  1. really hard to pick…
    the driving overall excluding the pit context can be: massa, kubica or alonso… hamilton, well he lacks a bit courtesy in driving if u ask me :p

  2. I look at the season and each driver had ups and downs, but Hamilton was on top in terms of combining consistency and success in one envelope. Alonso also had a good campaign- esp. considering what a hunk of junk the R28 was early in the season, but I still don’t think he outclassed Lewis. vettel also was great, and kudos to Heidfeld for (almost) finishing every Grand Prix this season.

    – Zebra (#9): What country are you from?

  3. Holy cow, even “decimated” drivers like Kovalainen, Piquet and Bourdais get votes?

    I can understand that people could rate a guy in a slower car higher than the WDC. On the other hand, if a driver gets annihilated all season by his team mate (with the same material), how can the guy on the wrong end of the ass wooping be “the best”?

  4. vettel was the extreme hero

  5. I’m form Poland so I can’t choose Kubica, because it will be too simple, heh. I think that the best driver in this season was Alonso – he’s got worse car than McLaren,, Ferrari and BMW, but he won twice so he proved that drivers skills are more important.

  6. it’s Robert Kubica

  7. Koo-bit-sa is THE BEST :)

  8. Two days ago, Alonso was asked this same question and he said Kubica. So he agrees with you guys. :)

  9. Robert Kubica and Fernando Alonso ;-)

  10. Lucky isn’t it that the WDC is not elected :) It is a good thing the best driver is still determined on the race track by scoring the highest points rather than getting the most votes. I mean, Times voted Alonso, now you guys vote Kubica – don’t you see there must be something wrong in your voting if your method does not produce the same results as the generally accepted technical method as adopted by FIA.

  11. The WDC is heavily influenced by the quality of the driver’s cars and to a lesser extent luck (If the rain had held of for 1 minute longer at the end of the race in Brazil who do you think would be WDC?).

    Its perfectly legitimate to speculate who is the most skilled/drove the best races given the car that they we’re in. Lets face it the WDC gave us a man who has trouble with red lights for a champion. Even I can stop at red lights.
