Christine's F1 driver rankings

These driver rankings are the most in-depth and accurate global ranking driver system ever produced by Christine. This year's Formula One drivers will be judged on their photography skills, cooking habits, fashion sense, charity work, video appearances and much, much more. The twenty-one race season will decide who is the fastest driver in the best car, but my rankings are about something quite different. I want to know who is the nicest, funniest, fan-friendliest driver.

Spot something rankings worthy, then let Christine know.

    +3 Lewis Hamilton
    Interesting, honest and humble interview with the defending champion. Lengthy but worth it.

    Love a glimpse of how supportive Bottas is towards his swimmer girlfriend.

    Spending a bit of time with his mum during Barcelona testing.

    Nice little celebration and thank you video, which I mostly enjoy for the reflections of the Red Bull bods in the trophy.
  • 17 May
    +1 Daniel Ricciardo
    Excellent Sebastian Vettel ping pong reference, after the German complained about potential overtaking contact during a race again.
  • 17 May
    -3 Lewis Hamilton
    Sitting off at the front of the driver's parade bus again. (Although it did prompt this amusing Renault tweet.

    +3 Kimi Räikkönen
    Nice gesture, karts for kids - although hopefully not that young.
  • 13 May
    +4 Fernando Alonso
    Brilliant special double interview alongside Carlos Sainz for the Spanish weekend. Nice when they're talking about meeting heroes.

    +2 Felipe Massa
    Not being embarrassed to show off some less-than-stellar drawing skills. Bless!
  • 13 May
    +2 Nico Rosberg
    Handing over his twitter account to photographer Paul Ripke, it's great to get some extra insight from a different point of view.
  • 13 May
    +3 Romain Grosjean
    Bless him, thinking the visor tear-off regulation was being enforced already and doing his best to stick by it.
  • 13 May

    Handling the whole Red Bull driver switch situation with great maturity.

    Running a half marathon on your weekend off, as you do.
  • 10 May

    Oof, this does look cold - brave Marcus with a spot of outdoor swimming.
