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.

    -2 Daniel Ricciardo
    Sullying the good name of F1 by losing a competition with WEC driver Darren Turner. He took it in good spirits though.

    +1 Sergio Pérez
    Great fan engagement, and deftly sidestepping the Mercedes question.
  • 18 Jul
    +1 Esteban Ocon
    Great fan engagement, and winning the floating ball competition.
  • 18 Jul
    +1 Felipe Massa
    Love how much Massa appears to be enjoying this photo.
  • 18 Jul
    +1 Daniel Ricciardo
    I reckon there should be an F1 grid photobomb competition, because Daniel has submitted the first entry.
  • 16 Jul
    +1 Max Verstappen
    The corner name/number thing doesn't bother me but it does at least show some respect and reverence for the track they're racing on.

    +3 Lewis Hamilton
    Inviting Billy Monger to the British GP, a lovely gesture and Billy looked very well and happy!

    +2 Nico Hülkenberg
    Well made video from CNN, Hülkenberg crossing the streams with a tennis interview. Sneaky info about Kvyat too.
  • 13 Jul
    +2 Max Verstappen
    Max is taking his run of bad fortune well, and has lowered his expectations somewhat for Silverstone.
  • 13 Jul
    +2 Carlos Sainz Jr
    Riding on the tube with a lot of unsuspecting passengers.
  • 13 Jul
    +1 Nico Hülkenberg
    I love, love, love this cockney rhyming slang video, all the drivers make me laugh but Hülkenberg gets a point for saying "butcher's look" and clearly misunderstanding the whole point of the game. Adorbz!
  • 13 Jul
    +1 Romain Grosjean
    I love, love, love this cockney rhyming slang video, all the drivers make me laugh but Grosjean gets points for hearing fruit and immediately thinking alcohol!
  • 13 Jul
    +1 Esteban Ocon
    I love, love, love this cockney rhyming slang video, all the drivers make me laugh but Ocon gets points for trying to rhyme "peers" with stairs.
  • 12 Jul
    -10 Lewis Hamilton
    Being the only driver not present at F1's Live in London celebration, and also being quite blatant about not being there.
  • 11 Jul
    -1 Daniel Ricciardo
    Pretty sure Dan should have learned by now that impressions aren't his strong point, bless!
  • 11 Jul
    +2 Carlos Sainz Jr
    Lovely gesture by Carlos Sainz to cross the streams of tennis and motorsport with Rafael Nadal.
  • 10 Jul
    +1 Daniel Ricciardo
    Great job with the crossbar challenge showing some nifty footwork.

    I'm sure they were made to wear this outfit but oof, it's not a good look.
