Who have been your top three drivers of the 2018 F1 season? Have your say in our final poll of the year!
There are plenty of drivers to choose from when deciding on who has been the cream of the crop in 2018.
Though it looked in doubt in the early part of the season, Lewis Hamilton stormed his way to his fifth Drivers’ Championship with plenty of stunning drives throughout the year. Sebastian Vettel found himself in bother through his own mistakes on a number of occasions this year, but still pulled off some great drives; particularly in the first half of the season. The Red Bull duo of Daniel Ricciardo and Max Verstappen have impressed, too; Ricciardo, with his two memorable victories in China and Monaco and, after a shaky start to the year, Verstappen, whose talent has shone through in recent races. Elsewhere, the retiring Fernando Alonso has been as canny as ever with his on-track moves, and Charles Leclerc has proven himself to be a star of the future in his rookie season with Sauber. There are also honourable mentions for Red-Bull-bound Pierre Gasly and Haas’ Kevin Magnussen, who’ve both had some great drives to secure crucial points for their teams this year.
