    Do we now need a "Which driver are you most ambivalent about?" to fully balance the whole thing?

    Well, your first two choices are no surprise. But as you always get indignant about cost controls and budget caps...and tend to wax poetic about how capitalism is a wonderful thing and no one should ever place restrictions on how much or on what a team can spend money on......then I am surprised you voted against the kid whose daddy bought a team for him. It seems like the free market at its finest.

    I have to learn write more clearly about budgets, because if that's the impression I made on you, than I am at fault. I am not that person you describe, however my words were to serve as warning about potential damage such regulation will inflict upon sport, if mandated budget will be realized. IMHO it is a wrong medicine for misdiagnosed problems of the F1, generating uncertain outcome.

    I voted for Stroll before I realised multiple votes were allowed.

    I've nowt against the lad but he's just soooooooooooooooo bland, if vanilla ice cream could get a super license it'd be more exciting than Lance.

    I also don't think that Bob Kub should've returned, it's admirable, but it's also a bit embarrassing to watch, if Williams want to be inclusive in so much that they'll employ a disabled driver then be inclusive and give Jamie Chadwick the race seat.

    Well, we have had many arguments over this subject over the years. But....pay drivers is a part of F1 that I would like to see go away. There are couple of ways of doing this (budget caps would help...but so would stricter licensing requirements).

    System of pay drivers rubbs me wrong way. Driver is risking his life, and (sort off) works for his pay, whilst also making money for his employer (WCC). The same employer should therefore pay him for his work and services provided, not the other way round. Whole value system has usury like stench in it these days.

    It looks it obvious in most people's view Stroll features in any least favourite 3 . Vettel and Verstappen next - did anyone vote for both then?

    I put Perez down because like Stroll if it was not for his money his career would have probably been finished by now as an F1 driver

    i dont mind pay drivers getting on the grid in a backmarker minnow Minardi HRT Manor. the ways people did in 90s / earlier because its always been part of F1 & how numerous world champions have got there break Hunt Lauda Schumacher & Alonso. all paid there way. but its when that money gets them into midfield or higher i do start having problems because that should be on talent

    This surprises me, I would expect people voting Perez for not liking his personality or some incidents he's been involved in, but quality-wise he's one of the top drivers of the midfield.

    Agreed. There are lots of reasons not to like him, but his driving is not one of them. He did consistently outperformed Hulkenberg when they were teammates. If Perez is not worthy, that where does Hulkenberg stand, or Ricciardo who has not been able to consistently beat Hulkenberg, or Sainz who was rather solidly beaten by Hulkenberg?

    I agree with all of the above but am still not a fan of Sergio. I've read many things from various different sources which suggests he is not a nice man and therefore he ranks as one of my least favourites. I don't wish him any ill though and enjoy seeing him involved in the action.

    Oy, watch it. The prima team of all time (and giving away the best coffee) Minardi morphed into Toro Rosso; their truck driver even gave me a thumbs up when I waved my Minardi F1 cap at him.

    I forgot to mention the scrapes that Perez got into a few years back where he tried to prove he was an aggressive racer and he was not. I was not impressed the way he shoved Ocon into the wall at Singapore
    The thing that will always stand out for me about Perez was he was offered a drive at Renault to be No 1 but he turned it down citing lack of leadership in that before they gave it to Hulkenberg. For 5 years Sergio has been dreaming he will land a Ferrari drive and they never came calling because of his backers . The guy is deluded and failed to take an opportunity to prove himself at another team. That to be says it all and his credentials are only going to go downhill if Stroll beats him

    I pretty much agree with everything said about Perez.

    F1Brits_90 I can't like Ricciardo, I don't hate him but I just can't warm to the guy somehow. He didn't make my top three list here though. The others you list just don't do anything much to make them annoying yet, I say yet, Leclerc and Norris haven't had much chance to annoy anyone yet really, it could happen, who knows?

    Kimi can annoy at times but not enough to stay annoyed at him I find. Bottas is just someone I don't think much about either way most of the time, he's just a little bland if I may say so.
