Who will be the YallaF1.com Driver of the Year?
26 December, 2012
Dec.26 (YallaF1.com) While the rest of the world enjoys festive cheer and all that goes with that, we at YallaF1.com are earnestly pondering whom to bestow with our highly coveted and prestigious title of Driver of the Year.
We are aware that the F1 world is awaiting the announcement on the morning of 31 December with a great deal of excitement and anxiety. Word is that the five candidates are having sleepless nights as the big day nears.
We have also had to hire more security over the past week as journalists from the likes of Autosport, F1.com, L’Equipe, the New York Times, F1 Racing, Auto Motor Und Sport, and others have been snooping around our offices trying to get the scoop on who will be the DOtY. Patience lads…
There are five guys who have stood out this year for a bunch of reasons: Sebastian Vettel, Fernando Alonso, Lewis Hamilton, Kimi Raikkonen and Jenson Button.
Our final decision, which is totally undemocratic and based on the biased opinions of a select few, will not take into account just their prowess on track, or how many points they scored – although these are obviously factored into the equation – we also take into account the impact these candidates have had on the season, unforgettable moments and the headlines they made along the way. All very scientific of course…
Tune in on the final day of 2012 when all will be revealed…
