Readers’ Top 5 driver vote – update
Posted By: James Allen  |  21 Nov 2009   |  8:33 pm GMT  |  159 comments

The JA on F1 reader competition to name your top five drivers of the season has been a big success so far and we have had 870 entries in the last few days.

The competition runs until next week and the winners will be announced on Tuesday 24th. For those who missed it first time around – anyone who names the same top five drivers of the season, in the same order as me will get a free signed copy of my review of the 2009 season, ” F1 2009: A revolutionary year”.

There’s a limited print run of these books and, as one reader pointed out, with Brawn’s name and colour scheme set to disappear due to the Mercedes takeover, this book, with their car on the cover, will be a bit of a collectors’ item.

It’s generally agreed that this is a really hard year to judge who did the best job. To help you out with your choices. Autosport.com released the results of the team principals’ vote and their collective top five is as follows:

1. Sebastian Vettel
2. Jenson Button
3. Lewis Hamilton
4. Fernando Alonso
5. Rubens Barrichello

Meanwhile the authoritative Mark Hughes, my old buddy who used to help me and Martin Brundle in the commentary box, has gone for this top five:
1. Lewis Hamilton
2. Jenson Button
3. Sebastian Vettel
4. Mark Webber
5. Robert Kubica

Kubica? Not many have gone with him. Interesting.

Good luck!

Not necessarily my view but I’m expecting James to have some sort of anorak list anyway:

1. Button

2. Vettel

3. Webber

4. Barrichello

5. Raikkonen

number 5 could have been Kobayashi also for bringing some oomph to otherwise dull proceedings, I just don’t see how Raikkonen’s charge in the 2nd half can be ignored

Season 2009

1. Button – most points in the end, so this is obvious

2. Vettel

3. Hamilton

4. Raikkonen

5. Barrichello

Ok James, here is my top five:
