    Reject of the Year: Esteban Gutierrez
    Most Improved: Kimi Raikkonen
    Most Charismatic: Jenson Button
    Most Exciting: Sebastian Vettel, simply for the passion in his radio messages
    Most Useless: Esteban Gutierrez
    Most Anonymous: Valtteri Bottas
    Most Disappointing: Williams and Renault teams
    Overtake of the Year: Close between Ricciardo on Bottas at Monza and Vettel's cheeky pass on Sainz and Hulkenberg in the pit entry at China. 
    Drive of the Year: Daniel Ricciardo, Monaco GP
    Most Overrated: Daniil Kvyat. Like the guy but his performance this year has been pretty bad all year.
    Most Underrated: Sergio Perez. For me, one of the stars of the season but rarely got a mention. The only none Merc, RBR or Ferrari driver to break into triple figures.
    Race of the Year: Honestly I don't remember any of them well enough to answer this properly.
    Worst Race of the Year: Same as above.
    Most Spectacular Crash: Fernando Alonso, Australian GP
    Most Disgusting Promotional Tactic: I've forgotten most of the controversies. I'd go with Ron Dennis' removal.
    Most Emotional Moment: I think the farwells to both Felipe and Jenson. Two great careers coming to an end.
    Best Commentator: David Coulthard
    Worst Commentator: Ben Edwards
    Best Non-Driving Personality: Toto Wolff
    Worst Non-Driving Personality: Helmut Marko wins this by default every year.

    I would add another one as "Battle of the year" and would definitely vote Ricciardo vs Verstappen at Malaysia.

    T- "I don't consider you my enemy."

    K- "Oh? I didn't consider you at all."

    T- "Now that's just hurtful..."
