Abstract: A theorem of Bôcher and Grace states that the critical points of a cubic polynomial are the foci of an ellipse tangent to the sides of the triangle joining the zeros. A more general result of Siebert and others states that the critical points of a polynomial of degree $ N$ are the algebraic foci of a curve of class $ N-1$ which is tangent to the lines joining pairs of zeroes. We prove the analogous results for hyperbolic polynomials, that is, for Blaschke products with $ N$ roots in the unit disc.
