Abstract: Estimates for the deviation of certain rational functions and their polynomials of best uniform approximation on various sets are given. As a result, in some cases these deviation and polynomials are explicitly calculated. For example, the polynomials of best uniform approximation to the function $ (\alpha z + \beta )/(z - a)(1 - \bar az),\vert a\vert \ne 1$, on the unit circle are given.
