  1. Kevin. And Carlos. And well, Lando.

  2. I voted Norris. But I do think there were a few others who did a really good job.

    And yeah, I can even see why some people voted for K-Mag here, given his impact on the weekend he really was an incredibly influence on how things went! I do hope this earns him that 12th penalty point so that he can watch the other guys race, cool down a bit and get back to racing ON track without overdoing it with the macho aggressive moves.

      4 penalty points for something that looked to be more sargeant’s fault though would be rediculous. Sargeant looked to be oblivious that Magnussen was still there.

      1. Remember he had even more going on after that though @thegianthogweed. And it was up to Magnussen to back out there since he barely had his front wheel ahead of Sargeant’s rear wheel as the car whose behind.

    Not sure I agree with the Norris voters. He mage a big mistake in qualifying for the sprint then was involved in an incident in the race, which sort of hid how bad the impact of his qualifying will have been. In the race, he didn’t get a very good start, and Piastri without all the upgrades was running ahead of him for a huge chunk of the race, until he got ahead all down to good luck. His race pace was excellent. His sprint qualifying was poor, and overall, his weekend wasn’t all that great. The win was a great highlight, but a lot of luck was involved.

    Verstappen also wsan’t very good this weekend. He made an unusual mistake in the race. I couldn’t vote him either. Ricciardo was excellent for the sprint, but really poor in the race. It’s pretty difficult to find a stand out driver this time.

    1. In the sprint I actually don’t think there was much he did wrong, but he got hit and that was the end of his sprint. In the race his start was fine, but he was then right behind Carlos who had to evade Perez.

    2. Was about to say as well: he had a bad sq3, yes, but he was innocent in the sprint, and the rest of his sprint quali he looked on form, and I also couldn’t find a driver who was excellent all weekend, the usual suspects didn’t work this time.

    3. @thegianthogweed I tend to agree. I feel like the win and the resultant votes for Norris are more of a lifetime achievement award than an appreciation of his performance this weekend. He’s had much cleaner weekends where he got podiums or even lower results, but maximised everything he had better than this weekend.

      It’s usually hard to pick a DoTW on sprint weekends, because usually every driver has at least 1 or 2 points against them, so I also can’t really pick a stand-out this weekend.

    4. Completely agree. I really had no idea who to pick. All in all Charles was pretty impressive in the Ferrari this weekend so I went for him.

    I love Lando, and glad he won…
    But imo Oscar > Lando in terms of performance this weekend, especially considering he only had half the upgrades.

    1. Yes, in light of the upgrades it’s probably true, but it’s hard to evaluate the impact in a quali vs race setting, the gains might not be the same in all conditions.

  5. Hamilton did pretty well IMO.

    1. Not as well as Trump!

      1. Lmao

    I made a bit of an error here as I voted Lando more based on the grand prix rather than the weekend.

    Still, at least I saved myself the more difficult choice. Lando certainly didn’t have a perfect weekend but alternate options are not clear cut.

  7. DOTW & DOTD: NOR, no one particularly stood out in all sessions combined, so the only fitting choice.

    Good weekend for Lando obviously, Max, Oscar, Carlos, Yuki, Lewis and Kev

  9. Difficult. Leclerc, Verstappen, Norris, Piastri and Hülkenberg are the most obvious candidates to me, but noone really stood out. Verstappen was great in qualifying but made a mistake in the race that may or may have not compromised his pace.

    Leclerc was rock solid and consistently fast in any competitive session, but the terminal spin on his first flying lap in practice was less than ideal.
    Norris was poor when it mattered in qualifying, but extremely fast (and lucky) in the race.
    Piastri appeared to have the measure on Norris, but his pace on hard tyres was just poor.
    Hülkenberg did great in all qualifyings and the sprint. In in the race he was on a two stop strategy which didn’t help his progress. But he couldn’t even catch an Alpine in the end so his pace wasn’t overwhelming too.
    I think I go for Verstappen.

  10. Few drivers impressed me this weekend.

    Lando Norris
    Great sprint quali pace, amazing race and well managed for his first win.

    Oscar Piastri
    Considering he had half the upgrades he outraced his team-mate until the pitstops.

    Lewis Hamilton
    Comprehensively outdrove George and to be pressuring a Red Bull in his current car was impressive. Quali pace and sprint race was disappointing.

    Charles Leclerc
    Great pace all weekend despite only doing two practice laps.

    Tough to pick a Driver of the Weekend but I plumped for Lando because as I support the British drivers and teams (and Ferrari!) I was so happy I was dancing around the house this morning after the recorded C4 highlights (missed the live Sky race as was racing a mate on F1 ’23 and fell asleep before the highlights).

  11. Just 1 important statement: Piastri did better than Lando.

  12. Fair enough most will choose Lando. But I don’t think he had a great weekend. He had great pace at times but also made mistakes.He lucked into a winning strategy by virtue of not being the top dog McLaren in the race up to that point. I feel Lando had much better weekends when he finished P5 or something than this one. Anyway for me the driver that had sustained performance the whole weekend even after basically not having any practice was Leclerc. Maximized everything Ferrari could get out of this weekend with where their car was. So he gets my vote.
