    How would you rank the 20 F1 drivers based on their *current* ability?

    My list:
    1. Alonso
    2. Vettel
    3. Hamilton
    4. Ricciardo
    5. Bottas
    6. Verstappen
    7. Perez
    8. Sainz
    9. Hulkenberg
    10. Massa
    11. Raikkonen
    12. Wehrlein
    13. Ocon
    14. Grosjean
    15. Vandoorne
    16. Magnussen
    17. Kvyat
    18. Ericsson
    19. Palmer
    20. Stroll

    I think it’s difficult to produce a definitive list due to varying car performances, form and different team-mates. However, it’s fun to try and not too difficult to group them I feel. Personally I would do so as below:

    Tier 1
    Alonso
    Hamilton
    Vettel

    Tier 2
    Verstappen
    Ricciardo
    Bottas
    Hulkenberg
    Perez
    Sainz

    Tier 3
    Raikkonen
    Ocon
    Grosjean
    Kvyat
    Wehrlein

    Tier 4
    Magnussen
    Massa
    Ericsson
    Vandoorne

    Tier 5
    Stroll
    Palmer

    I’d also caveat this by saying that Vandoorne in particular needs more time, while Raikkonen/Massa are in decline. I’d suggest team bosses probably do a similar thing when choosing new drivers (not saying their groupings would be the same as mine!). For example, when Rosberg retired, Wolff approached Vettel and Alonso, both of whom could not be brought to contract for whatever reason, so he moved to Tier 2.

    Tier 1
    Ricciardo
    Alonso
    Verstappen
    Hamilton
    Vettel

    Tier 2
    Hülkenberg
    Bottas
    Perez
    Sainz
    Ocon

    Tier 3
    Wehrlein
    Grosjean
    Vandoorne (I hope he’ll prove with results soon)
    Kvyat
    Raikkonen
    Magnussen
    Massa

    Tier 4
    Ericsson
    Palmer
    Stroll

    Tiers are a good way to put them because sometimes the order is loose, but adjusting it to the last 12 months let’s say, this is how I’d put them.
