  1. I guess Max for making the least mistakes. While the racing at the front was really fun, there were a ton of mistakes made by the drivers. Piastri #2. He seemed like he had more pace, but didn’t want to upset the team. McLaren also blew the race a bit for Norris. Norris could have came in on the first lap of the first SC. George really should have finished second with his tire advantage at the end and would have if it weren’t for multiple mistakes that let three cars get by.

    1. Max went out of track at turn 1, so he didn’t make fewer mistakes than Norris. Correct me if I’m wrong.

    2. Norris was already past the pit entry when the SC was called (so it was a choice between gambling on it going to become a full SC or deciding to go another lap), looking back it might have been the better option to just not pit and continue on those older inters (and risk them losing too much temperature under SC and become a sitting duck after the restart, but the restart here is pretty easy to manage).

      1. Sorry but not true.

        SC was called 50 seconds after Logan crashed, 30 seconds later Logan switched off the engine and got out the car – 20 seconds before SC was called.

        Given location of Logan’s car by then SC or VSC was 100% certain. So McLaren should have known it was coming and could discuss what to do when it comes or given their lead pre-ampt SC and pit anyway.

        Then when Norris was on back straight, SC was called prior to Norris passing last sign – giving Norris 3 seconds to decide to pit, plenty of time to go straight into the pit.

        1. Just saw Lando’s own comment on that SC timing:

          “We didn’t do a good enough job as a team to box when we should have done and not get stuck behind the safety car. So I don’t think it was a luck or unlucky kind of thing.

          “I don’t think it was the same as Miami. This was just making a wrong call. It’s on me and it’s on the team and it’s something we’ll discuss after.

  2. Oh, honorable mention to Checo and Zhou (I don’t even consider Logan an F1 driver – so, I’ll exclude him). Those guys were really on it!

    BTW, I almost thought Binotto was back this weekend.

  3. “Pierre Gasly!”
    – Bruno Famin, probably.

  4. Sergio Perez.
    I mean, if Horner thinks he is the best choice there is, who am I to argue?

    1. If Horner hasn’t put a performance clause in Sergio’s contract, he might have made one of the worst driver decisions of all time. If Ferrari and McLaren keep improving, not only will Red bull lose the WCC, but it will be Max vs either 2 Ferraris or 2 McLarens every weekend, and they’ll be surely splitting strategies and working as a team to beat Max.

  5. I decided to go for NOR as the DOTW, but VER for DOTD.

      I assume you reversed the accolades.

  6. Has to be Max. He made the difference once again.

  7. Verstappen and Norris were both good, but Albon’s double overtake is what made my race. Historic!

  8. Norris for me for being very clever and managing his tyres in the first stint while Verstappen and Russell wore theirs out pushing too hard.

    Deserved the win based on his pace once he got the lead but then robbed by that SC timing.

    Max was never really challenged and didn’t have to do much for the win. Not his fault of course I just enjoyed the Norris drive more with the passes etc.

  9. Norris for me.. he overtook Max and Russell for the lead on a slippery track and blasted 15 seconds in to the lead at a pace of 2 secs a lap quicker than both of them.

    I would say Russell and max were stars of quali but Norris was the star of the race.

  10. LH … cuz he needs it ….
