Formula One team bosses have voted Lewis Hamilton as the sport's top driver for the fourth year in a row but Mercedes team mate Valtteri Bottas slipped to 10th place in the rankings.
The poll, published by motorsport.com on Thursday, put four times world champion Hamilton far ahead of closest rival Max Verstappen.
Bottas, winner of three races this year after joining as now-retired 2016 world champion Nico Rosberg's replacement, was listed in 10th place after bosses awarded points according to the regular F1 scoring system.
