    While reading Rib khalifa’s post about describing F1 in one word a post from 2007 on F1Fanatic sprung to mind, except it was describing each driver individually. It’s quite funny to see how things have changed, or haven’t, here’s a few I found quite interesting:

    “Mark Webber Unlucky”

    “Robert Kubica Fortunate”

    “Robert Kubica Crashmeister”

    “Lewis Hamilton Impatient”

    “Felipe Massa Nearly Man” (Can’t get much closer than one corner)

    “Felipe Massa teamplayer”

    “Sebastian Vettel Fast”

    “Sebastian Vettel rainmaster” (Is this guy psychic?)

    Debate: Describe each driver in one word

    So I’d like to see, almost 4 years on, how our opinions have changed;

    Sebastian Vettel – Lucky

    Mark Webber – Starts

    Lewis Hamilton – Frustrated

    Jenson Button – Relaxed

    Fernando Alonso – Quick

    Felipe Massa – Lost

    Michael Schumacher – Revitalised

    Nico Rosberg – Disappointed

    Nick Heidfeld – Court

    Bruno Senna – Impressive

    Vitaly Petrov – Declining

    Rubens Barrichello – Consistent

    Pastor Maldonado – Inconsistent

    Adrian Sutil – Ageing

    Paul di Resta – Fresh

    Kamui Kobayashi – Lackluster

    Sergio Perez – Promising

    Sebastian Buemi – Worsening

    Jaime Alguersuari – Improving

    Heikki Kovalainen – Talent

    Jarno Trulli – Steering

    Narain Karthikeyan – Nationality

    Daniel Ricciardo – Future

    Viantonio Liuzzi – Steady

    Timo Glock – Wasted

    Jerome d’Ambrosio – Invisible



    Sebastian Vettel – Underrated*

    Mark Webber – Unlucky

    Lewis Hamilton – Irritating**

    Jenson Button – Impressive

    Fernando Alonso – Outperforming

    Michael Schumacher – Wiley

    Nico Rosberg – See Mark Webber

    Nick Heidfeld – Sacked

    Paul di Resta – Future

    Kamui Kobayashi – Disapointing

    Jaime Alguersuari – Improving

    Heikki Kovalainen – Determined

    Daniel Ricciardo – Practicing

    Timo Glock – Wasted

    Jerome d’Ambrosio – Who?

    * Considering his acheivements irrespective of machinery, he deserves more credit than he gets from fans, although more people are begining to realise now, and no doubt when the inevitable is confirmed later this year (WC2010,WC2011) he should get the respect.

    ** Still a huge fan but Lewis is irritating this year, almost byt not quite, shown glimmers in Spain, China and Germany but it just hasn’t clicked – whether his mind set os all wrong because of the slower car or whatever? That’s for another time anyway.



    Sebastian Vettel – Clinical

    Mark Webber – Floundering

    Lewis Hamilton – Overdriving

    Jenson Button – Cool

    Fernando Alonso – Entitled

    Felipe Massa – Submissive

    Michael Schumacher – Can “Go Away” be one word?

    Nico Rosberg – Almost

    Nick Heidfeld – Yawn

    Bruno Senna – Promising

    Vitaly Petrov – Wishy-washy

    Rubens Barrichello – Perennial

    Pastor Maldonado – Faulty

    Adrian Sutil – Mild

    Paul di Resta – Eager

    Kamui Kobayashi – Gutsy

    Sergio Perez – Pleasant

    Sebastian Buemi – Meh

    Jaime Alguersuari – Possibilities

    Heikki Kovalainen – Positive

    Jarno Trulli – Excuses

    Narain Karthikeyan – Rich

    Daniel Ricciardo – Unproven

    Viantonio Liuzzi – Useless

    Timo Glock – Coulda-Woulda-Shoulda

    Jerome d’Ambrosio – Belgian
