Fans had earlier crowned McLaren as the luckiest team thanks to the success of their mid-season upgrades, but here at GPFans we wanted to know who you thought was the driver who benefitted the most from Lady Luck in 2023.
Stroll claimed second place in the category, with fans perhaps looking at Stroll's points tally – nearly one third of his team-mate Fernando Alonso's – as a slice of luck for the Canadian to keep his seat at Aston Martin in 2024.
This year's champion, Verstappen, sealed third place with 24 per cent of the vote. It is hard to argue that the Dutchman hasn't made his own luck, but driving a car like the RB19 does not come around all that often.
Alonso and Alex Albon rounded off the award in fourth and fifth respectively. The Spaniard for being handed a sumptuous car to drive, while the Williams star also saw some luck as the recipient of a pressure-free season thanks to the dominance he had over his team-mate.
