    Hamilton for me. Could have nicked it if the dice had fallen differently.

    1. Or binned in in the first lap (again!) by squeezing a Spaniard too hard. Very lucky to survive that.

      And let’s not get started about team spirit.

    2. I really don’t understand how Hamilton would have won in a straight fight (without safety cars or VSC).

      If Max pitted for new tires around lap 50 or so, he would have been only ~8 – 10 seconds behind LH, with much fresher tires and a quicker car, with 22 laps to go. Overtaking seemed fairly easy when George passed Lewis on different tires, so Max would have had an even easier job to catch and pass, given the straight line speed of the RBR.

      Hamilton made too many errors in the race including not asking for softs himself during last safety car.
      Had contact with Sainz on lap 1 and had a poor restart due to choosing wrong spot and PU setting.

    4. And not George Russel? same car but George forced the tyre decision, for me he did a better job than Lewis, took the decision into his own hands and got the better result.

  2. ALO was the guy who showed the rest what an early charge to hards could do. He was a bit unfortunate with the VSC and the SC, “El Plan” was to go with the hards to the end but then everybody got free pitstops for softs and it became a lot more complicated. Gets my vote today. OK, Max was very good and clean again, surgical precision in the critical pass (started it inches past the start line), after the guy ahead made the rookie mistake of accelerating too early and gift Max the slipstream. Ahem, still on time to learn to race, I guess.

    1. Last week Alo said he didn’t know how to do anything else, this week even that’s specialisation’s gone.
      It occurred to me at the time he’d been reminded of the horrific carnage of last year’s Mugello by the F2 race and purposefully led off early.

    2. ALO for me.
      Took a chance with the hards and drove masterfully for 40 laps.
      Also held off Norris over the last 8 laps with 10 lap old softs while Norris had new softs.
      Reeled in Perez near the end.

    3. How stupid can one be to suggest the F1 champ with most titles and wins should learn racing. You could start to learn using some brain.

  3. If I think who could be the hero in this race I come up with hamilton, so I went with him, I see we’re quite a minority, but the fact he had a realistic chance to win on a mercedes was impressive imo.

    Having said that, it was always gonna be an outside shot, if they had put him on softs with the VSC he could’ve defended more, but let’s not forget DRS still had to be enabled, I feel it’d have been hard to keep verstappen behind, and if neither SC nor VSC had come, he would’ve been in the lead as soon as verstappen stopped, but then I have a hard time thinking he could resist him, but really, he was the only threat for victory verstappen had.

    1. Had Hamilton pitted, he would have been behind Ver.

  4. I don’t normally go for the dominant car/driver combo but Verstappen for me. Faultless all weekend

  5. DOTW & DOTD: VER, no one else stood out enough for either consideration.

  6. I can’t decide between Max, Lewis, Not George (his Saterday was not good enough) Ocon and Charles.

  7. It could have been great for Mick Schumacher, but those two horror pitstops did him in. Stroll had a really good weekend. Alonso a very solid race. Both Mercedes drivers did a great job as well, after missing out a bit on saturday.

    Given how close it was for pole and Max made it work, and then really brought it home I voted for him this time though,

    1. What happened in the pits at Haas? Swapped Mechanics with Ferrari again?

  8. Danny Ric gets 2%?

  9. Hamilton. He was strong throughout the practice sessions, drove a superb Quali lap and drove a very strong race. It was only really the strategy error that dropped him off the Podium

    Max I have as a very close 2nd and the only reason for this is he has the quicker car.

  10. Max.

  11. Who on earth voted for Daniel? this poll is not for your favourite driver… Daniel is my favourite, but really?

  12. Alonso, got blocked in quali not his fault. Then on Sunday he got 110% out of the car. The (V)SCs went against him: no complainting on the radio, just dealt with it masterfully.
