The ConstructorsF1 website currently runs the 4th annual The Climber Of The Year in F1 Award. If you haven’t heard about this site before you may want to check it out. Do not expect a classic F1 news site. This site focuses on design and construction of Formula 1 cars. The introductions of different parts of F1 cars are accompanied with detailed drawings. Since its beginning in 2004 ConstructorsF1 runs the annual Climber of the Year Award for the most significant improvement in terms of hardware and driving skills compared to the previous year.
The previous winners were:
2007 – Lewis Hamilton
2006 – Felipe Massa
2005 – Fernando Alonso
2004 – Jenson Button
Although the award is still young the guys behind are doing some great PR job. The results are usually announced at a press conferences (last year in the SAS Radisson hotel in Prague). And unlike in many other online polls, the winner of this one actually gets to get the crystal trophy. Here is photo of Fernando Alonso with his trophy (presented to him during 2006 European GP), and here is photo of Felipe Massa with his (during 2007 European GP).
The voting for 2008 Climber of The Year in F1 is now underway. You can also make the difference and help to decide who will get the trophy this year – simply click here and vote for The Climber of The Year. At the moment Robert Kubica is in the lead, ahead of Mark Webber. I will keep posting updates on the voting and standings until the voting finishes at the end of the year.
