The winner of the current season of “Formula 1” Briton Lewis Hamilton (Mercedes) scored 36 thousand votes less, however, journalists still call him the best driver.
“Hamilton is a five — time champion. He made few mistakes on the track and won 11 of 21 races of the season. While he has not always been the fastest car,” said to Sky Sports.
