You are currently viewing Best leading role, best comedy, best hairstyle… These are our Formula 1 Oscars

Last Sunday, the Formula 1 drivers saw the finish flag for the last time this season. Time to hand out prizes. Who will win the Oscar for best leading role, best supporting actor, best comedy…?

Best Leading Role: Max Verstappen (Red Bull)

No discussion with the jury: world champion Max Verstappen deserves the main prize. Last season he had to fight to the last meter for the world title, this season he headed in the ball much earlier.

After the Australian GP he didn’t want to think about the world title for a while, but then he won one race after another. No one ever did better than 15 wins in a season.

His best win this year? Then we choose the one in the US GP. Because Verstappen – after a bad pit stop – fought a nice and respectful duel with title competitor Charles Leclerc.

Best Supporting Actor: Charles Leclerc (Ferrari)

Charles Leclerc can call himself Max Verstappen’s biggest challenger. Especially at the beginning of the season, he put the defending champion on fire.

Leclerc could call himself World Cup leader, but soon the Monegask and his team Ferrari shot themselves in the foot. With the GP of France as the low point. Leclerc was comfortably in the lead when he parked his car in the tire wall.

As a consolation prize, Leclerc dragged the vice world title out of the fire last weekend.

Best Short Film: Zhou Guanyu

Chinese rookie Zhou Guanyu has the fright of his life at the Silverstone circuit. At the start, the Alfa Romeo is immediately catapulted into the air.

The Chinese lands on his roof (read: the halo) and slides into the gravel trap at high speed. The car even ends up between the tire wall and the fence.

Fortunately, Zhou and the spectators can still tell the tale.

Best comeback: Kevin Magnussen

Last year Kevin Magnussen had to make way for Nikita Mazepin’s rubles, this year the experienced Dane made his comeback with the Haas team.

Successfully. Magnussen immediately collected points for the American team in the opening races.

Two weeks ago things got even better in Brazil. In the qualifications Magnussen – with some luck – set the fastest time. The icing on the cake of a great season.

Best Soap: Oscar Piastri

Oscar Piastri (21) has not yet driven a race on the highest season, yet he already ended up in a real F1 soap. Thanks to master of the craft Fernando Alonso.

After Sebastian Vettel announced his retirement, Aston Martin announced that Alonso was coming to replace him. His current team Alpine went into a spasm. The French promptly announced that their talent would promote Piastri.

The Australian in turn went into a spasm. Piastri responded with the message that he would not race for Alpine in Formula 1 at all.

McLaren later announced his arrival. F2 champion Piastri will be joined by his compatriot Daniel Ricciardo. It ended up in another soap opera. To be continued.

Best Costume: Lewis Hamilton

Lewis Hamilton has had a hard time this season. Not only because his Mercedes was unstoppable at the beginning of the season, just think of the bouncing, also because the new FIA chairman wants to strictly comply with the rules.

The Brit had to have his piercings removed. In protest, the flamboyant top driver in Miami wore his entire jewelry box: 3 watches on his wrists, a glittering ring on each finger, earrings, a nose piercing and at least 4 necklaces around his neck.

Lewis Hamilton “blinks” out in Miami.

Best Comedy: Lewis Hamilton

Lewis Hamilton will take home 2 Oscars this season. He can also put that for best comedy on his closet.

After his 4th place in Azerbaijan, Hamilton crawls out of his bouncing Mercedes like a broken man. The 37-year-old rider is suffering from severe back pain and fears for the race in Canada a week later.

Hamilton just starts in Montreal. To finish 3rd.

Lewis Hamilton barely gets out of his car in Azerbaijan.

Best Hair Style: Valtteri Bottas

Hamilton’s former teammate Valtteri Bottas has become a hip bird. Not only does the Finn love gravel bikes, he’s also growing a moustache this month. Movemberyou know.

Best sound: Sergio Pérez

With 2 victories and a 3rd place in the final standings, Sergio Pérez has had his best season. In Hungary, the Mexican stood out with a comical scene about the on-board radio.

During the practice sessions, Pérez had a coughing attack. “There’s an allergy here”he said.

Because Pérez had dropped out at the Hungaroring a year earlier? This year, the Red Bull driver finished 5th.

Lifetime achievement award: Sebastian Vettel

After 16 years, Sebastian Vettel (35) puts an end to a successful Formula 1 career. The German waved off in Abu Dhabi with 3 vice and 4 world titles.

To announce his retirement, Vettel actually started an Instagram account. Until this year, he refused to embrace social media.

More important is Vettel’s social commitment. “There are much more important and bigger things in life than racing”he explained.

In recent years, the former Red Bull and Ferrari driver has asked for attention for the environment and for LGBT people, among other things.

Sebastian Vettel supports the LGBT community.
