Can't really argue with the choices but I would have been inclined to put Kubica at the top of the pile. All the title challengers made their fair share of mistakes.

the definitive top ten (as compiled by me)


10.the hulk.outpaced rubens at monza virtually all weekend.which automatically puts you in the top ten f1 drivers.frank would possibly disagree but on driver selection i think we can safely say what does he know?

9.kobycrashi.a lot better that i thought he would be.possibly a lot better than anyone watching his junior career thought he would be! provided around 33% of the seasons entertainment.

8.rosberg.have to include him in here to refute any allegations i am jealous of his hair.he's good don't get me wrong but there is still just something lacking for me.thought grandpa schumi might show us what it was.meh.

7.rubens.thought this might be rubens last season.instead his many fans will see his cheery face agains next year.and if williams sign pastor possibly the year after that too.

6.our jenson.happily going to macca didn't prove as insane as i thought as jense pulled off some excellent drives.on the other hand simply isn't as relentless as lewis and his qualywobbles continued.will the new tyres and possibly more strategy calls help him combat the hamster? >?:PLO

5.webbo webber.bit like our jense had brillant days but also days where he was off the pace (relatively speaking since he was driving the fastest car often by some margin).can't see him doing it next year.but then i could never see him winning a grand prix either. doitury

4.alfonso.alfonso was kind of lucky in that all his good drives came in the last third of the season.so everyone could talk about how brillant he was and forget the complete balls he made of half a dozen races.and the petrov moment again reminded everyone outside spain he is a complete t!t.

3.hamster.typical hamster really.some stunning qualy laps, blinding speed and stunning overtakes.and some over exuberance.if he could rule that last bit out, er f1 would be very dull. :lol)

2.little seb.and he is going to get better.this is quite worrying.

1.bob.monaco 2010.the alledged best driver in f1 parks his red car in the barriers and starts at the back.the real best driver in f1 finishes third in a clapped out renault. :1st:

Glad to see O'Glock there in the Autosport list.He would be in my Top Ten too.Brillant performances at Singapore and Korea.I think working for Dickie got him down a bit at times but that's only natural.Maybe not in the very top line of F1 drivers but would make a very capable second driver for any big team in my opinion and totally wasted driving for the Bearded Tit.

Can't quite decide how good Glock is. He reminds me a bit of Eddie Cheever - mostly anonymous, but occasionally inspired.
