One of my favourite new features on the site is the ability for F1 Fanatic to pick which drivers and teams they support.
With that in mind, I’ve had a look who you’ve picked so far and compiled this look at the most popular drivers and teams on F1 Fanatic right now.
Keep in mind these figures are not set in stone – they will change as more people join in on the site and others shift their allegiances between drivers and teams.
- Jenson Button is the most popular driver among F1 Fanatic readers right now. Around one in eight F1 Fanatics (12.4%) who’ve used the site since the new version was launched picked him as a driver they’re supporting.
- Kamui Kobayashi’s third place in the list underlines his reputation as a fan favourite.
- Robert Kubica may not have raced this year but he’s far from forgotten and well inside the top ten.
- Despite only having entered F1 mid-season, Daniel Ricciardo already had more than 50 fans
- Some people picked only one driver, others picked as many as ten or more
- To find out how many people support each driver, type their name into the search box and select results for members
- McLaren are way out in front – Having the two most popular drivers probably helps!
- Support is spread quite evenly among the remaining teams, with Lotus a surprise third. Will they still be as popular when they become Caterham?
- HRT and Virgin have failed to win many fans here so far.

Most of us started watching F1 in the last 20 years.
But there’s plenty of F1 Fanatics whose memories stretch back far further – some even as far as the first years of the world championship.
