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.

  • 19 Sep
    +1 Esteban Ocon
  • 19 Sep
    +1 Marcus Ericsson
    Not sure we need to have interviews in ice baths but points for endurance.
  • 19 Sep
    +1 Carlos Sainz Jr
    Love the reaction to finishing fourth. Vamos, anyone?
  • 19 Sep
    +1 Carlos Sainz Jr
    Reacting quite well to being doused in champagne whilst in an ice bath. That must have been an odd mix of sensations.
  • 16 Sep
    +1 Carlos Sainz Jr
    Love the Toro Rosso chaps being interviewed by a robot.
  • 16 Sep
    +1 Daniil Kvyat
    Love the Toro Rosso chaps being interviewed by a robot.
  • 16 Sep
    +2 Felipe Massa
    Lovely open interview with Massa about his prospects for the future.
  • 16 Sep
    +2 Max Verstappen
    The Red Bull boys try a taste test of some unusual fruit, with predictably hilarious results. For Max, trying a hammer as a last resort is brilliant.

    +2 Daniel Ricciardo
    The Red Bull boys try a taste test of some unusual fruit, with predictably hilarious results. For Daniel, the constant laughing at his teammate is fabulous.

  • 16 Sep
    +1 Daniel Ricciardo
    Good looking and fast he may be, perhaps not so modest though.
  • 16 Sep
    +1 Fernando Alonso
    I feel like Alonso enjoys a surfing panda just as much, maybe more, than I do!
  • 16 Sep
    +2 Carlos Sainz Jr
    Sainz got to sit in the best Renault ever, and shared the picture upon his return to that seat.
  • 16 Sep
    +1 Sebastian Vettel
    No love lost between Vettel and Ricciardo, as the Ferrari driver gets a bit nostalgic.
  • 12 Sep
    +1 Valtteri Bottas
    Bless Bottas for heading back to Finland for a short anniversary trip.
  • 12 Sep
    +1 Romain Grosjean
    Sharing his thoughts about racing in the night, and sort of admitting to being a vampire: "All week we never see the sunlight..."
  • 12 Sep
    +1 Daniel Ricciardo
    Interesting insight from the Dan Diaries, particularly on how to improve as a driver with so little testing time.
  • 10 Sep
    +2 Daniel Ricciardo
    Fab Q&A with Ricciardo, and now we know he's Team TayTay.
  • 10 Sep
    +1 Sergio Pérez
    Surprising insights into the mind of Checo - introducing me to the concept of trypophobia, and electric helicopters for pets.
  • 10 Sep
    +1 Stoffel Vandoorne
    Nice to get to know Stoffel a little more, it's the quiet ones you have to watch. Not sure about the Grosjean joke, though, hmm.
  • 07 Sep
    +3 Kimi Räikkönen
    Defending Rubens in the final edition of this year's Grill the Grid. Also for knowing absolutely nothing about his own career.
