Interesting. It was close. If Kimi had a short wheel-base car for the whole season, he would have done just as good as Grosjean during the mid-season and later. Then he would be a worthy first. Now it is debatable. I do see that Seb had a very good car with Pirelli's help from mid-season: before the tires change, Seb, Kimi and Ferdy were separated by very few points. In all the polls from 2008, the WDC winner was never the people's choice. Weird.

@ LP - That's because it is not a scientific poll conducted and participated in by people with any knowledge of the sport. It is a collection of biases put together by a website that wouldn't know good journalism if it bit them in the backside.

Bit harsh there. But yes, as it is a public vote it is just as much a popularity contest as anything. Personally I think Kimi was impressive, no other word for it, but with Vettel's record-breaking season he just has to be number one. And as unimpressive as Maldonado was, was he really the worst driver on the grid? I think we're dealing with some bitter Hulk fans here...

As this is "motor racing", any judgement of achievement will inevitably reflect on the combintion of car and driver.

If it were possible, it would be very interesting to have a test whereby all drivers had to drive all cars - for, say, 10 timed laps The results might be quite surprising.

According to these polls,Vettel was the best driver on the grid only in 2008 and 2009. When he started winning titles suddenly Alonso, Button and Raikkonen became better than him. This is pathetic. Anyway the good news is that the top three were very close(despite the order between them) and all of them are very good drivers, so is nice that people does recognise their talent.

lol, poor pastor. I have to admit I'm expecting him to be fast next year if the car is good, he should be able to keep up with Romain if the past is any indication. To be fair, Williams took all his money to invest in next years car, they had a dog, hard to fight in that from mid field or worse.
