Formula 1 media officers choose Vettel as 2013 driver of the year
16 December, 2013
In a snap survey of Formula 1 team media officers Sebastian Vettel has emerged as their driver of the year by an overwhelming margin, with Fernando Alonso equally comfortable in second place and Nico Hulkenberg tied with Romain Grosjean for third.
Asked to pick the top three drivers, the hard working media people responded overwhelmingly, although a couple remained politically correct and declined to participate.
The survey results are similar to the outcome of a poll conducted among Formula 1 Team Principals who also chose quadruple World Champion Vettel as their driver of the year.
A team media officer, who wished to remain annonymous, said, “Sebastian was simply on another planet from Belgium onwards where he sustained a remarkable run right to the very end. His will to win was relentless. Despite wrapping up the title long before the end of the season he continued to dominate. He was the best in 2013. Now don’t tell my boss about my choice please!”
The poll among F1 media officers was conducted by Grand Prix 247. (GP247)
