    • Michael Schumacher: love to see him on the podium once more in what it looks to be his final year in F1
    • Nico Hulkenberg: love his potential; could be a future world champion with the right team and car. Mega raw talent!

    Webber - Liked him since his Minardi days
    Button - Classact all round, on and off the track
    Rosberg - Nice guy and so under-rated, could give Vettel a challenge if he was in Red Bull easily
    Perez - Liked his style of racing since I saw him in British F3
    Ricciardo - Just because he will be the only one to challenge Vettel in the next 5 years IMO
    Kovalainen - Nice guy and want to see Lotus start to get points

    Bruno Senna: I like the guy!
    De La Rosa: Don't know why, maybe because I liked the Arrows in 99-02.
    Missed on Karthikeyan: Surprised me last year!
  6. Alonso because of the fighter he is. The best or most complete driver on the grid bar none.
    Hamilton because he´s the fastest F1 driver since Senna. Very creative driver.
    Raikkonen because of his mental attitude.
    Button because of his awareness.
  7. Jenson Button: Brilliant driver and nice guy

    Lewis Hamilton: Is incredibly quick, and can overtake where no one else can

    Nico Rosberg: put schumachar in his place the last two years

    Paul Di Resta: beat Vettel in Formula 3, DTM champion, potential world champion

    Bruno Senna: Real quick guy. Has a cool name too:)
  8. Voted for (in order of preference):

    Maldonado - The driver that I will now be 'following' since Barrichello retired. He had a poor first season but I believe he is much better than he gets credit for and he'll hopefully prove a lot of his doubters wrong this year (and hopefully Williams have a top-10-challenging car).

    Hulkenberg - I think he's the real deal. Very excited by him and hopefully he will outshine Di Resta.

    Senna - He seems modest and down-to-earth, drives for Williams and has that name! :)

    Hamilton: just raw speed and talent

    DiResta: very talented up and coming driver.

    Ricciardo: this kid has got a lot of potential and he's a cool guy.

    Senna: it's in the name. I really want to see him succeed.

    Alonso: probably the more complete driver.

    Button: always a joy see him drive and read the track and race situations.

    Hamilton: he's a pure racer, and I like his new cynical actitude more than the hypocritical one he had in the recent years, seems more mature now.

    Pedro De La Rosa: the Spanish Heifield, solid driver and a great tester like McLaren recognized for years.

    Pastor Maldonado: because a lot of people hate him for no reason, and he performed well last year.

    Vitaly Petrov: he showed me he has the nerves in 2010 and despite he's known as paid driver he deserves a place in F1

    Schumacher: I really want to see him on podium again.

    Kobayashi: For he is the leader of Sauber :)
  12. Voted for Schumacher. Last year, I was trying to root for Button, but it just didn't work out. I always ended up going back to Schumacher again :p I've been a fan since I was a little boy and that's not going to change any time soon ;)

    Also put one in for Alonso. Not really my favorite driver or anything, but he is just SO DAMN GOOD :eek:

    I agree about Alonso.
    He'll never be a favourite of mine but he is probably the most well-rounded and complete driver on the grid.
  14. Haha. Sounds like me. Was relatively bored with F1 2007-2009. Then the king returned :)

    I noticed too late that multiple votes are allowed, so I just picked the first on my list:

    Alonso: I like his driving style and his consistency and more important: I'm forever thankful to him, that he ended this horrendous boring years of Schumacher domination back than, when Alonso managed to beat him 2 years in a row in the Renault :)

    Webber: I like his personality and his fairness on the track and the way he handles the situation of everyone ignoring him because of Vettel

    Vettel: Great driver and a good guy; not as good overall as Alonso though yet. And even in dominating a season, he stays humble and sincere, unlike another German ex-champion :rolleyes:

    p.s. I miss Sutil in the field; dissappointed to see him go
  16. I think the problem with Vettel for many is that he's too awesome. He rarely makes mistakes, and he's just such a likeable guy that many may think he's too nice. But I like him. He races fair, fast and he can pull a rabbit out of a hat when required.

  17. Wait until the car is not winning material anymore.

    If you want a glimpse of how he really is then watch as he goes off in Korea or even when not taking pole.
    throwing stuff around etc.

    He´s happy as hell because he´s a 2-time world champion and has the best car.
    He was happy as hell when he entered F1 because it´s new territory.

    Wait until he don´t win races and RBR era is on a downspiral, then you´ll see the real Vettel come out.
    Just like you´ve seen Hamilton after a very tough season etc.
  18. *Michael Schumacher : Michael is Michael, I can not forget the best years :)
    *Lewis Hamilton : he's a pure racer,he makes magic thing with his car.
    *Fernando Alonso : The most complete driver. I love his character and determination.
    *Sebastian Vettel : all simply, he is very good driver, and nice guy,be very determined .
    **Nico Rosberg, I would like see him in a competitive car.

    Le Baron Rouge :)
  20. Vettel: He's the second best driver in the field, Alonso takes first for me. But Vettel has impressed throughout his whole career in F1; setting the fastest time in practice, being the youngest to score a point, then having consistant high finishes in the Toro Rosso and delivering the first win to STR and RBR. He also has beaten Webber as a teammate for all 3 years he's been with RBR. He's got talent. He also deserved both championships. Haters gonna hate.

    Alonso: He's fast, consistant, and a great wheel to wheel racer. I love watching him race. Even in a crap Ferrari he still managed to get it on the podium. My favourite just because he's more complete than Vettel. I expect Alonso vs Vettel for the WDC to go down to the wire this year, and Alonso will win.

    Petrov: People are writing him off too early I think. He did so much better in 2011 than in 2010. I also think he's better than Trulli at this point because Trulli passed his peak.

    Hamilton: An exciting driver that will take any opportunity to overtake.

    Senna: Because like Petrov, he still has potential.

    Perez: This guy is exciting.

    Schumacher: My #1 favourite.
