F1 2017: Who is the best-performing driver of the season so far?

With more than half of F1 2017 now completed, which driver has performed most impressively up to the summer break?

On the Sky Sports website and mobile app after every Grand Prix, each driver is given a mark out of 10 for their performance that weekend in a Driver Ratings feature that never fails to polarise opinion!

Below we've included a list of the drivers with the highest average ratings across the first 11 races and from that leaderboard we want you to select the driver who you believe has performed best to this point of the campaign.

Twelve drivers have averaged a strong score of seven or more, with Sebastian Vettel's position at the head of the Drivers' Championship mirrored in our average grades table

Highest average scores after 11 races

Sergio Perez 7.45
Esteban Ocon 7.18
Kimi Raikkonen 7.15
