Yes, I know the thread's supposed to be light-hearted, but the problem with current title is that it can provoke comments that aren't light-hearted at all, with posters taking ombrage at their favourite drivers being criticed in a vindicative way.
I think something with "disappointing, or "disappointment" in it would be fairer and posters would be encouraged to be more objective.
Just to be clear, it's only the word Chump we're looking at replacing.

The rest of the thread title will remain.
So they will be, for example:
2011 Monaco Grand Prix Driver of the Weekend
2011 Monaco Grand Prix ??? of the Weekend
Is Wally less offensive? It is at least alliterative. Passenger of the weekend in Monaco - well we would have all had to have voted for Sergio Perez given the number of times the BBC team said "he was just a passenger"
I don't see what is wrong with 'chump' but then I'm not as PC as the rest of the World - as far as I'm concerned a chump is merely a foolish person.

If you're going to go with 'disappointment' you will need more than one option in every poll :givemestrength:
