Sirotken & Perez for me.

At least they did something to make this bore fest worth hanging around for.

A pretty unremarkable race. I highly doubt that the McLaren is truly the best of the rest at the moment so I'll pick Alonso for showing the pace when it mattered to make his way up to 7th place.

Hamilton, Verstappen and Sirotkin.

Perez is lucky to be in the next race after today, idiot of the day for sure.

Checo in the 1st stint (when behind Ricciardo) was lapping the fastest after the top 6. Seems the upgrades were really working but they didn't last to show their magic this race.

Hamilton and Alonso were the only two I felt were really outstanding on race day. Max would make the pretty easy third choice after them, although his really impressive effort was on Saturday - on Sunday he didn't seem to have an answer for Lewis.

Checo single handedly destroyed FI chances of a good result. If he didn't see Ocon with a wheel ahead of him he needs to be removed from F1 for needing a seeing eye dog.

Then he wouldn't get close enough to Sirotkin to make the blue flag rule operative and blamed it on Sirotkin and then later on drove into Sirotkin on purpose.

Checo's lack of control should have him on the outside of F1 looking in.

The rest I more or less agree with, but this is a mix-up of events. Bottas was the one who couldn't get close enough to a driver in front (Hulk) to make the rule operative. Checo was complaining about Sirotkin allegedly weaving and blocking him while fighting for position, nothing to do with blue flags.

4 votes for Vettel? I know he did well to make the tyres last but DotD?

He had an excellent start and got past Verstappen. Did about all he could to attempt getting past him again when he came out of the pits. Ferrari did the wrong strategy with him. If they did the same strategy as Verstappen, he will have likely stuck right behind him. I wouldn't be against several votes for Vettel.

One thing I don't understand is the votes for Serotkin. I bet it is just because he was on the screen for about 20 - 25% of the race. He may have been unlucky at the start, but there isn't really anything he did that was better than Stroll. That pit stop he had at first was a free one. and he could catch up again. From then on, both him and Stroll just had 1 more if I'm correct. Stroll finished 15th, Serotkin had a messy moment with hartley and finished last. And only about a minute and 50 seconds behind stroll??!! Were the graphics going crazy or something. I think he could well have had a problem after he pitted as he lost about 30 seconds at this stage. But still, he didn't do that much that was impressive. He kept perez behind on a track that is really hard to overtake.

His strategy was not ideal. Probably about the worst out there. But He still didn't look as good as Stroll who seems to have been forgotten about probably because he was never on screen.

.


Just to clarify, Perez and Sirotkin were racing for position so no need for any blue flags.

The race is more than a start, though. He lost a place while pitting as he wasn't going fast enough and the remainder of the race he did nothing noteworthy and just conserved his tyres. I'm struggling to think what he did that was noticeably better than anyone else

I don't know if I'd give Sirotkin driver of the day, but I can see why people sympathize with him. He showed great fighting spirit and great defending and countering. Plus he's been the victim of misfortune and some boneheaded driving by Perez so I don't think his gap to Stroll is relevant at the end. In fact he was the main reason why Stroll was able to beat Perez and Grosjean to the finish line.

That's not such a daft choice as it may seem at first sight. The race was run at night...
