    I’d do my own list, but @Electrolite‘s is exactly what I think, particularly the top 10 -

    1. Sebastian Vettel – The slightest of misfortune or error from this guy gets people jumping out of their seats…In the most competitive grid in an age, he’s beating some very, very good drivers.
    2. Jenson Button – If he had won and Vettel retired in Brazil he’d have scored the most out of anyone in the second half of the season. For that he moved up to 2nd for me.
    3. Fernando Alonso – Continues to drag the mediocre F150 S*italia to places it really shouldn’t be going…
    4. Nico Rosberg – He’s done it well and he’s done it quietly – beaten the ever improving Schumacher again. Now he needs a car to do justice to his performances.
    5. Mark Webber – Bad starts and occasional dreary qualfying sessions have been the thorn in this man’s side this season. Apart from that, he’s been the most gutsy racer wheel to wheel out of the lot, and in a car pretty much designed from the bottom to give Vettel his second title, he remained a force during the race.
    6. Heikki Kovalainen
    7. Lewis Hamilton
    8. Michael Schumacher
    9. Adrian Sutil – A resurgent second half to the season, but frankly the first was not good enough.
    10. Paul Di Resta

    I really agree with the analysis of the top 5 and the positions for Webber and Hamilton respectively – I’d rather a consistent and great racer over an inconsistent yet amazing racer.

    The rest is too hard for me to think of now, if at all! I may get around to it, but I’m only interested in the top 10 anyway!

    Really my only disappointment is Mark Webber, he’s been beaten by Vettel consistently, which is hard to watch as one of his biggest fans. Although, the lack of blown diffusers next year gives me hope he’ll be better next year!

    The biggest irony I think is that the Pirelli tyres have given us great racing, but given us a boring championship! Vettel wouldn’t have ran away with it if they still had Bridgestones!

    Webber on Alonso at Spa- you just don’t see that, ever!

    2nd: Vettel on Alonso at Monza – awesome pass, just wish he had to do it more often!

    Oh, well if they’re bringing Karthikeyan back for India, what is going on?!?!

    Yeah, I completely agree with you PM, Hispania would suffer if this is just a trial run for Ricciardo before being promoted to Toro Rosso next year. But then again, HRT wouldn’t accept it unless Red Bull are giving them something, right? Maybe more money? I don’t know, but surely there’s a reason HRT would sign Ricciardo. Perhaps a falling out with Karthikeyan and his backer?

    Ricciardo is a down to earth nice guy, from his niceness in talking to me when he signed autographs at Barbagallo raceway in Perth last year (which isn’t the best source, I know!). So he knows what he’s doing I guess, and you should at least let him perform before you have a ‘dislike’ of him.

    It’s probably not the best move, is it? Is anyone going to take a driver from HRT (next year)? Should he have just waited for a Toro Rosso spot?

    This link says there’ll be an announcement later tonight (UK time), so we’ll have to wait.
