Lewis. Had to overtake Max and Bottas for the win, manage his tyres behind Bottas while trying to keep a gap to Max...pretty impressive balancing act

Was Lando Norris on mediums or hards for the final stint? If he was on mediums, then that is seriously impressive, and he gets my vote. If not, I will go with Esteban Ocon, with Lando a close second missing out due to qualifying. Hamilton was the driver of the race (if Norris was on hards), but I vote based on the whole weekend and Hamilton was outqualified by Bottas.

Shout out to Mick Schumacher too. Beat Latifi's Williams, and beat Mazepin by over a minute.

If anyone’s wondering why there was no ‘official’ driver of the day, Reddit users voted em mass and gave 90% of the vote to Mazespin

I’m not even joking lol....

Ugh. What idiots, pointlessly ruining the vote. It's not even like it hasn't been done before (Australia 2016, the first race of the official driver of the day).

The official website lists the Driver of the Day as Sergio Perez:

1 Sergio Perez
2 Lewis Hamilton
3 Max Verstappen
4 Daniel Ricciardo
5 Fernando Alonso

I don't get it. How can the majority of F1 fans vote Perez as the driver of the day, while the likes of Lando Norris and Esteban Ocon don't even make the top five? Unless it is a vote on who can be left out on the same set of tyres for the longest (and clearly that wasn't a strategic move to get Perez the best possible result, it was to slow Hamilton down), I don't see how Perez can be Driver of the Day.

Excellent by Schumacher in beating Latifi.

Mazepin seemed to lose most of his time, relative to Schumacher, in being lapped. He seems very nervous when the leaders approach, and the Perez moment wouldn't have helped (I think Perez should have been a little smarter at the point, but hey ho).

In about 3 laps he seemed to drop 30 seconds to Schumacher whilst being lapped.



Being lapped without losing time is a skill that not a lot of young drivers have. I rememner Anthony Davidson coming to a stop whilst being lapped in a Minardi at the Hungaroring back in the day. He literally stopped on the inside approaching a corner.

It was an exhaust temperature sensor that was malfunctioning. The engine management was reducing power to compensate, until a bypass was selected.

Hambone. Didn't drive the perfect race (as in on pole, out first, lights to flag) but had enough nouse to exploit the weaknesses of his opponents.

I voted Hamilton. Good drive, overtaking the best of the rest.

Honourable mentions to Ocon, Ricciardo, Norris and nice to see Schumacher having a battle.
