Review each driver’s race weekend in detail below and vote for who you thought was the most impressive driver.

For your consideration

Here are some of the drivers who impressed me during the Belgian Grand Prix weekend:

Lewis Hamilton – Always seemed to get a bit more out of the car in the wet conditions than anyone else.

Mark Webber – Stayed cool after a poor start, put a handy pass on Massa and kept the pressure on Kubica.

Robert Kubica – Revelled in the updated Renault and was unlucky to miss out on a front row start.

Adrian Sutil – Passes on Kobayashi, Schumacher and Rosberg set him up for a season-best-equalling fifth.

Nico Rosberg – Used his wet set-up to great effect to pass Schumacher and Kobayashi at the final restart.

    Schumacher. In a a totally uncompetitive car he gained the most places – started 21st, finished 7th.

    I was impressed by Micheal. First time we saw him do some real racing this year. Felt good.

    Lewis would have had my vote, but he was pretty much given first place at the start by webber, and then he cruised to the finish, controlling the pace. Not very impressive considering all he had to do was go round and round while everyone else was tripping overeachother behind him. I’m not taking anything away from him… he drove well. But we have seen many times how its easier to lead than to follow in this series, especially in the rain, where mechanical grip is lacking.

    Why are some so reluctant to recognise Hammy’s brilliance….Think about this, where it not for Barcelona(car letting him down), Hungary( was creeping closer to the Ferrari ahead), He probably would have a much bigger lead than now.

    Lewis by far, brilliant drive as always. Fastest and most opportunistic driver on the grid, and just think, hasnt reached his peak yet.

      Don’t get me wrong, I am a Hamilton fan. But had Webber had the luck not to be paired with Vettel, he would nearly have a race in hand in his lead for the championship. So really, this kind of reasonning isn’t flattering for Lewis.

    Has to be Webber. Had the worst start in the race and was able to finish 2nd while others spun, crashed and went off he didn’t make a single driver mistake.

    I’m the last person to lavish praise on Hamilton, but I just find it strange that so many feel the need to downplay the efforts of the man who actually WON the race.

    Race stewards seem to have forgotten that Massa was a bit ahead of his grid box at the start. Must not Massa be punished for that?

  7. Cornflakes said on 31st August 2010, 3:06

    I put Kubica simply because of his ability to ‘do a Hamilton from 09′ and get the most out of the package. He’s overdoing his expectations, whilst a McLaren win is meeting expectations. Kubica is my driver of the weekend, but Hamilton thoroughly deserves the credit too.

    Lewis Hamilton deserve it but I voted Webber in comparison to Vettel he kept his head cool even after having a very bad start.

    sutil passing kobayashi, rosberg, michel schumacar
    on consecutive laps was the best
    otherwise he would have finished eighth as Mercedes drivers did not pit until rain

    Lewis. For the simple reason that he had to win, and in bad conditions. I think when the dust has settled, Mark Webber will probably be satisfied with his second place. Vettel’s disastrous race, along with the demise of Jenson Button and Fernando Alonso, has put some daylight between Hamilton and Webber. Also now Red Bull must be looking at Webber has ‘their’ man for the championship following the recent string of poor performances from his highly rated team mate. Vettel, in my opinion, has to have another race in Monza like he did for Toro Rosso back in 2008, or he’ll only make Christian Horner’s decision that little bit easier when the time comes.

    Well Hamilton (running off at Rivage), Webber (the start, which wasn’t really his fault) and Kubica (missong his pit box) all made mistakes, but on the whole it had to be Hamilton’s day. It was a super drive in difficult conditions, and he kept his head and showed a blistering turn of pace at times.

  12. Gill said on 31st August 2010, 5:50

    For me, its Adrian Sutil. Very good qualifying, good start (didnt lose a place, he generally tends to), very good passes at the crucial time. He was once threatening Massa too. He should be on a better team may be Renault or Mercedes

  13. Sutil by all means. The vote is very British > Hamilton who I adore, but almost went out & got lucky !

  14. Marco said on 31st August 2010, 6:35

    Sutil and Alguersuari… Both destroyed their teammates in terms of pace in Spa…

  15. Rahzam said on 31st August 2010, 6:38

    Any option for worst driver of race. I want to choose Vettel :)
