P38 in workshop has a lot of promise if they can keep it on the circuit!
For what he did on the circuit,I voted for Ocon.For what he did for the image of the sport it would have been Kimi.

Hamilton. Pole position. Won the race. And had to work hard for it.

Raikkonen? You must be joking! If we had a PR Dept of the race, yes, Ferrari would be the clear winner. But Kimi was only doing what the PR masters told him to do. And if it was left to him he'd probably have just grunted and told the kid to man-up.

That's a tad hash. I hope the Ferrari Kid, isn't reading your post. He might just start blubbering, again.

Mr Wehrlein should have been the walk up start for this
Except Mr Alonso kept that dungheap of a Honda engine intact long enough to actually finish a grand prix, and set the 4th fastest race lap!!

For me Pascal Wehrlein

The Perez/Ocon combo did well, but really Perez only what 10 secs ahead of his rookie teammate, meanwhile Ocon beaten by his teammate so he can't have DOTR. They did well still though. Also helped by Verstappen and Kimi wrecking, Bottas retiring, plus Massa and Alonso ejected themselves from the top 10.

Alonso? The fact he flew past 2 Williams on the straight should go against him as DOTR, since the Honda is supposed to be so slow on the straights. He was a solid 7th in quali, but in the race 2 laps down, without Magnussen's issue at the end would only have had Massa, Palmer, Stroll behind him. 12th place, not DOTR material.

Vettel and Hamilton probably droves their hearts out, but it's hard to give it to them. Vettel lost the race. Hamilton won the race but really the Bottas roadblock that cost Vettel at least 5 seconds and gaining another 10 secs under his VSC pit stop probably won it for him.

Wow, Raikkonen getting praised for something he didn't initiate. Because Raikkonen is known for giving so much of his time for the fans.... right??

It wasn't Raikkonen's idea to get that little kid a garage pass. It wasn't Ferrari's either. It was a Liberty Media representative who contacted Ferrari and asked them to act on a great PR opportunity. And so Ferrari acted. I'm guessing it was all part of Liberty Media's initiative to boost fan engagement, which proved to be a real success all weekend.

Well done Liberty Media. Although, I must say, this type of thing has been happening in Melbourne for years. The Australian GP organises have done a great job with what they call 'The Melbourne Walk' where everyone and anyone involved with F1 can meet the fans for photos, autographs and a chat (accept for Raikkonen who tends to ignore or run though it). Australia also has two seater F1 rides, etc. All which seems to have made an impression on Liberty Media, and they now want to introduce this type of fan interaction during every F1 weekend.

Do you have a link confirming this? It is reported as a joint Ferrari/event organisers action

'A social media surge ensued, with organisers and Ferrari quick to react and bring the boy – wearing a Ferrari cap and shirt – into the exclusive paddock area with his family to meet Raikkonen.' - http://www.iol.co.za/motoring/f1-gra...s-hero-9137575

Sorry, I don't have a link to an "official statement" from Liberty Media's F1 communications confirming it was their F1 promotions and communications staff that initiated this. I can guarantee you it wasn't initiated by Ferrari and/or Raikkonen, as is being widely reported. Even the local TV news is saying it was Ferrari's idea.


edit: A quick search and I found THIS from James Allen.

"In the paddock a quick thinking F1 comms manager suggested that they go and fetch the young lad and his family to come over to the F1 paddock to try to cheer him up. Ferrari was looped in and they brought him to Ferrari’s hospitality where he met Raikkonen."

It's all I can find for now. A Liberty Media F1 employee. Believe what, or who you want.
But from my experience, I think I'll take James Allen's word over Alan Baldwin's any day.

Never said I didn't believe it - just wondering what the source was confirming it.

James Allen does clarify it was an employee from Formula One Group - so not necessarily a Liberty Media employee per se.

Full credit to her for initiating it, and kudos to Ferrari and Kimi for acting upon it.

I was under the impression Liberty Media owns 100% of Formula One. Which includes the... "Formula One Group". Are you saying that this F1 communications manager that JA mentions is not an employee of Liberty Media??

Didn't read anywhere in JA's article that confirms it was a female employee. Can you confirm that it was in fact a female employee of "The Formula One Group", and not Liberty Media? Do you have a link?

it was a team effort imo. it took Kimi/ferrari to agree and for Liberty to promptly issue paddock passes.

its nice that they have decided to act like normal people for a change though.

anyways PW for my DOTR. he clearly has his career back on track.
