Season summary:

A strong start to his first season with Carlin saw Jolyon Palmer finish in the points in five out of the first six races in 2013, but the 22-year-old Briton was then caught up in the huge multi-car accident in the Monaco feature race. That misfortune heralded a fallow mid-season that only picked up again when he raced to a brilliant win at the Hungaroring in July. Thereafter it was a disappointingly sporadic finish to the season, with a further win at Singapore and a second place in Abu Dhabi doing little to disguise the fact that he otherwise only finished in the points again at Spa, on his way to what proved to be a decent but unspectacular seventh place in the championship that was some way off his team mate Felipe Nasr.

Is seventh about right for Palmer? You can share your opinions simply by clicking on 'Post your comments'. And don't forget to check back tomorrow to see who has been ranked in sixth place!
