Debate: Describe each driver in one word

F1 drivers, Melbourne, 2007 | Ferrari MediaI came across this little game on The Times F1 blog a few months ago and I thought it would be a great way of looking back on the season.

The rules are simple: you have to describe every F1 driver using just one word for each.

Mine are below – now you have a go…

Fernando Alonso – Baffling
Lewis Hamilton – Outrageous
Giancarlo Fisichella – Anonymous
Heikki Kovalainen – Improving
Felipe Massa – Guileless
Kimi Raikkonen – Vindicated
Jenson Button – Dogged
Rubens Barrichello – Indifferent
Nick Heidfeld – Consistent
Robert Kubica – Fortunate
Ralf Schumacher – Joyless
Jarno Trulli – Unconvincing
David Coulthard – Dependable
Mark Webber – Cursed
Nico Rosberg – Blossoming
Alexander Wurz – Intelligent
Kazuki Nakajima – Erratic
Vitantonio Liuzzi – Unfavoured
Scott Speed – Unremarkable
Sebastian Vettel – Promising
Adrian Sutil – Potential
Christijan Albers – Rejected
Markus Winkelhock – Inexperienced
