Well, well, well. Guess who’s been crowned the best driver of 2023? That’s right, it’s Max Verstappen. All the Formula 1 drivers had a say in this. They all voted. And guess what? The world champ came out on top. Again.

So, how’d this all go down? Well, at the end of the year, Formula 1 did this thing. They organized a vote. Every driver got to pick their top ten. Even themselves.

The points? They’re like Grand Prix points. 25 for the top spot, 18 for the second, and so on. All these points together? That’s your top 10.

So, who were the big shots of 2023?

Verstappen, obviously. With 19 wins from 22 Grands Prix, it’s no shocker. No one’s ever dominated an F1 season like this guy. But don’t forget about Sergio Perez. Even though he came second in the championship, he’s tenth in this ranking. Two places up from last season. Not bad, eh?

And after Verstappen? It’s Lewis Hamilton. He’s the second-best driver of 2023, according to the drivers. Charles Leclerc? He’s slipped to fifth. Fernando Alonso, though, he’s made some serious strides. He’s third this year.

Who else is in the top 10? Lando Norris, Carlos Sainz, Alexander Albon, Oscar Piastri, and Pierre Gasly. Piastri and Gasly? They’re new to the top 10.
