    I put mine (as I disagree deeply with the poll choices): Ellinas, Vandoorne, Ocon, Ghiotto, Rosenqvist, Leclerc, Wehrlein, Rowland.

    About Ellinas: Yes, he is almost my compatriot. But he has gone so well, everywhere. In 2013, in GP3, he was taken out two times from P1, in Spa Race 2 and Monza Race 1 and lost P2 (or P1 even).

    About Vandoorne: His single seater career is simply stunning.

    About Ocon: He beat Verstappen with ease in F3 to take the title and this year his consistency (even with reverse grid) was amazing.

    About Ghiotto: My surprise of 2015, nearly lost out on the GP3 title. Very fast and consistent, despite not being in a top team.

    About Rosenqvist: 27 podiums, 14 wins in 34 races this year.

    About Leclerc: P4 in his second year in single seaters in 17 years of age, not bad at all. Definitely really talented.

    About Wehrlein: He has had good teachers and was really good this season in DTM, handling the pressure really well. He can do really well in case he reaches F1.

    About Rowland: A really good season in FR3.5 this year, let's hope he keeps it up.

    none of the poll really. I agree more with Manolis as my list would be this:

    Vandoorne
    Ocon
    Ghiotto
    Wherlein
    Leclerc

    In that order. Rosenqvist is to old and has been racing F3 since 2010 so i dont think he's talented enough.
