Re: Did 2014 feature an outstanding level of driving?

With Ricciardo and Hamilton dominating the "Driver of the Year Poll" in the polls sub forum, it makes me wonder whether this year has seen the level of driving at an exceptionally high level. There have been some years where it has been difficult to pick a top 5, 2011 for instance, where ...
