The British driver Hamilton, who won three awards at the FIA year-end awards ceremony not long ago, has recently added a trophy to his honor room because the 7-time world champion has won another award: F1 initiated by formal1.com In the 2020 F1 Best Driver Selection, where the team leader and drivers jointly voted, Hamilton was once again elected with an absolute advantage.
In this selection, only the F1 team leaders and drivers have the right to vote. Whether in the selection of team leaders or drivers, Hamilton scored the highest points. In the standings voted by the team leader, Hamilton ranked first with 171 points, Red Bull’s Verstappen came second with 156 points, and Ferrari’s Leclerc (132 points) followed closely behind in third place. It was Renault’s Ricardo and Perez who switched to Red Bull from the match point.
Russell, the sixth place, is really unexpected because Russell has never scored a point in an official race during his two years with the Williams team, but because he temporarily replaced Hamilton in driving a Mercedes car. The excellent performance demonstrated has been recognized by many people. Also from the Mercedes team Bottas ranked only ninth.

- Hamilton (Mercedes): 171 points

Except for the absence of Ferrari’s Binotto, the remaining 9 team leaders all participated in the scoring. Maybe Binotto thinks he is no longer qualified to lead the Ferrari team.
The voting process for drivers is basically the same, but drivers are allowed to vote for themselves. In the driver’s mutual vote, the annual champion Hamilton is still the first, followed by Verstappen, Ricardo, and Leclerc, Gasley ranked fifth in the driver’s score. The Haas team’s Grosjean unexpectedly ranked 8th. Perhaps everyone is happy that Grosjean escaped from the dead. What could be a better performance than escaping from the flames? Alben is ranked 10th. Although he won the runner-up of the year, Bottas still did not enter the top ten. However, the specific scores of the drivers’ mutual votes were not announced.
