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.

    Because travelling on your own jet is so mundane, you have to bring extra entertainment along for the ride.

    I like drivers sharing statistics about themselves, particularly when they are quite specific and not-so-spectacular achievements.

    +1 Jolyon Palmer
    Nice bit of team building from Jolyon here, with his engineers running the track.

    A bit mean from Maxie here, but quite fun having a good old chat/swear with a Dutch TV anchor.
