    OK, so Summer has started for only about 10 days and I’m already bored. With us being 9 races into the season, and only 11 races to go. We are, give or take, mid-way a thrilling season. I don’t want to wait another two weeks to do these awards, so I’ll do them now.

    Disappointment of the year has to be the way Mclaren have gone backwards, from having the best car at Melbourne to what they currently have now…4th in constructors says it all, to not take advantage really has been a huge disappointment, Hamilton should of had a decent lead by now, if it wasn’t for silly mistakes by Mclaren…

    For clarification and to avoid any confusion; there is indeed a difference between the season rating and the championship rating.

    Season rating → How good is the racing?
    Championship rating → How exciting is the championship?

    For example, 2007 had horrible racing but a brilliant championship. 2011 was the exact opposite. This season however, in my opinion we’ve got the best of both sides. :)

    Best driver: Fernando Alonso, in the first 4 races he had a very bad car, but he is leading the championship

    Best team: Ferrari, they have made big progress throughout the season
    Worse team: HRT, Marussia have passed them
    Most improved driver: Sergio Perez, two podiums
    Least improved driver: Kamui Kobayashi, he is miles behind his teammate
    Most improved team: Williams, consistent in the points, plus a win
    Least improved team: Toro Rosso, Caterham will soon pass them
    Best rookie: Romain Grosjean, 2 podiums, tied in performance with Raikkonen (if he counts, if not it’s Pic, because he has passed Glock a few times)
    Best race: Valencia, who would think about it before the race?
    Worse race: Monaco
    Best performance: Pirelli
    Best season moment: Schumi crying about his podium
    Best overtaking move: Alonso on Grosjean at Valencia
    Disappointment of the year: Felipe Massa

    That’s actually what performance of the year is suppose to be. Ah well, I guess I’m not very good at clarifying a meaning. :|

    @kingshark : Sorry mate. At the start Ithou it was what you meant but then I saw the others best performance and I saw what they had and wrote about Pirelli. My fault, I must learn not relying on others about understanding things

    Best driver: Fernando Alonso. Hands down the class of the field this year.
    Worst driver: Karthikeyan. People could argue whether he deserved a spot on the grid in 2005.. but no one defend that statement right now. Some drivers just aren’t f1 material, and Karthikeyan is a shining example.
    Best team: Red Bull
    Worse team: HRT
    Most improved driver: Mark Webber. Definitely a huge improvement from last season
    Least improved driver: Glock
    Most improved team: Williams. No doubt about it
    Least improved team: Ferrari
    Best rookie: Grosjean
    Best race: Valencia GP. Never thought I would pick this GP in a million years!
    Worse race: Monaco
    Best performance: Hamilton in Canada
    Best season moment: Alonso’s celebrations in Valencia
    Best overtaking move: Di Resta on 2 drivers in Spain i think
    Disappointment of the year: Kimi Raikkonnen.. I expected him to have got a win after a stellar start
    Flop of the year: Jenson Button.

    Season rating: 8.5
    Championship rating: 9.5

    Constructors champion? Red Bull
    Drivers champion? Fernando Alonso

    Best driver: Fernando Alonso – without a doubt
    Worst driver: Bruno Senna – not anywhere near his teammate.
    Best team: McLaren – not because of their drivers, but looking at technical innovation they have been the leading team by a long way.
    Worst team: HRT – have been more busy Spanifying their team than actually improving their performance: the car must be the least inspired design of the last 10 year.
    Most improved driver: Romain Grosjean – great driver
    Least improved driver: Jenson Button – what happened to him?
    Most improved team: Williams
    Least improved team: HRT again
    Best rookie: ‘rookie’ Grosjean
    Best race: Valencia
    Worst race: Bahrain – for political reasons
    Best performance: Pastor Maldonado in Spain
    Best season moment: Alonso’s Valencia celebration
    Best overtaking move: Grosjean on Hamilton in Valencia
    Disappointment of the year: Jenson Button
    Flop of the year: McLaren

    Season rating: 7 – exiting, but it has become a bit too Las Vegas for me.
    Championship rating: 9 – impossible to say who will lead in three races time

    Constructors champion? Red Bull
    Drivers champion? Fernando Alonso would be great!
