Ranking the 2022 F1 drivers from worst to best

Our dedicated F1 team has closely followed the progress of all 22 drivers that participated in the 2022 F1 season – and now the season is over it's time to reveal our ranking of the 20 full-time drivers from worst to best.
This ranking is not simply about ordering the best drivers based on their overall ability, but specifically analysing their performance levels relative to their available machinery over the course of the full 2022 F1 season.
Substitutes Nico Hulkenberg and Nyck de Vries are specifically excluded, because the fact they only did a handful of races between them makes comparison to the rest of the grid unfair, but our F1 experts have examined the details of every other driver's 2022 campaign to come up with a definitive order, taking into consideration myriad factors – such as overall pace in qualifying and the races, consistency, rate of mistakes, how each progressed through the year, how they fared against their respective team-mates, and many more.

  1. English bias. Apparently Aston have a front wing being banned. If this is right then you should have made Alonso second. But two British drivers are home biased.

  2. The car matters too much. There is no real competition. Would Norris beat Verstappen while both driving a Red Bull car? I am sure Alonso would! Max is a Mad genius and he deserves his 3 world championships (no doubt he will win 2023) But as superior as he was in 2022, Norris and Alonso were too impressive.

  3. From 2-20th this list is hokey as hell….No way Perez is #9…i would put him 3rd in this list. He did have a couple bad races, but has been the driver that has had to adapt to changes to a car that are literally opposite his driving style. I cant see how any driver would excel in that kind of environment (look at Hamilton with the shit pile Merc gave him in 22). Plus he got screwed by his own teammate, for some nebulous BS reason. So yea. That fact Alonzo, Sainz, Russel AND Lewis are ahead of Sergio on your list is what i feel to be, purely biased. Boo.
