It seemed like he enjoyed it more this year, which showed in his performances. Webber had a few strong performances, but it was really difficult to gauge how well he was actually driving this year when his many issues are taken into account. Heikki made Trulli look like he belonged at the back of the grid, and seemed to be relishing the challenge. Heidfeld’s accomplishments didn’t seem that great when he was booted out of the Renault team mid-season, but after seeing how that team unravelled it’s clear how much of a good job he was doing.

    And finally, Perez was rookie of the season, just shading Di Resta. Both were good, but I’d say it’s more impressive to hold your own against Kobayashi than it is against Sutil.

    Thanks for the great blog this year James!

    Hmm, well, the top 5 should be the same as last week!

    1) Vettel
    2) Button
    3) Alonso
    4) Kovalainen
    5) Sutil
    6) Hamilton – he did still win three races! … in an equal car, I’d still back him to win the championship. His problem is he overdrives sometimes when in an inferior car, and gets into trouble – if all the cars were the same, that’s less likely to be a problem!
    7) Alguersauri – so unlucky to be out of a seat. May be getting some sympathy points!
    8) Di Resta – the best Rookie
    9) Webber – even when getting thrashed by a team mate, I still think he’d be in the top 10 in the world overall. Technically Massa should have a similar reason, but he’s been so mentally destroyed, if the midfield get closer to Ferrari next year, he could be in a lot of trouble. Webber on the other hand was still pulling off great, gutsy moves on the best drivers in the world. Just needs to sort out starts, and not be out of position so often!
    10) Schumacher – beaten by Rosberg on points, but I think raced better than his team-mate this year. Still think if Mercedes produce a winning car, it would be Schumacher & not Rosberg that would get the victory.

    Not so easy actually, specially past the top 3. It is difficult not to be bias in judging performances. Webber? His year was not that bad, but seeing the gap to his teammate, even including his misfortunes. I could not find a place for him in my top 10. I am glad to see many have included schumi. While he still was not at the level of performance one would expect of him, he did better than last year. By a good margin too. I placed Hamilton 7th, but I am not sure he did better than the ones bellow him. Still, when in his right mind, he showed his capacities. Next year he has to do better though. Perez is my close 11th…Marc

    There is at least one top ten on this page that places Hamilton ABOVE Button. I am not sure how you could take that seriously considering the premise for the choice is how would they perform relative to each other if they had been in equal machinery.

    Button and Hamilton HAD equal machinery (supposedly) and Button came out on top in that one.

    The top six teams had the top 11 drivers, the only driver in a top 6 team not to be in the top 12 was Paul Di Resta. Consequently any analysis needs to look at how well a driver compares to their team mate like finishing ahead and scoring more points as true criteria. Generally better drivers tend to find positions in the better teams so the total number of points scored needs also to be considered. I used the following three criteria to assess the objective value of each driver (except Karun and Pedro)

    TMF= Percentage of finishes ahead of team mate where both team mates finished the race. Vettel finished ahead of his team mate 88% of the time followed by Alonso (87%), Kovalainen (75%) and Heidfeld (71%).

    PRF=Points per Race Finish (equalises for reliability issues and being taken out by other drivers). Clearly the better the car the more points that can be scored per race finish with Vettel scoring almost 22 points per race finish, followed by Button at almost 16 points per race finish and Webber, Alonso and Hamilton all scoring slightly over 14 points per race finish. There is a big gap to Massa who scored about half of the points per race finish compared to the above three drivers (7 points per race finish). The two Mercedes drivers were similar and finished with slightly over 5 points per race finish with Heidfeld finishing with slightly over 4 points per race finish and almost doubling the next driver who was Sutil with just over 2 points per race finish.

    ICT=Index of Contribution to Team: a scaled ratio calculated on total contribution of points to the team by a driver versus the rest of the points the team got and how often the team mate finished ahead of the other driver. This is scaled so -1 means complete domination by a team mate through to +1 where the driver totally dominated their teammate. The driver that faired worst in Index of Contribution to Team was Senna at -0.8691, while Massa and Webber were the next lowest scorers with -0.7253 and -0.6967 respectively. The top three divers in ICT scores were Fernando Alonso with 0.7253, Vettel with 0.6967 and Heidfeld with 0.66156.

