Three races into the 2010 Formula 1 season, and Nico Hulkenberg perhaps has laid claim to the early-season title as the best rookie driver on the grid.
After all, he just scored his first F1 points in Malaysia, and is the only rookie with any points thus far.
But does that really mean he’s been the most impressive? What about Karun Chandhok, who has finished two races in a car he’d never sat in before a month ago? Vitaly Petrov doesn’t have any points, but he has been involved in the rookie highlight of the year — his straight-line battle with Lewis Hamilton.
Perhaps someone else has caught your attention?
So: Which F1 rookie has impressed you the most thus far?
