F1: 2010 drivers in order of preference

Yesterday during quali, Sarah, Kayleigh and I were talking about putting this year's drivers in order of how much we liked them based on not much more than our gut instincts towards them. Sarah and Kayleigh published their lists separately and now here is mine.

The two places about which there could be no doubt were first and last and that held true for the others, too with all of us having a common last place. My original list posted on Twitter didn't include Sakon Yamamoto but I guess he can't be blamed for all the musical cars at Hispania Racing so he's in this one.

So, here goes:

The Top Ten

1.  Schumi - who else, really?
2.  Rubens - the nicest guy in F1 ever
3 . Felipe Massa - Ferrari's finest and amazingly brave after horrible accident last year
4.  Heikki Kovalainen - great to see him happy and settled at Lotus this year
5.  Karun Chandhok - so courteous, takes everything in his stride, trainee Rubens
6.  Mark Webber - fantastic driver, occasionally lets heart rule head but forgivably so
7 . Sebastian Vettel - incredibly talented and I find him impossible to dislike
8.  Nico Rosberg - he's funny and has settled in well at Mercedes
9.  Jarno Trulli - the Trains are bigger, but he's lovely and has a vineyard
10.Robert Kubica - conscientiously helping Renault get back on course to challenge for the top

The Midfield

11. Fernando Alonso - for talent alone. Not chuffed with some of moves he's pulled on people esp Massa
12. Kamui Kobayashi - so high cos of his brave overtaking moves
13. Nico Hulkenberg - nice guy & lucky to have Rubens as team mate
14. Jenson Button - higher than he would have been in last year's list cos of way he's settled at McLaren
15. Timo Glock - deserves a much better car than he has
16. Pedro De La Rosa - good to see him back
17. Jaime Alguesuari - hasn't set heather on fire but doing ok
18. Adrian Sutil - hasn't entirely lost his unfortunate habit of getting in people's way

The off-radar lot - I don't have anything against this lot but they just haven't drawn my attention that much

19. Tonio Liuzzi
20. Vitaly Petrov
21. Sebastian Buemi
22. Bruno Senna
23. Lucas Di Grassi
24. Sakon Yamomoto

And a long way further down in my estimation

25. Lewis Hamilton, who still shows no sign of being grateful for the opportunites life has thrown at him

Oo the off radar category was a great idea, I'd have similar people in it.

Somehow I've missed a driver (that's what the 'deliberate' mistake was but for the life of me can't work out who!
