Why any votes for Ricciardo ?

He went around slowly with no possible challenges.

I voted for him because he was fast on all sessions as well and deserved it. But very lucky it happened here, any other track and I think he would not have finished on points. Gasly and Hulk also did good race. Although I think they could have protected Sainz as there was no way MV was going to overtake both of them on 1 move.

Was down on power and transmission issues. Managed to stay out front with a wounded car, had to change his driving style to adapt to the conditions and won the race. Slow at the front yes to an extent but still gathered enough ability to maintain his position to fend off vettel who was attacking at that stage.

Not many would have finished the race under those circumstances much less win

I'm wondering what Hamilton, Vettel and Raikkonen did to deserve DotD. I know I popped out for ten minutes but what did I miss?

I know it is a silly thing to get angry about. But votes for Verstappen? ugh... really? I mean I actually can understand that as this is driver of the day and not driver of the weekend. And Verstappen did have a reasonable race and did do more overtaking than anyone. But what seems really silly is that he put himself in this situation. Yes, that was another day, so I sort of get the reasoning at the same time. But basically, if a driver like Bottas (i know this wouldn't happen) purposely crashed in qualifying and started last for example. Doing this on Saturday from the rules of this thread shouldn't technically exclude him from one of the drivers of the day as it wasn't race day. Then he recovers to 10th. Would the fact that he just started further back trigger more votes?

This just seems really silly to me that Verstappen has 5 votes. I know practice and qualifying was yesterday, but todays result (race day) was 9th. 9th in the best car? That is not good. I know he came from 20th, but that was his fault. And again I am thinking that I'm not thinking that this is for driver of the day and not the weekend.

I wish we could have a DOTW poll back again. But for some reason after several years on this forum, I still don't understand how to create them :D



Does anyone else think it is a bit much to vote Verstappenen despite the fact his race was reasonable? The main reason why I would be against it is because he got a bad race result. And that was something that happened today. And despite the cause of this bad result not being on the same day, it was totally his fault that he basically lost out a very possible win.

I didn't vote for him but as you said, it is driver of the day so what he did yesterday was irrelevant. He made some moves and kept clean. in a race where no drivers stood out I can see why someone would vote for him.

I agree with you. I have just had a look back to last year's Monaco driver of the day thread and Hamilton got 12 votes on that for what was a similar to race to Verstappen had today. At least people are consistent :lol:

Verstappen was driver of the day. No doubt. Ric didn't have any pressure from Vettel who was cruising to stay ahead of Ham.

Voted Ric, Hul, Ocon.

On the second thought Verstappen was very good, but with obviously the best car to deal with slower ones, like in some video game with low settings. Besides Verstappen, honorable mention to Gasly.

How many cars did Verstappen actually overtake? 5? Two of those were at the first corner and the rest were the slowest cars on the grid. The other places were made up by strategy.

Ricciardo lost 160hp, lost his lead over Vettel, had to deal with a car that had lost a fundamental element of its braking process, had to constantly change settings on his steering wheel to respond to the issues, had to adapt his driving style to cope with those changes and had to drive a 60 laps flawlessly to keep Vettel from getting too close. It's not like Sebastian was always a few seconds back, there were times (especially as Lewis was closing) that Vettel got within 0.400s of Ricciardo. Yet, despite the setbacks of his car - and the undoubted disappointment and nerves that come with that - he kept it steady, not even doing so much as locking a brake and took the deserved win. He also kept his tyres up to temperature under the VSC at time that Vettel couldn't.

To say Ricciardo "didn't have any pressure" is a joke and shows how little you appreciate the challenges of the series.

You could argue that Max threw away an easy 18 or 25 points...

Threw away a near certain 1-2 result for Red Bull at Monaco. I reckon the team management would have been furious after Practice 3.

I suppose that is one interpretation. Here are some others:

https://www.foxsports.com.au/motorsport ... f314dc1955

Quote:
But his description of Ricciardo’s race illustrates the esteem in which Marko holds the Australian.

“It was a serious problem and he managed,” Marko told Sky.

“It was unbelievable. I don’t think any other driver could have done it.




Quote:
“He’s lost about 25 per cent of the power of the engine, and then because of the way these engines work, his rear brake temperatures are going through the roof,” he said.

“We saw it with Lewis Hamitlon and Nico Rosberg a few years back in Montreal.

“So he’s having to cool the brakes, he’s having to cool the car, he’s having to lift off to do that, he’s got Sebastian Vettel breathing down his neck, he cannot make a mistake, he cannot lock a wheel up.

“He’s dealing with all the switch changes, all the stuff he’s got to manage, and he totally nailed it.

“He was the coolest guy out there today — he was pulling away from Lewis Hamilton with no MGU-K!”

It was Ricciardo’s coolness under fire that impressed his team boss the most.

“He’s really the complete article now,” Horner said.



It certainly look simple, but the team seems to think it was a driving masterclass.

Ocon's 6th place looks even more remarkable considering the last 2 laps he had brake by wire issue. He coming 6th (best of the rest) was the least expected. In PF1 Top 10 competition even, I had pinned hopes on Renault or McLaren for scoring points. Even if a Force India car were to make it, I thought Checo would win that battle. Toro Rosso are also strong when compared to Force India as they have a better chassis which showed their results in all the 3 practice sessions. Force India were struggling & were firmly in the bottom half.

In fairness, of course they would.

Dan was faultless and showed a cool head. Even when he reported the fault you could hear that he was disappointed, but calm. I think the lower speeds probably helped with the tyre degradation and he was lucky enough that this happened at this circuit of all places. But a masterful drive it was and kudos to him. DOTD for me as well
