Luck happens sometimes in F1. It's how you capitalise on it that counts.

Lewis blew everyone away in qualifying and dominated the race - but starting from the front in a Mercedes he was always going to do that. Was it a great race drive? No, not really. You got the impression that he really wasn't having to try very hard at all, with Bottas mired in a scrap with Verstappen there was no need for Hamilton to push - a cruise and collect victory. So he did everything right and deserved the victory but it's not 'driver of the Grand Prix' stuff for me.

Perez would have got my vote if he'd not clobbered Albon in his attempt to take 4th - a bit more patience would I suspect have seen Perez breeze past Albon in a straight line somewhere.

Sooo - Norris gets the vote mainly for the last lap opportunism. Good work from McLaren to switch the drivers, without that Norris wouldn't have got a far as he did.

i havent seen much on this but what sort of set up did Ham use in the wet quali?

a comparison between lap times of the two Austrian GPs may give more insight into the race day trim, but given how much better he was in quali it might be fair to say he ran the race with more of a 'wet' setup?

would that make his race performance all the more impressive?

although i suppose that could be said for several drivers on race day?

Hey, if people can choose DNFs as driver of the day then qualifying counts.

And that's exactly my question. What if a driver crushes everyone in practice, quali, then bins it half way through the race. What's the GP? The race itself or the race meeting? Worthy of discussion.

Same token, say like this week pouring with rain and dominant qualifying performance. But come race day the setup is so rain forward it's terrible for the race? Could an amazing quali with ho hum race for him, and all other drivers make that single performance worthy of driver of the GP?

I've always regarded the Grand Prix, as the whole weekend event. So when it comes to the "Driver of the Grand Prix" poll, I take into account qualifying.

I honestly don't care much about Perez's mistake - since he charged from 17th to nearly passing a Red Bull on sheer pace, and managed to hold onto only making 11 places from his starting position instead of a possible 13, still giving it to him...

Yes, Driver of the Grand Prix is left open to interpretation - it can certainly include the GP weekend as a whole.

Top job by Hamilton, reaffirming what a driver he is with an excellent qually and possibly flawless race. Norris was racey and seems to be growing in confidence. Again, a worthy contender. Pérez had a solid battle through the field.

I will go for Verstappen in fact. Really excellent stuff against Bottas. The Red Bull is the nearest contender to Mercedes, but is not on their pace yet, in theory. Yet he dominated his team-mate and seemed to extract it all from the car (and a bit more in the qualifying spin).

Qualifying sets up the race, so if a driver does something exceptional in qualifying I factor it in. It is the first high pressure point of the weekend, possibly the highest.

Practice is always discounted as I regard that as experimental.
