After three days of voting by readers of this site and over 230 comments, the clear winner of the moment of the year so far is the collision between Sebastian Vettel and Mark Webber in Istanbul.

The second most popular moment was Lewis Hamilton taking pole position in Montreal, the only time in 12 races this season that Red Bull were not on pole.

Mark Webber's win at Silverstone, after being relegated to the old specification front wing was the third favourite moment followed by the breathtaking pass by Rubens Barrichello on Michael Schumacher and the McLaren battle for the lead in Istanbul.

Other moments which fans appreciated this season include Kobayashi's pass on Alonso at Valencia, Schumacher's pass on Alonso at Monaco, the Alonso/Massa pit lane incident in China, Jenson Button's pit strategy gamble in Australia.

No doubt a similar exercise on a German site would have rather different results, as would a Spanish equivalent, but I think for pure drama the Istanbul incident ranks as one of the great OMG moments in recent F1 history.

Thanks for taking part. The wealth of exciting moments has certainly proved what a great season we are enjoying.
