At which point does a reprimand become an offence? Surely you can't have 15 "yellow cards"...

I'd place them in top three, without a specific order. They are frankly the top of the top. If I was pressed I'd pick my favourite driver, but I really feel like there is not much between their skills as drivers. I'd pick any of them any day against another driver.
