For your consideration
Here are some of the drivers who impressed me during the Italian Grand Prix weekend:
Fernando Alonso – Great lap to clinch pole position in a tight session. Lost the lead at the start but kept the pressure on Button and took it back after a quick pit stop.
Jenson Button – Opting to run a set-up which left him 14kph slower than Alonso on the straights was a risky choice. But he came impressively close to pulling it off after a great start and unblinking performance under pressure.
Sebastian Vettel – His race looked to be over on lap 19 but nursing his soft tyres for 51 laps allowed him to vault back into fourth place.
Mark Webber – Out-qualified Vettel despite losing time in two practice sessions with car problems. Lost ground at the start but made passes on Michael Schumacher, Robert Kubica and Nico Hülkenberg to take sixth.
Nico Hülkenberg – Looked faster than Rubens Barrichello all weekend. Out-qualified his team mate and beat him home. Only blot was a few mistakes at the chicanes precipitated by a dodgy brake pedal – Webber might have thought he deserved a penalty but race control didn’t agree.
