I wanted to give to Norris, but also Leclerc. So I went for the race winner.

Albon came good at the end too.

Not too sure who to give it to but I suppose Leclerc for his debut win.

Leclerc not just for the race win, but the management of the race that even gave him the opportunity to hold off Hamilton instead of dealing with a Vettel-like drop off.

Norris ran a quiet race. Leaders cleared off, and until the final lap Perez was a ways off. While that takes more talent than I'll ever have, I don't think that kind of performance warrants dotd.

I was going to vote for Alonso as usual, because he always extracts 105% of performance from his car, so people always say, but this poll didn't have this option today

Lando and Charles both deserve DOTR in my opinion, but as I can only vote for one, it’s the latter.

It has to be https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZelPcA2Dz2c

I think Lando deserves more praise than some would give him. Yes it was a lonely race but he got there when others were throwing it away. Kept a very cool head to miss the accident and keep a consistent pace.

The other stand out was Albon.

We appear to have some very talented young drivers coming through although we very sadly lost one on Saturday.

Three young guns fighting it out for DoGP.

Lando Norris had one of those first corners that every racer dreams of. Everyone in front is busy bumping in to each other and a beautiful gap opens up. He grabbed the opportunity and then made full use of it. Of course he was never going to get close to the Mercs and Ferraris but he built a good lead over everyone else, so he was clearly doing things right. He's a real talent.

Alex Albon was always going to have a sink-or-swim Belgian GP. In the first few laps it wasn't looking great but then he hit the sweet spot. After that he was mightily impressive.

Charles Leclerc outshone his 4xWC team-mate in both qually and the race. And he won, so he is my DoGP.

But let's not forget the former Young Gun (when that was a proper team) who chased down Leclerc in the closing stages and would almost certainly have won if there had been a couple of more laps. Honourable mention.

Norris for me - but only just. Albon and LeClerc were in the picture too.

Also - more excellent radio from Kimi

LeClerc for a mature and measured performance in very difficult circumstances, with as others have said honourable mentions for Lando Norris and Albon - who disappointed initially but after the pitstop seemed to have a completely different car - and used it to good effect.

He had an engine upgrade, I wonder if they were restricting it or at least his use of it, in the first part? He certainly brought some smiles to the team's faces though.

We'll see what the engine upgrade brings. I think I heard it on the Autosport podcast that they reverted to a spec 2 for the race. Still it was good to see them up there, would have nice have seen both cars up there

Red Bull report that Verstappen was on the old-spec (3) engine.
Albon took the new-spec (4), which is why he had the grid penalty. His explanation for the 'race of two halfs' is that he couldn't get the first set of tyres to 'switch on', but when he put softs on the car felt a lot better to drive.
