Thus Verstappen received 14.4 percent of all votes. A third of all survey respondents have nominated the Dutchman in the top 3 players.
With 13.7 per cent of the votes, McLaren’s Lando Norris came second in the ranking of most famous Formula 1 drivers. What was remarkable about him: 57 percent of respondents placed him in the top three. Norris even took the lead among fans under the age of 24.
Lewis Hamilton, who was still a crowd favorite in the 2017 Formula 1 poll, was voted third this time with 12.5 percent of all votes. Unsurprisingly, he came first in his native Great Britain. (Call all Formula 1 poll results here!)