    This analysis did reveal other interesting results Kobayashi scored well compared to his team mate as did Glock and Ricciardo. Where there were few points scored the points-based analyses become very sensitive, like in the case of Williams where there were only three scoring events so Barrichello came to dominate Maldonado. One change of race result (e.g. had Maldonado not crashed out at Monaco the results would have totally been reversed, nevertheless Rubens did finish ahead of his team mate almost 57% of the time. Similarly where the team mates did not score any points the relative positions that the drivers finished then influenced the results in the ICT so Kovalainen dominated over Trulli, Glock over D’Ambrosio and Ricciardo over Liuzzi.

    While you can make a case that Webber, despite being destroyed by his team mate, did return a good amount of points per race and should be considered in the top 10, you cannot argue the same for Massa who finished with half the points per race finish of the guys above him. On paper the two Mercedes drivers finished very close to each other, however, the team deftly swapped positions of their drivers on two occasions in favour of Schumacher (Spa was very unsubtle, and Monza rather more subtle). This lead me to consider Rosberg in the top 10 and Schumacher out of the top 10 and also Rosberg was ahead of Schumacher on both the ICT and TMF scores.

    Integrating these scores is difficult but the following 10 drivers did stand out above the rest (Vettel, Alonso, Button, Lewis Hamilton, Sutil, Kovalainen, Alguersuari, Rosberg, Heidfeld, and Kobayashi) in the sense that they almost always occupied the top half of each of the scores and scored really well in at least one category. It needs to be remembered that having strong and equal drivers like McLaren impacted negatively on the ICT score. Consequently I used the accumulative ranks of the Points per Race Finish and Index of Contribution to Team and came up with the final list:

    1 Sebastian Vettel (Deservedly world champion)
    2 Fernando Alonso (Exceeded the car’s form)
    3 Nick Heidfeld (Biased by early performance)
    4 Jenson Button (Bettered his team mate)
    5 Kamui Kobayashi (Good early performance)
    6 Adrian Sutil (Strong late performance)
    7 Nico Rosberg (Consistent overall performance)
    8 Lewis Hamilton (Too many costly mistakes)
    9 Heikki Kovalainen (Good in a weak car)
    10 Jaime Alguersuari (Solid overall results)

    This objective approach mostly worked out except for Heidfeld (hugely flattered by the poor performance of his team mates). Kobayashi was a bit too high against my own subjective feelings, while Lewis should have been higher since he was competing against a strong team mate. My subjective (interpreted) ranking would consequently be:

    1 Sebastian Vettel
    2 Fernando Alonso
    3 Jenson Button
    4 Adrian Sutil
    5 Lewis Hamilton
    6 Nico Rosberg
    7 Nick Heidfeld
    8 Heikki Kovalainen
    9 Kamui Kobayashi
    10 Jaime Alguersuari

    Adrian and Jaime should not have lost their seats as they bettered their team mates and accounted for themsleves rather well(personally I think Massa and Webber should have been dropped and Jaime and Sutil drafted into these positions respectively). The case for Nick is more complex as his team mate was Vitally who in term hugely bettered Bruno (who had issues and some three penalties from eight races), and the team fell-apart on both performance and leadership after sacking Heidfeld. In terms of the best rookie there was not much to choose from in terms of Perez and Di Resta, given that Di Resta had time in an F1 car last year and his more extensive past racing experience I would feel Perez performance was marginally better.

    Welcome back Kimi; hopefully you can inspire some other drivers to also just shut up and drive. (Talking to you Lewis and Felipe).

    After giving it some thought, It’s rather hard to tell how would anyone do in the “top” car, so I also considered what would each driver do, were they all in the slowest car.

    1.- Fernando Alonso. Clearly outperformed his ride.
    2.- Jenson Button. Delivered superbly throughout the season.
    3.- Sebastian Vettel. Took advantage of the fastest car in quali. Given a pinch of pressure, made some mistakes.
    4.- Heikki Kovalainen.
    5.- Jaime Alguersuari.
    6.- Lewis Hamilton.
    7.- Mark Webber.
    8.- Adrian Sutil.
    9.- Nico Rosberg
    10.- Bruno Senna.
