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.

    +1 Valtteri Bottas
    Getting in on the summer break action, looks like Bottas is prepping for a lovely and relaxing break.

    Joining in the spirit of birthday celebrations and wearing a ridiculous party hat.
  • 02 Aug
    +1 Nico Rosberg
    Getting some lessons in Snapchat and selfies. I could use some of those!
  • 02 Aug
    +1 Romain Grosjean
    Looking to give Rosberg a run for his money speaking so many languages.
  • 02 Aug
    +2 Nico Hülkenberg
    Spending some time with the fans in Germany, by handing out autographs and food - the best combination?
  • 02 Aug
    -3 Daniel Ricciardo
    I've seen some celebrations in my time but ewww, drinking champagne out of a shoe? No.
  • 02 Aug
    -4 Daniel Ricciardo
    Dear oh dear, Dan, you've got to get your national stereotypes right! I do like how he's able to laugh it off though.
  • 02 Aug
    +1 Romain Grosjean
    Not sure this birthday cake is up to his usual standards, but bless anyway.
  • 02 Aug
    +1 Max Verstappen
    Very quickly getting in the summer spirit and diving in the pool the moment the summer break begins!

    +2 Kevin Magnussen
    Getting an article correction where the crucial word was omitted.
  • 26 Jul
    +3 Rio Haryanto
    Being very cute in this Grill the Grid video, knowing quite a lot about current F1 stuff but not so much about the history.
  • 26 Jul
    +1 Nico Hülkenberg
    Having a lot of fun driving an old Mercedes around Hockenheim - you can see through the floor!
  • 26 Jul
    +2 Nico Rosberg
    I have no idea what is going on in this video but it looks like a lot of fun, and still amazed by the high production values.

    +1 Felipe Massa
    Hooray for a bonus visit with Stefano Domenicali, miss that guy.
  • 26 Jul
    +2 Max Verstappen
    Cheeky chappy towards Channel 4 presenter David Coulthard at both the beginning and the end of this video. "You can run!" he says.

    +4 Sebastian Vettel
    Putting up a picture given to him by a young fan, pride of place on the garage wall!

    A bonus "hi mum" wave at the end of Ricciardo's in-flight video entertainment.
  • 26 Jul

    Providing the tunes for the post-Hungary flight home, no shame in his choices at all!

    +3 Daniel Ricciardo
    Lots of points for this fun video from the post-Hungary driver flight. Trying to keep control amongst a bunch of kids!

    Esteban taking the initiative in a equal driver status interview question.
