  1. Was a close one between Lewis and Max this weekend.

    Gave it to Lewis as I thought he was mega on Sunday… with the right strategy, his stint on worn mediums was brilliant, and I thought he could have taken the win in the 3rd fastest car this weekend if the safety car didn’t come out.

    1. I am going to agree with you!

      1. Guys would vote for Lewie even if he wasn’t entered!

    2. Agree he was great; I did feel he was faster than the Ferraris.
      But his two bad starts and his not quite so firm defending at times were minor negative points.
      I feel, Charles had even less negatives on Sunday and was great throughout, so I would give him the nod.

    3. That move by Hamilton to overtake both the Ferrrai and the Redbul, was the move of the Grand prix. Its of those memories which will stay with me for a while. And then he deliberately leaves the inside open for the Ferrai to come back, when any other driver would have slamed it shut and suffered the consequences. So Cheeky so chivalrous.

      1. And the crowd cheer with the double overtake was INSANE, couldn’t hear commentators during it!

  2. It’s hard to pick someone, not because there are multiple contenders, but more because I don’t think anyone did a particularly stellar job this weekend. There’s something to pick about every driver that I’d say would disqualify them from being considered exceptional.

    In the end I picked Perez for getting that P2 from the back of the grid, over Sainz who deserves credit for shutting down those ridiculous team orders and profiting from failures of others to get both a first pole and a win.

  3. It’s Latifi for me

  4. For me, Alonso or Norris.

  5. I will never pick one driver who ‘I think’ performed better than anyone else, as it’s totally pointless… The driver never works in isolation.
    However, I will say that Leclerc did a great job in the race – particularly after Ocon’s SC when he was lumbered with the wrong tyres.
    Had they pitted him ahead of Sainz (like they should have) he would certainly have won. Easily.

  6. I took the easy way out and gave it to Sainz.

    Probably one of the few times he’s genuinely been in a position to win a race, in terms of car, pace and strategy, and he won it.

    That started with qualifying on pole, and his overall race management wasn’t all that bad, especially deciding that trying to hold back the other cars at the final restart would have caused him undue pressure and likely cost him a win.

    It’ll be interesting to see if he grows some more after finally getting a win or returns to “almost but not quite”.

  7. Sainz was Johnny Herbert lucky.

  8. I was initially going to choose SAI but ultimately went for HAM as DOTW.
    DOTD choice is slightly harder, but PER with honorable mentions to the above two, MSC & LAT.
    The biggest disappointments are RUS & TSU.

  9. Without a sacrificed Leclerc and an handicapped Max, lewis would only be 5th. So no great peformance there.
    Some nice fights between the three. The way Lewis passed both battling cars was great, the way Charles reclaimed the position with worn tires and broken wing was even better.
    Max did great with a car that was less then 80% and this resulted damage control in great style.
    Perez fought back from last helped by a SC but still.

  10. Probably Hamilton for me, although close with Verstappen. I don’t think either Ferrari driver was actually that impressive, credit to Sainz though for actually getting the pole and win. Not really sure what to make of Perez’s weekend either, although even if the safety car hadn’t happened, it would have been a strong recovery drive. Being ‘Leclerced’ early in a grand prix often seems to bring out the best in him…

    Alonso and Norris also strong, and pleased for Schumacher as well.

  11. Guanyu Zhou who else?

    1. @grapmg Literally anyone who completed a racing lap? He could have been on course for a DOTW win, he was excellent in qualifying, but you shouldn’t vote for someone just because they survived a big crash.

      1. He was excellent in qualli and didn’t make one mistake in the race. No just kidding don’t take the voting serious it’s the usual suspects who will be on top.

    2. How about Russell for taking him out?

  12. Voted Hamilton. He was finally faster that Russell at qualy, and took that Mercedes to a podium.

    1. With one Ferrari hampered by strategy, one Red Bull hampered by damage and one Mercedes crashed, where else should the Mercedes be than on the podium?

  13. Lewis got totally left the door open for Perez and he is DOD? THat is sooo funny. Perez when from last to second and he is not DOD? That is so funny. This poll has the same credibility as American Idol. Vote for performance not for who you like for gods sake. I would say Perez 1, Leclerc 2.

  14. Perez for me.

  15. All drivers should have formed orderly two second gaps behind Sir Lewis Hamilton so that he could have won his ‘home’ Grand Prix. They also should have carried flasks of tea for the protesting people, stopped to discuss their cause and then continued for the remaining laps of the ‘race’. That would have been politically correct!

    Also, the driver of the day would have been easier to arrive at.

  16. WOW, what a ridiculous British biased poll
