The team principals of the F1F Virtual Grand Prix Championship have listed their top ten drivers of the season. Based on their lists, it has created an overall top ten drivers list of the inaugural season of the F1F Virtual Grand Prix Championship.
1st Nathaniel Powers
He won the championship and led it ever since from the second round of the championship. Four brilliant wins along with consistent podium has helped the Englishman take the drivers championship. Powers has received the most support in the team principals driver rankings; therefor he is number one.
2nd Jean Mattson
Jean Mattson proved to be Powers biggest rival throughout the championship and looked mightily close to snatching the drivers championship before his accident at Suzuka. It's debatable how many wins he could have achieved if not for poor luck and driver error. The team principals rank the Frenchman second.
3rd Adrien Simon
Simon looked might in pre-season testing, poor in round one, and then back on it by round two. In fact the Frenchman was threatened of a loss of his seat by his own team principal after only the first round in Australia. Simon fought back taking two victory's and performing steadily throughout. He is ranked in third.
4th Elroy Wagner
Wagner claimed six pole positions in the inaugural season of the series. Despite the high number of poles, Wagner only took two wins. The German may have wracked up a couple more if not for driver error. He looked fast throughout the whole season, notable at the opening round where he was leading until his brakes failure.
5th Puccio Giodano
The Italian was the youngest driver to compete in the inaugural series and claimed his first pole position in Spain. His early season form was great, though dropping off as the season progressed. Many have high hopes for Giodano in the future where he can build on from a strong first season. Best of the rest you could say; he is ranked in fifth.
6th Will Hoskins
It wasn't really until the second half of the season where Hoskins begun to out perform his teammate more often. Unfortunately his first half was difficult and watched on as his Powers built up his championship lead. Hoskins showed clear dominance in his victory at his home race in Silverstone. With some more consistent results, Hoskins was a pivotal part in Franklin F1 taking the Constructors Championship.
7th Carson Davenport
Voted in seventh place is Carson Davenport. The Portuguese came alive in the second half of the season taking two poles, one fastest lap, and one victory. Davenport seemed to have had the measure over his teammate in most cases, and his pole lap at Monza may have been one of the highlights of the season.
8th Enrique Ruiz
The Brazilian only appeared in the final four rounds of the championship. Making his race debut for Ingram at the Chinese Grand Prix, Ruiz managed to finish tenth. His result was backed up by finishing in the points in the following to races (not an easy feat for and Ingram driver). Ruiz raced for Franklin F1 for the final round of the championship, once again finishing in the points. Enrique Ruiz impressed many and earning his spot in the world championship team next season.
9th Lewis Ellington
It was a strange season for Lewis Ellington. Replaced at Franklin before the season had even begun, then signing for BMW Zyla, causing controversy, taking victory in Spain, then shortly after was left without a drive as his team was excluded from the series. Ellington finished tenth in the drivers championship despite only appearing in five races.
10th Hugh Dwyer
Like his teammate Dwyer performed very well in the second halkf of the season. His first half of the season was dissapoting and was rumoured to be replaced by the teams test driver Fillipio Fazio. However at the Italian Grand Prix (same race Davenport claimed pole) Dwyer finished in a fantasic second place cementing his role in the team for the remainder of the season. The performance continued with a win at the Brazilian Grand Prix.
