Agree with those saying Raikkonen, Verstappen and Hulk. Big day for Renault in the battle for fourth race

Max. Perfect strategy, perfect overtakes and incredible tyre management where one of the greats couldn't cope.

Verstappen

What a race. Ricciardo could actually have won this.

Disappointing:
- Vettel: Ferrari needs a new number one, urgently and desperately.
- Stroll
- Grosjean

Kimi drove a very fine race. Max was unquestionably excellent and had great pace.

I so wanted to give it to Raikkonen... but Verstappen's was the standout performance for me. A great recovery drive from P18.

Yeah these three were the top performers for me. Red Bull couldn't have done anything more with Max and Max couldn't have done anything more either.

For me it was Kimi, Max, & Lewis.

Kimi and Max for the same reasons as everyone else.

I gave the third vote to Lewis for running a smart race and knowing how to give up the battle with Max safely. He preserved his place and didn't throw away position or points when he didn't need to. It was smart racing. We have seen to much Checkers or Wreckers mentality out there in recent times.

Unusually, I'm going for the top three finishers. Kimi for the start and the great race, Max for his tyre management and holding Lewis back (fairly, even); and Lewis for his run back up to contention and putting up a good fight there at the end.

Max for 18th to 2nd, Kimi, not just for the victory but for realising - when his pit wall suggested he go easy on his defence against Hamilton - that the long game was to hold him up, make him work for the pass, taking the life out of his tyres for later on.

I read that differently like Kimi saying don't expect me to do anything crazy like he wasn't prepared to ruin his race so as to ruin Hamilton's race, Kimi knew he could win the race.

Kimi, Max, Lewis in that order. Good to see last decade's Kimi back for a guest appearance ;).

I have a feeling we'll see in Mexico, if last year was any indication.

Voted Kimi, finally making up a place at the start and then winning, and Max for a monster drive from the back. I was so enthralled by what was happening with the top 5 that I have absolutely no idea what happened with the midfield. What a fantastic race.

Kimi and Max.

Max really has matured into a driver without any apparent weaknesses. I don't think there's a driver on the grid today who wouldn't have troubles beating him were they teammates.

Without any apparent weakness?

His actual weakness allowed the slower Ricciardo to beat him.

Pace-wise, over both a single lap and a race distance there is little to find fault with. However there is still an apparent weakness, and it is the reason Lewis gave him such a wide berth when trying to overtake.

I predict that Max's first proper title challenge will end in a rain of carbon fibre shards. He seems to have learned nothing from this year.

So you summed up your overall praise of Verstappen as a driver in what he did in just one race?

Has matured into does seem to imply the present state as opposed to the past.

Oh my bad. I misread the post. Instead you were on the Ferrari is faster than the Merc kick again. Sorry.

Yep in replying to the poster who always says that the Mercedes is faster than the Ferrari hence he would like to see what Verstappen could do in a Mercedes rather than what he could do in a Ferrari.

Am wondering how four people justified voting for Vettel in that race???? :?

After causing his own spin he did make up a bunch of positions that he shouldn't have had to make in the first place. The only decent thing I can say he did all day was cleanly pass Valtteri Bottas. He wore Bottas down, set him up and was ready to pounce when Valtteri blew the corner. Other than that one thing, Seb did not cover himself in glory.

Well, presumably you're talking about one race, since at the GP before he crashed into Kimi while coming back on track and blamed it on Kimi. That wasn't an example of a mature driver with no weaknesses.

Isn't that Verstappen is immature thing getting a bit tiresome by now?

I never read that when we're talking about someone like Vettel, and he has easily as many incidents where he hits people. Not to mention people like Grosjean, Stroll, Magnussen, etc.

That's because with Vettel there's no chance he's going to mature out of it - he is mature. We're giving Verstappen the benefit of a doubt here, whereas Vettel is plainly just having a mental collapse this season.

I don't know why you don't hear it about Stroll, though.

It's actually giving Verstappen the benefit of the doubt that he will improve.
