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.

    +4 Daniel Ricciardo
    Nice little post-FIA gala video, paying tribute to Nico Rosberg's decision to quit, and of course cheekily questioning whether his teammate deserves his awards or if there's something else going on!
  • 02 Dec
    +4 Nico Rosberg
    Following his heart and retiring from F1, at the top of his game, rather than sticking around endlessly! Good job Nico!
  • 01 Dec
    +6 Jenson Button
    Excellent work taking over Ted's notebook, and chatting about how he didn't even watch the end of the race! 12 laps and done for Jenson!
  • 01 Dec
    +2 Carlos Sainz Jr
    Great picture of Carlos and his crew, and brave to strip down to your Nomex underwear!
  • 01 Dec
    +2 Jenson Button
    One of the best humble brags I've ever seen. "Hmm, even my million pound car needs defrosting!"
  • 01 Dec
    +2 Felipe Massa
    Taking a cue from potentially the cutest Williams mechanic ever on his final race.
  • 01 Dec
    +4 Daniil Kvyat
    Showing off with a great score on Grill the Grid, heading to the top of the standings with his teammate.
  • 01 Dec
    +4 Jolyon Palmer
    Incredible performance on his Grill the Grid, such knowledge!
  • 01 Dec
    +2 Lewis Hamilton
    The Mercedes battle of the training regimes continued ahead of the final race in Abu Dhabi, look at Lewis, just throwing a tyre around.
  • 01 Dec
    +2 Nico Rosberg
    So good to see some sheer joy for winning the championship, it radiates out of his face!
  • 01 Dec
    +1 Kimi Räikkönen
    Having a go on the Ferrari World rollercoaster at Yas Marina and keeping a stiff upper lip the whole way!
  • 01 Dec
    +1 Sebastian Vettel
    Having a go on the Ferrari World rollercoaster at Yas Marina and actually reacting to it, unlike his teammate.
  • 01 Dec
    +7 Daniel Ricciardo
    We know Daniel's not afraid to show off his dance moves, but trying out bellydancing is incredibly brave even for him. Brilliant!
  • 01 Dec
    +1 Max Verstappen
    I really like the enthusiasm here of just racing anything you can get your hands on.
  • 01 Dec
    +2 Nico Rosberg
    Love a really good party to celebrate your first ever world championship - an all nighter!
  • 01 Dec
    +1 Jolyon Palmer
    Indulging in a pretty lengthy Twitter Q&A, no doubt celebrating having some time off post-season!
  • 01 Dec
    +2 Sebastian Vettel
    Doing his bit for charity, with a meet and greet.

    +2 Marcus Ericsson
    Bless him, live tweeting a couple of posts whilst supporting his brother in a kart race. Heartbreak in the final though!
  • 22 Nov
    +1 Romain Grosjean
    Trying to pass off excitement for the new Cars 3 trailer as if it is on behalf of his kids but we all know the truth.
  • 22 Nov
    +2 Jenson Button
    Good exit interview by JB here, although I'm not sure he should admit to being open to bribes like that!
