Lewis Hamilton has been voted the best Formula 1 driver of the year by Race Fans readers, for the fourth year in a row.

The Mercedes driver won the world championship for the seventh time this year. He dominated the season, winning 11 of the first 15 races, but missed the next round after testing positive for Covid-19. He returned in time for the final race of the year.

Max Verstappen, who finished third in the championship after winning two races, came second in the voting. His new team mate for the 2021 F1 season, Sergio Perez, was third.

Hamilton was also chosen as Driver of the Weekend more often than anyone else, topping our poll six times. Other winners included Daniel Ricciardo three times, Verstappen and Perez twice each, and one-time winners Lando Norris, Carlos Sainz Jnr, Nico Hulkenberg and George Russell.
