Vettel for bossing the first half of the season
Hamilton for bossing the second half of the season
Alonso continued to work wonders in a disaster of a car
Verstappen continued to show the potential to eclipse all three of them in the long run

Hard to pick a 5th. I'd say Hulkenberg, Perez and Sainz were the best of the rest but all made their share of mistakes during the year.

1. Verstappen - was faster than his very highly rated teammate for the majority of the season. His atrocious bad luck masked just how great he was. His only mistake was Hungary

2. Hamilton - some poor races early on, but a very strong second half of the season, with Brazil as the only mistake (after the WDC was decided)

3. Vettel - very strong first half of the season, very good pace almost everywhere, but two black marks are Baku and Singapore.

4. Alonso - difficult to judge just how good he was, but he beat his highly rated rookie teammate convincingly and generally got the most out of the car.

5. Ricciardo - did not have the speed of his teammate, but his racecraft and consistency was as sharp as ever.

6. Hulkenberg
7. Perez
8. Ocon
9. Sainz
10. Bottas

I know I may be a Bottas fan, but how can he be as low as 10th? Sainz has clearly had a worse season. Several others too have done worse than Bottas but not by as much as Sainz IMO. I can't say Sainz has had any more decent races than Bottas and Sainz has had 3 terrible races and had been responsible for more retirements than any other driver on the grid over the entire year. Plus he's collected a fair few penalty points.
I also think putting Verstappen 4 places ahead of Ricciardo is far too generous. You say Verstappen has had atrocious bad luck? Ricciardo has had 6 retirements and Verstappen has had 7. Horner said Red Bull were by far at their strongest at Malyasia, Japan, USA and Mexico. And in 2 of these, Ricciardo had to retire. I think their luck isn't far apart at all and Ricciardo beat Verstappen by 32 points.... I did a much more thorough comparison on another thread but rating these drivers this far apart just baffles me if I'm honest. Verstappen had definitely been better in qualifying, but that is the only consistent evidence we have really.

Hamilton, Alonso, Verstappen, Ricciardo, Vettel.

Coincidentally - or not - also the five widely considered the best on the grid.
