Re: Driver(s) of the Day - 2020 Hungarian Grand Prix

People actually arguing over Leclerc/Vettel? This was one of those weekends. The start of the race almost dictated how it all went. When the first pitstops hit, they all flooded in. Some stayed out, some pitted early. The guys started expecting a wet track and potentially more rain - instead it drie...

The best things Perez has done in his career is usually down to looking after the tyres and his smoother driving style. Would I rate him as a possible champion? Nope.
