    Here we have eight inherited characteristics of a racing driver. Your goal is to pick a certain driver for each characteristic, a driver who excels in that field, and when you combine all the characteristics, you get the “ultimate” racing driver, so to speak.

    One-lap Qualifying: Who’s speed over one lap should the driver have?
    Racing Speed: Who’s speed over 55 laps should the driver have?
    Overtaking Skill: Who’s overtaking ability should the driver have?
    Defending Skill: Who’s defending ability should the driver have?
    Tyre Saving Ability: Who’s tyre conserving ability should the driver have?
    Wet-weather driving: Who’s rain driving ability should the driver have?
    Changing conditions: Who’s driving ability in changing conditions should the driver have?
    Character: Like who should the driver act in front of the media?

    You can use any of the current 22 drivers on the grid. However, here is the catch: You cannot use the same driver more than once. This way the game becomes more challenging, and also prevents you from reusing the driver over and over again.

    Overtaking Skill — Fernando Alonso
    Defending Skill — Nico Hulkenberg
    Tyre Saving Ability — Sergio Perez
    Wet-weather driving — Lewis Hamilton

    I had a quick go:

    One-lap Qualifying: Romain Grosjean
    Racing Speed: Sebastian Vettel
    Overtaking Skill: Kimi Raikkonen
    Defending Skill: Nico Hulkenberg
    Tyre Saving Ability: Paul Di Resta
    Wet-weather driving: Fernando Alonso
    Changing conditions: Jenson Button
    Character: Mark Webber

    I could swap Webber and Raikkonen around I’d still be happy. Perez has also shown he can be good with tyre saving stratagies. Good idea!

    I had an idea until I read the part about not being to use the same driver more than once. In that respect, I feel it doesn’t create the ultimate F1 driver :P. Most of mine consisted of a mix of Vettel and Button, with the possibilities of adding Rosberg, Alonso and Hamilton into the mix with their skill being equal.

    Too hard! xD

    You can’t use the same driver more than once. That would be too easy. ;-)
