Driver of the weekend - Malaysia

Cast your vote for the Malaysian Grand Prix.

Standings after Singapore

Code: Select all

1  |  Ricciardo  | 28  |
2  |  Hamilton   | 25  |
3  |  Rosberg    | 18  |
4  |  Alonso     | 16  |
5  |  Grosjean   | 10  |

13 |  Bottas     |  1  |
14 |  Sainz      |  1  |
15 |  Wehrlein   |  1  |
Rules & Format
- Voting is based on driver performance (not who has the prettiest girlfriend/best haircut)
- Voting is based on performance of the whole race weekend, so qualifying counts towards your assessment.
- You only get one vote
- The poll will start on either on the day of the GP (or Monday if I am unable to for some reason)
- The poll will run until Friday so that it will always end before the next GP
- The top three voted for drivers will earn points towards a championship table as follows:
- 1st: 5 points
- 2nd: 3 points
- 3rd: 1 point
- Ties will be decided by finishing position
I'm stuck between Alonso and Hamilton. Hamilton didn't really have to do a lot after T1 so Alonso had the most impressive race by far but didn't really compete in qualifying whilst Lewis was dominant over one lap.

Yeah I'm struggling too. Hard to find a complete weekend and Lewis and Alonso are the ones I'm toying with as well. Tempted by Dan but he lost Q.

I'll wait to see what others say again before making a decision as there is usually stuff I miss.

Has to be Alonso doesn't it? Phenomenal from dead last. He had similar race pace to Raikkonen's Ferrari.

Verstappen. Out qualified the best qualifier on the grid. Thought back after an unlucky start and would have won if Red Bull hadn't pitted him under the final VSC. Also showed some maturity we have not seen before in staying behind and not throwing toys out of the pram despite Red Bull denying him the chance to win.

Hamilton was in imperious form all weekend and was robbed of the win. He gets my vote.

Poor luck took away a win he would have richly deserved based on his form over the weekend.

Unless you believe the conspiracy theories of course...

He was robbed by his engine. It's an expression.

Alonso had a good race but didn't fully take part in qualy- so i voted Hamilton. Impressive all weekend. Shame he came away empty handed :(
You just need to be accepted for who you are and be proud of who you are and that is what I'm trying to do.
Lewis Hamilton
