Which driver did the best job during the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix weekend?
See below for my pick of the best drivers in the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix.
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 Abu Dhabi Grand Prix weekend:
Sebastian Vettel – While his team mate looked vulnerable in the other RB6, Vettel stuck it on pole and drove off to win as if it was any ordinary race weekend.
Lewis Hamilton – Back at his best after a breakthrough with the MP4-25 – albeit one that came too late for his championship hopes.
Nico Rosberg – Ran a 54-lap stint on the medium tyres to capture fourth place.
Robert Kubica – Never looked happy at the wheel of the car and was beaten by his team mate in qualifying. But he pulled off two excellent passes on race day and, more impressively, withstood pressure from Hamilton without losing too much time to the cars behind him.
Vitaly Petrov – I didn’t expect him to hold Alonso up for four laps, never mind the best part of 40. Having out-qualified his team mate on Saturday, this was surely his best weekend of the year. But I would advise him against holidaying in Italy for the foreseeable future.
