For your consideration
Here are some of the drivers who impressed me during the Italian Grand Prix weekend:
Sebastian Vettel – Spectacular to watch in qualifying and equally so in the race with a brilliant pass on Fernando Alonso.
Jenson Button – Made two great, opportunistic moves to pass Lewis Hamilton and Michael Schumacher in a single lap, before hunting down and passing Fernando Alonso for second.
Fernando Alonso – An excellent start set him on course for a podium finish, which was the very best the car could achieve.
Michael Schumacher – Another driver who made a great start, he fought hard with Hamilton and finished a strong fifth.
Jaime Alguersuari – Like Button, managed to pass two cars in one lap, while hauling his way up from 18th to a career-best seventh.
