Max Verstappen clinched the title of the best Formula 1 driver of 2023 in the annual vote conducted by F1, as all of his peers barring Lewis Hamilton acknowledged his exceptional performance throughout the season.
The anonymous F1 Driver of the Year voting system is an annual process where the 22 drivers on the grid use the standard F1 points system to rank their peers based on performance.
Points are assigned according to rankings, and the driver with the most points is crowned F1 Driver of the Year.
This system offers a unique perspective by reflecting the opinions of the drivers themselves on their peers' skills and impact during the season. The anonymity of the process eliminates the potential for public scrutiny.
