  1. Hamilton was skillful so he gets my vote. Starting 10th and finishing fourth was good. I’m sure he would have finished third with more fuel. Vettel lost because of a team mistake. It shows the oly way to beat him is with random situations… Alonso took his place, just like that. He made a big breach only because Vettel didn’t need to push for victory. A second (even third) place was OK. So Webber tried to overtake him and made a reat final battle. But his losing places at the start is terrible and it’s not first time Web loses ground. Well, to sum up Hamilton was the best average.

  2. im surprised very few f1fanatics voted sergio perez. i think he did great, had difficult times, was tidy on the wet part of the circuit, again managed his tyres very well. i was very impressed.
    i know both fernando and lewis were great too. but sergio perez definitely deserved more than 20 votes
    anybody agree??

  3. Alonso gets my vote

  4. I´ll give it to daniel.

  5. Webbo for me. Hammy a close second due to brilliant strategy by Mclaren (I believe they underfilled his petrol tank to give him the edge to make some overtakes at the start – played out brilliantly)

    Regarding Ferrari’s pace: They did bring a raft of updates to this GP, so we can assume the pace is at least somewhat real. However, is some portion also due to the single-race hot blown off-throttle diffuser ban at Silverstone? The cars will be reverting to Valencia-spec in Germany, so can it be that Ferrari might take a half-step back? That is, if we want to think that part of the Ferrari pace was helped by the regulation change?

      Not sure if you’re being sarcastic or not?

      Many saw it has a strategy blunder. But you have to ask yourself: Would he have made so much progress with the same level of fuel that Button had? Bearing in mind that Button was probably going to be right up there with him at the end of the race. You can’t have it both ways.
