Undoubtedly Hamilton this time. His drive was much like your typical Vettel drive to victory (although no one likes to give him DOTR on those occasions lol), where he manages to start at front, manage the tyres, but make great moves through traffic when he does have to pit.

Vettel, on the other hand, just got stuck in traffic all day and couldn't pass. Hamilton seemed to make it look easy, passing Button in about 2 laps, passing Webber in epic moves not once but twice. And Webber wasn't even that much slower than Hamilton at the time.

The other reason is Rosberg was almost a minute behind before he retired, and he certainly wasn't able to pass like Hamilton was.

No one else was particularly impressive, to be honest. Kimi's second was only after Grosjean was given penalties and Vettel just couldn't pass anyone, same with Webber; if this were a track you could pass on, Webber would have struggled to get 4th. Alonso was average, and possibly one of the few that wasn't getting held up during the race and often had a clear track.

Grosjean was exciting, and I thought the penalty on him for going off track was harsh. I'd like to see a replay to see if her really did put all 4 off. He could have given Hamilton a go for victory without that, as he was up to 2nd. But he seemed to drop off after that anyway, the penalty only cost him 15 secs but he was a long way back at the end, probably because he just couldn't get past Alonso.

I was pleased to see Vergne beat Ricciardo too. Ricciardo was several cars ahead of Vergne after the start, yet despite having one extra pit stop Vergne still caught and passed him on track.

Kimi...for being the mastermind of a two stop strategy and holding off a charging Redbull. Grosjean gets two penalties in one race so no way can he get any credit.

Lewis , his first win for Merc . A great defensive drive from Kimi although he may have been helped a little that Seb could not stay on his gearbox that much due to the heat .

Lewis, although we didn't see much of him on the box (BBC highlights) a great drive from start to flag.

Toss up between LH and KR. Went with KR since if it had been SVl in LH's place, I wouldn't have voted him DOTR, so why should I vote LH in similar circumstances?

Gotta go with the Hamster - Kimi a close 2nd for DOTR.

Lewis pushed hard, was uncompromising and managed his pace when the team needed him to. Great job.

The DOTR is Mr. Lewisham Hamster. He is German, don't you know?

Great race from him. After the difficult practise session and taking a surprise pole he took control of the race from the start. His overtaking moves are what gave him victory. He really used his head and all of his skill in that race.

Second place for Kimi. Took the Lotus to 2nd on a 2 stop strategy. Great stuff from him.

Third place for Vettel. Decent drive from him for a podium and decent points, but he got bogged down in traffic and that's why he is 3rd DOTR for me.

Hamilton for his brilliant set up and pass on Webber in turn 3.

he really needed to find every second he could to beat the SV and Red Bull...in fact im gonna say this might be one of the better drives i have seen any one put up against Vettel's during his period of dominance.

also a mention to KR for keeping SV behind him...perhaps the second best display i have seen in keeping SV at bay.

Spritle has a lot of promise if they can keep it on the circuit!
Hamilton had pole and lead most of the race, save for tyre changes. When Vettel or anyone else has a similar result, he gets the same number of votes as my DOTR...

...Grosjean.

That's true, the voting is so unfair. Oh well.

Of course some people just dislike Hamilton and don't vote for him whatever. It probably evens out.
