A few weeks back, FOTA launched “the most exhaustive F1 fan survey ever”. A huge range questions were put to the fans, and one of these has become the first result to be published from the survey. Michael Schumacher has been voted the most popular driver in F1, ahead of Fernando Alonso.
However, the margin of how popular he is is quite surprising. Schumacher took 19.5% of the entire vote, compared to Alonso’s 9.7%. In third place was a driver who isn’t even in Formula 1 any more – Kimi Raikkonen.
This is the first result of a huge survey. Over 90,000 (knock off a zero there, and I can make a good few jokes!) people took part, and there will be a huge degree of expectation to see some of the answers, such as how they feel about races, and how they could be improved. These results should be out within a few weeks.
