I have not put Bottas on there which looks harsh but I am trying to think apart from race 1 and the poles except Sackhir. I am trying to think of anything memorable this season that would be positive about him apart from telling everyone to "FU"

Ahhh, the age old question.

I refer the honourable gentlemen to George Russell.
I think Sergio has been around long enough for us to be able to make an assessment - capable midfield plodder who's easy on his tyres, at about the level of Hulkenberg and slightly better than Ocon. Based on that alone I couldn't put him anywhere near Ricciardo or Leclerc. Russell hadn't had an F1 standard team mate until Sakhir.

Oh I couldn't agree more.
I don't understand all the (current) raving about Perez.

Here's a fairly interesting site for stats nerds (mentioning no names ...).

i always say in chaos races, perez is always there & he seems to be good under pressure you look at how Albon & Bottas struggled though traffic. at times this season. but perez in portimao & sakhir has fallen to back of field still managed to get through the field & make a decent position

by the way i thought i would keep this open until the end of the year. to give time if anyone else if they havent vote & would like to, to vote

currently theres no shock at who provisionally winnings, but there is some surprise at bottom end, currently 8 drivers who haven't got a individual vote with a few big names there

i thought that was very weird because from the outside, i thought grosjean was past it in 2018. but the drivers know more than us

& i know it come to him alot, but the best seat in F1 will always come with more scruinity like being in the best team of any sport. what does it say about Bottas not in the drivers top 10 & joint 9th in teams top 10

yeah this probally the worst thing for a forum as we always joke :D

i cant see any problems with this, & of course you can argue that someone should be 1 place higher or lower but thats really splitting hairs
