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.

    Freestyling a song while waiting to be interviewed alongside teammate Max Verstappen. I love how, for the most part, Max is like, yep, this is what it's like working with this guy. Great voice Disco Dan.
