Mark Webber voted as Lewis Hamilton’s main F1 challenger in 2010

Friday, July 23rd, 2010

In the mid-season poll Mark Webber was voted as Lewis Hamilton’s main F1 championship contending racing driver with 3715 fan votes in total.

Mark Webber is Lewis Hamilton's main competitor for 2010 as voted by fans

0%, 9 votes – Felipe Massa
3%, 113 votes – Fernando Alonso
26%, 976 votes – Jenson Button
43%, 1611 votes – Mark Webber
1%, 24 votes – Michael Schumacher
1%, 20 votes – Nico Rosberg
26%, 962 votes – Sebastian Vettel

Comparing this mid-season poll compared to the start-of-season poll things have changed quite drastically. Fernando Alonso who was previously voted to be the main challenger by a margin with 38%, this has now dropped to 3% of the total votes.

Whoever will challenge Lewis for the rest of the season it sure looks to be rounding up a great 2010 season with Lewis Hamilton having superb changes for the F1 driver’s championship.

Here are the results:

Lewis Hamilton's Main Competitor in 2010 Poll Results

Fernando Alonso has received the most votes for being Lewis Hamilton’s competitor by a country mile. Which seems to reflect his win in Bahrain last weekend.

Jenson Button and Michael Schumacher are relatively close together followed by Sebastian Vettel. I would have thought that Vettel would be most competitive after Alonso, as he as proven to be very good. We don’t know how Michael Schumacher was going to do so he’s a bit of an unknown and it also largely depends on how Mercedes GP improve. But he’s always going to be a threat.

It was also surprising that Nico Rosberg received so few votes as he’s a quality driver!

The 2010 Formula 1 season is certainly going to be interesting.

Poll results in %:
Fernando Alonso – 38.07%
Jenson Button – 19.62%
Michael Schumacher – 18.22%
Sebastian Vettel – 13.62%
Felipe Massa – 8.03%
Mark Webber – 1.28%
Nico Rosberg – 1.16%
