OK here we are again. We will start with a quick reminder of what this competition is about.
After every race, I will run a poll "Driver of the race". You can vote however you like, but for this to work members need to vote for the best race weekend performance, regardless if its your favorite driver or not. It will become pointless if Montoya fans vote for Juan or Webber fans vote for Mark (unless they deserve it of course ).
The polls will run for 10 days, and then the votes will show a winner, 2nd and 3rd.
Winner - 5 points
2nd - 3 points
3rd - 1 point
We will continue to do this every race and at the end, the points will be added and a Ten-Tenths Driver of the Year will be crowned.
Our champion could drive a Ferrari, Williams, Sauber or even a Minardi, as the race results are unimportant, but what the driver acheived on a race by race basis over the season.
First nominations (others can be added):
Michael Schumacher. Quick when it mattered and what a restart
Rubens Barrichello. Probably the fastest Ferrari driver over the weekend.
Fernado Alonso. What a start.
Jarno Trulli. Climbed through the field from the back.
Juan Pablo Montoya. Ditto.
Takumo Sato. A podium and some great overtaking.
Jenson Button. Had pace.
Oliver Panis. A quick Toyota in Q and a decent lap in the race, finished with decent points.
Kimi Raikkonen. Out of position, but not in a DC way.
Zsolt Baumgartner. A point. For Minardi.
Have I missed anyone worth a vote?
