Who was the most impressive driver throughout the Turkish Grand Prix weekend?

See below for my pick of the best drivers in the Turkish 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 Turkish Grand Prix weekend:

Sebastian Vettel – The smash in practice didn’t come close to putting him off his stride. Another emphatic pole position and win.

Fernando Alonso – Finally able to capitalise on the strong race pace of the Ferrari.

Nico Rosberg – Powerless to defend in the opening laps, he fought back later on. Qualifying and finished far ahead of his team mate.

Sebastien Buemi – Not the first time he’s clearly out-performed Jaime Alguersuari this year.

Kamui Kobayashi – An impressive trek through the field from the back row of the grid. Could well have been higher than tenth without his puncture.
