When we last looked at who F1 Fanatic readers were supporting Jenson Button had just become first to pass 1,000 supporters.
Now Lewis Hamilton has passed that milestone too. And Kimi Raikkonen is not far off, having moved up into third place.
Fernando Alonso’s efforts won him a lot of praise this year and he’s moved ahead of Mark Webber in fourth place.
But success doesn’t always lead to popularity. Sebastian Vettel only ranks ninth on the list despite his three world championships.
And despite scoring the first win for Williams in eight years, Pastor Maldonado’s fans here number less than 100.
