Team of the Year: Mercedes
Rookie of the Year: Esteban Ocon
Reject of the Year: Esteban Gutierrez
Most Improved: Kimi Raikkonen

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.

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.

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