POLL: Which F1 rookie has impressed most in 2010?

With four races done, who do you feel has been the best rookie to date in F1 2010?
With four races down in the F1 season, it's time to see what you make of the performance of the rookie class for 2010.

Of the six rookies on the grid – which includes Kamui Kobayashi after his two races at the end of 2009 - only two have scored points so far, with Vitaly Petrov picking up six points for Renault in China and Nico Hulkenberg scoring a single point for Williams.

Petrov has shown speed, even if he has just one finish to his name to date, while Hulkenberg showed his potential with fifth on the grid in the rain at Sepang.

Big things were expected of Kobayashi but Sauber's numerous problems mean he has yet to see the chequered flag, while the remaining rookies have to deal with the challenges being faced by the F1 newcomers – with Lucas di Grassi, Karun Chandhok and Bruno Senna all battling with cars that, as yet, don't have the speed to challenge the established order.

While it hasn't been easy for any of the rookies, each has shown promise thus far which begs the question, who has done best?

For me it has to be Chandhok. While Petrov has been impressive at times its easy to forget he as a extremely competitive car under him, im sure senna, di grassi, chandhok, koba etc would do just as well as him in that seat.
