If F1 was high school, which driver would be most popular?

Post by nate »

Inspired by the thread on popularity and cause I love polls! :D

Imagine the F1 field was a grade in high school. Who would be the driver every other driver would want to hang out/be seen with?

Raikkonen, Button, Hamilton, Ricciardo imo.

I would like to choose these four but the poll is forcing me to one choice. I'll take Ricciardo then.
Go Vandoorne :( - Verstappen - Vettel!

Easily Button. To be honest they are all pretty confident self assured guys. I expect they all would be popular.

Vettel, for his humour. Even Alonso can't help but laugh at his wit in press conferences.

What a humorous, lighthearted thread. :)

If we are talking about High school, we are talking about a younger generation who tend to love their social media, fashion and celebrity culture (without meaning to generalise, that’s the impression i get). With this in mind, I would choose Hamilton. He's perhaps the most active driver on social media and I don’t know of any other driver that hangs out with celebrities, rap stars, attends fashion shows, appears on TV & in films etc..

Nice to see an easy poll for a change; Räikkönen. Nobody else comes even remotely close.

Not sure if sport is the number 1 interest of today's kids with all the smartphones and the internet.

And I don't think Kimi would be popular unless he would speak a bit more.

Vettel's incredibly funny, so I think he would be quite popular - but since this is high school, I'm guessing there's no beating Jenson Button.

I really doubt either Vettel or Kimi would be the most popular until college, when you actually start appreciating better humour (or brooding mystery men, if you so prefer).

Kimi is clearly a big introvert, he would be the very quiet kid in the background. Danny Ric I am sure would be the popular guy

Depends on the high school.

If it was an American TV show high school, who is the best looking with a rich parent?

If it was my school, who is the most useless prick?



Kimi is probably the answer. He's high school cool with his drinking and shenanigans. He's a bit of a bad boy in some respects but not bad enough that your mother wouldn't let you hang about with him.

:lol: Yes, I was thinking whoever is the most obnoxious for my school.

Probably Vettel or Ricciardo. Both can be laid back, not afraid to have a laugh, good at sports and the girls fancy them too.

'Popular'... how?

Most talked about?

Maldonado

Most want to be seen with on social media?

Lewis

Most you would actually want?
