I've changed my mind. I voted for Lewis but I've just watched Eric's interview with Lee Mackenzie so I want to transfer my vote to him.
Because:
1. He reminded me of the overtake on Mad Max.
2. That was the most honest, most human, most emotional interview I've ever seen in the pen.

Rosberg. He did exactly what was needed. And when he was told he needed to make a pass on Verstappen, he immediately made the pass and gapped him.

That was a superb pass. He really took that to Verstappen.

Rosberg, because he did what he needed to do to win the WDC.

Kimi. I was blinded by his start to overtake Ricciardo. So blinded that I couldn't clearly see who could have driven better.

I rarely vote for Hamilton, but he gets it from me this time. Just totally in control. Focused, single-minded and perfectly happy to say 'Sod You' to his team....

Rosberg - didn't collapse under the pressure and had enough in the tank to get the result he needed.

Hate to look like a fanboy, but I've got to give it to Verstappen again. He was last facing the wrong way and had to come back through the field. What would have happened if Verstappen had emerged in front of Hamilton after that first stop, instead of just behind? He could have actually won the race if he kept them both behind, though that's a big IF. Still only ended up right behind them while Kimi and Daniel couldn't keep up.

Vettel did decent, passed two RB's, but would have ever passed the Mercedes? I think the minute he would have passed Nico, Lewis would have disappeared.

I think it is very hard to judge the relative performances of the Red Bull and Ferrari drivers.

Lewis slowed everybody down, so that made it easier for Verstappen (early) and Vettel (later) to come back.

I think in a normal race
* Verstappen would have been a distant 6th, maybe 5th
* Vettel would have been 5th, at best 3rd
* the Mercedes drivers would both have disappeared

That takes nothing away from Verstappen or Vettel, but the circumstances were very much helping them today.

I think if Verstappen would have appeared in front, Hamilton would have just passed him.
* he needed to win
* he could go much faster if he wanted/needed to

Maybe one of the Red Bulls would have stood a chance if they had used Vettel's tactics, but not this way.

That was a great move...more so because max is max and it could have easily ended with a retirement.

He took control of his destiny so he gets my vote as well.
