There is a topic on this in the Nostalgia Forum which should give you a complete set.

Thanks Bleu.

 

I know about the Nostalgia topic on this as I have posted on that thread.  The latest lists are not considered nostalgic, apparently.  Only 13 and 15 missing now.

No offence intended but the selection is as curious as your avatar on what is primarily a car racing forum.

I have read a 2018 list yesterday.
I'm gonna read it tonight another time to find of if I truly did read what I think i did read yesterday.
Because when I think about what I believe I did read yesterday, I think I've dreamed it or had a bad fantasy.

What I read yesterday was one if the worst top 10s about 2018 I have read yet up till now.

if I can believe my eyes: One driver who was classified within the top 6 of the season standings was deemed not worthy enough to be included within the top 10 ......
I know, I wasn't impressed with him either but not being rated good enoug tobe among the 10 best drivers of the year, in short the first hal of all drivers, eve I can't agree with that.....

I’m guessing based on popular journalist-bashing targets it’s either Vettel, Raikkonen, or Bottas, who even in their best years will probably struggle to get the credit they’re due.

I have not read the list but given the pace advantage F1 enjoyed over F1.5, one could easily build an argument to exclude one of the top 6 from the list of top 10 performers of the year, and potentially construct an argument against two others in the top6 too if you factor in the preseason expectations.

I haven't seen the ratings, but I assume the odd one out was Bottas? He was at times left out in this forum's top 10 as well, and doesn't have a good reputation at the moment.

 

Rating and comparing the second tier drivers is always difficult, and leaving somebody out always feels somebody is hard done-by. Try to choose between the likes of Hulk, Bottas, Perez or Ocon.

No, but you had one element about the omitted driver correct.....

 

I've read the list again and my eys didn't deceive me yesterday....

 

 

Listed as being: The Editors Choice: (Tony Dodgins )  read and shiver....

 

Hamilton

Alonso

Verstappen

Vettel

Ricciardo

Bottas

Leclerc

Hulkenberg

Perez

Gasly

 

 

 

A very interesting comment by Mr. Dodgins about how he made up his list....

 

Quted from the description about #9 Perez:

"Mindful that Pierre Gasly's impressive debut season at Toro Rosso would see him claim the final spot in 2018's Top ten: it was a toss up whether to include Perez or team mate Esteban Ocon at number nine."

 

So: Perez and Ocon were too close to differ and needed a toss of the coin to be splitted yet the looser was ranked to be below Gasly!

Oh dear, he left the wrong guy out. (The correct top 10 would have been Hamilton—Leclerc—Verstappen—Alonso—Pérez—Ricciardo—Räikkönen—Ocon—Gasly—Hülkenberg.)

The compiler of the list must really dislike Kimi Räikkönen...

No sympathy for Kimi and the numerous reliability issues he suffered, plus the loss of a potential pole at Hungary due where they stuck him out on track? The F1 media are busy telling us how wronged his teammate was, so...

Kimi deserved a top 10 place, of course he did. Bottas maybe did not, especially not P6.

Indeed Raikkonen on the mean scored about one point less per race than his team mate if one overlooks his retirements none of which can be pinned on him....

Alternatively, he had the best car in the field and only won once.

He did? Must have missed that, though I am not alone in that respect.... Hell the likelihood is pretty good that he did not even have the best car in the sole race he actually did win....
