For your consideration

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

Lewis Hamilton – Got far more out of the car than his team mate, qualified very strongly and was tenacious in attack in the race.

Fernando Alonso – Minor mistakes take little away from another top-notch drive.

Mark Webber – Slow second pit stop cost him but he was quicker than Vettel all weekend.

Adrian Sutil – Very strong in qualifying and beat the Mercedes in the race. Easily his best drive so far this year.

Kamui Kobayashi – Solid comeback drive into the points having missed the cut for Q2 in qualifying.

    Lewis definitely. There are honourable mentions to both Webber & Alonso, but Lewis has to get the vote. Fantastic all weekend, didn’t put a foot wrong. He has seemed a bit ragged lately, so great to see him back on form.

    Hamilton’s already gonna win… so i voted Sutil as i Recognise his great performance this weekend, his third best performance behind Malaysia 2010 and Monza 2009!

    Anyone else think that Massa is now being used as a pawn by Ferrari to cover any move Vettel makes?

    As it turned out I don’t think Vettel had the pace to challenge Alonso but the goal was to keep him as far down the points as possible, the Pit Crew let Ferarri down of course.

    Oh right well if stefano said it!!

    Remember after the Hockenheim farce last year he told the BBC that there were no team orders in the race?

    It would be PR insanity to say otherwise..

      it was the way in which it was said. the bbc journo (jake h iirc) inferred ferrari only had 1 driver – nando. he was spontaneously corrected by stefano.

      it may be bs, however i think ferrari are now much more approachable and give more info than when under brawn or todt.

    Got to be Hamilton. I hate him, so, so much, but he had an awesome weekend. One fo teh greatest qualifying laps I have ever seen, followed by an impeccable race, holding off the might of Alonso. Brilliant driving, but please Lewis, don’t keep it up ;)

    Those praising Hamilton like the gifted love child of Senna, I agree he’s done a super job but in my view, Alonso gets it.

    Hamilton had the fastest race car, without a doubt. Webber was pushing 100% & couldn’t keep up & neither could Alonso. I think all the whining from McLaren & it’s fan have warped the reality that they have a solid race package.

    Qualifying is still (for the moment) Red Bull territory & Hamilton did indeed get the maximum out of his car but I think Alonso got more out of his car in the race, which, in my view, is much more important.

    This must be the biggest landslide driver of the weekend in a long time!

    Kamui the best
    Fernando a close second
    Would give a 24th to Lewis if he hadn’t bullied Vettel the way he did, so it’s much lower than that.

    First, Lewis – because I’m a fan, because he was superb, because he didn’t throw his toys out of the pram like he can.
    Second, Alonso. Respect! Even though I’m a Hamilton fan, you have to say that Alonso is astonishing, raced the socks off an improving car.
    Third, Vettel – partly broken car, stuck with it and did well in front of a home crowd all expecting more than he could deliver. A hard situation for him and he coped really well, I thought.
    Sutil impressed, as he often does.
    Webber squandered second place. Bad luck? Yet again?
    Rosberg quietly got on with it in a ropy car.
    Schumi did well from poor qualifying, obviously over-driving to keep up with his (better-looking and faster) young team-mate.
    Great weekend. More please!

    Hamilton hands down.
    Again a fighting victory as in China. Great drive.
    Shows why he is one of the top stars in f1!

    In other news, HRT is getting ready for another smashing weekend at the Hungaroring…

    Podium says it all!

  13. daykind said on 27th July 2011, 11:16

    Who has tried to be funny and has voted for Vettel? ;)

  14. Giverny (@giverny) said on 27th July 2011, 18:55

    Lewis was awesome at the Nurgburgring. From lights out, he took control of the race as he let his driving do the talking in one of the most exciting races of the season so far. He was calm, confident and analytical in his approach to the race, silencing his critics and emerging victorious to prove yet again what a great F1 champion racer he is.

  15. AndrewTanner (@andrewtanner) said on 27th July 2011, 22:55

    A few good weekends all round.

    Hamilton has this by a huge landslide, never seen it favour one driver so much, wow! A superb drive and a fantastic start.

    Honourable mentions to Kobayashi and Sutil.
