2013 F1 seasonPosted on | Author Keith Collantine

Kimi Raikkonen, Lotus, Bahrain, 2013Jenson Button remains the favourite driver of most F1 Fanatic readers but Kimi Raikkonen is gaining rapidly.

Here’s who F1 Fanatic readers are supporting at the mid-point of the 2013 season.

Favourite drivers

Button has been on top of the F1 Fanatic driver popularity chart since we started compiling this data in 2011. There’s been no change in the order among the seven most popular drivers since we last looked at this data four months ago.

Since then Nico Rosberg has moved up a place to eighth (having won two races in the meantime).

Among the new drivers Jules Bianchi is the most popular followed closely by Valtteri Bottas, who already has more fans than team mate Pastor Maldonado.

Favourite teams

McLaren remain far and away the most popular team on F1 Fanatic at present. However Mercedes are picking up fans at a rapid rate this year having won three races and hired Lewis Hamilton.

The ranking of the teams remains exactly the same as it was four months ago. But Lotus have drawn even closer to Ferrari.
