  1. Dont get me wrong, im a big LH fan and was supporting him all season but –

    He wasnt the best driver of the year!! Are you forgetting the 2 consecutive mistakes he made at Monza and Singapore that pretty much wrote him out of the championship race?

    IMO i would go for Kubica for being there or there abouts all season in a non championship winning car.

    Finding it hard to chose between Vettel and Fernando as #1.

  3. Decisions, decisions. Couldnt really decide between Hamilton, Alonso, Rosberg, and Kubica but went for the last one although I dont know if im 100% happy with the decision.

    My pick is Vettel. Fernando Alonso was very impressive in the second half of the season but the events of Hockenheim sullied his achievements. He was the only contender with a ‘passive’ team mate, where as the others were pushed hard by their team mates. Vettel at times had his moments of madness, and at Hungary resembled a child that had had his sweets swiped from him, but the statistics speak for themselves. No one came close to the number of pole positions Vettel achieved this year.
    His mistakes in Turkey and Belgium were big talking points, as was the breakdown in his relationship with Mark Webber, but the others were just as vunerable. Alonso made boo boo’s at Monaco and Spa, Hamilton screwed the pooch at Monza and crossed paths with Webber at Australia and Singapore. Mark Webber had a whole host of snafu’s, the biggest and most scary being his 170mph launch over Kovalainen’s Lotus at Valencia.
    So Vettel does it for me.

    Sakon Yamamoto (-1%, 0 Votes) :D

  6. For some reason I cant vote for my Driver of the Year? Using IE8, but doesnt work at all in either standard mode or compatibility view?

    KUBICA – no question. He deserves a world title now more than anyone.

    Mind you, if I could vote twice, Webber would have got my other one

    hmm…looking at overall season i think Alo. cos he made less mistakes then any other driver. he was clearly in slower car then red bull drivers and he was constantly throught season faster then felipe, about 0.2 0.3 seconds!only dark spot was germany but he was clearly “faster” then felipe there just ask R.Smedley:)

  9. I don’t know between Fernando, Lewis and Rosberg. Fernando’s second half was just supreme, Hamilton’s first half was msotly tremendous and Rosberg although hard to judge his actual pace didn’t make many -if any- mistakes in a car that really didn’t suit him.

    Typical UK bias. What has Hamilton done that out classes everybody else?

  11. himmatsj (@himmatsj) said on 22nd December 2010, 15:46

    How on earth is Sakon down with -4%….some sort of hack that be?

  12. kbcusa (@kbcusa) said on 22nd December 2010, 15:56

    Vettel won more races and a lot more polls than anyone else, out performed his teammate and won the world championship. What more do you need?

  13. kbcusa (@kbcusa) said on 22nd December 2010, 16:00

    Hamilton was clearly in the mix, but just as clearly was not a standout. English bias is, on the other hand, clearly evident here.

    • Keith Collantine (@keithcollantine) said on 22nd December 2010, 16:16

      This is getting a bit ridiculous now. You’re looking at three paragraphs and a list of poll options and calling that ‘bias’? Please.

      • kbcusa (@kbcusa) said on 22nd December 2010, 16:44

        Don’t get me wrong, I think Lewis is a great driver. I am a fan. But to say he had a better year than Vettel or Alonso, or maybe a couple of others is a stretch. Voting for the home town boy is understandable and happens everywhere, but an objective review does not put Lewis at the top of the heap. Not this year.

          Well… ask autosport about that, they ranked him No. 1 too, but let me ask you 1 question… if this is “british bias” then why isnt Button in 2nd place?

          or why wasnt David Coulthard never in the 1st spot in the years before?

    I voted for Kamui. It was a tough choice between him and Kubica. This is disregarding the car in the equation, which obviously tends to skew views easily on how well someone is driving. Kamui manhandled that thing around a lot of people this season. Considering passing seems to be a skill that shows up less and less in the field (save for guys like Hamilton), I give a lot of props to Koby for bringing the art back to life.

  15. Alonso. And I say that as a Hamilton fan who can’t stand Ferrari and what they did this year.
