F1 » Vote for your 2012 F1 Driver of the Year


The title race went to the wire, with two of the sport's biggest names vying for the crown, but F1 2012 was more than that, with eight different winners and some unexpected names in unfamiliar places. But who deserves the title of driver of the year?

Drivers choose the steering. Vettel and Webber use different steerings by CHOICE. Vettel prefers a smoother one and Webber a bulkier.

About the twitchiness of the car, steering adjustments, that's driver skill and not car though many will choose to disagree with me.

Sorry guys, the FIA decided yesterday who was the "Driver of the Year." They had a ceremony and handed Sebastian Vettel the upside-down bell of a trophy with names all over it like Fangio, Clark, Rindt, Prost, Mansell and Schumacher. They added another of Sebastian's signatures to the top of the spiral. That makes 3 Sebastian Vettel signatures at the top.
Fernando Alonso was given a special Samurai Driver's special mention.

I was watching that some guys published their choices. I say that many of them choose considering the final resuls, the standings. But I think that you should better judge the consistency, the performance of a driver comparing it to his team-mate, his misfortune (for example Hamilton and Schumacher and to some extent Webber too were very unluckier to their team-mates), the qualifying performances which usually gives us a good indication of the real performances of the cars, always if qualifyings are trouble-free, the accidents and some other minor parameters. So we can conclude. I must say that I agree with them which stated he great performace of Alonso and Raikkonen. But Hamilton too deserves a lot of consideration, because he did nothing wrong, but was very unlucky all year. And don't forget Hulkenberg and the other drivers running in the midfield. I can't wait for the results of this poll.

As a vettel fan I gave him a 10 and kimi a 10 and even though I am not an alonso fan I still gave him a 10 as you have to give him total respect for dragging what was a dog of a car on to the grid and driving the socks off that thing and out performing the car every race.
Anyone that doesn't give him max respect for this year has no idea about F1.

1-Alonso top. javascript:insertTextCursor('comment',%20':)')
2-Vettel (with some luck) second
3-Kimi
Bottom Hamilton,Massa, Senna. Then the bunch.
Schumaker has destroyed his past glory. Especially in the last race, letting Vettel thru with an invitation.
