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 Brazilian Grand Prix weekend:

Mark Webber – There’ve been plenty of occasions this year where he wouldn’t have been close enough to Vettel to inherit a win, but he was on better form in Brazil.

Sebastian Vettel – Still finished a solid second despite having to nurse his car home.

Fernando Alonso – Hounded Button early in the race and passed the McLaren, but had to surrender the position later on.

Adrian Sutil – Ended his season in style with an excellent sixth place, passing Rosberg on the way.

Kamui Kobayashi – Didn’t qualify well but took a vital ninth place under pressure to keep Sauber ahead of Toro Rosso in the constructors’ championship.

  1. I like to see sutil and hulkenberg driving for force india Paul……. naaaaa re

  2. Vettel could practically retire DOTW for this year and certainly would be deserving this weekend. Sutil, with the pressure he’s been under, stepped up his game in qualifying and the race and appears destined to win the honors this time. He certainly be worthy holder of DOTW.

    I decided to vote for another driver that I thought came through with a real strong performance this weekend when he really needed to: Bruno Senna. Out qualified his teammate and got that Renault into Q3 (no easy task). In the race he was running strong until the coming together with MSC and the penalty seemed a bit harsh. Without the drive thru and the gearbox problems he subsequently had, I think he was on pace for a points finish which would have been a great way to end the year for him.

  3. Went for VET. Great lap and had to nurse the car to the chequered flag. Also good job by WEB, the difference in Q3 said he was doing lot better, but still couldn’t beat VET.
    Contrary to last race when HAM was gifted the win and went on to get DOTW, this week the trend seems to have lost track. Poor WEB.

    1. Tried to say plus one but WordPress wouldnt let me. Anyway, plus one on that comment.

  4. Tempted to vote for Massa for his brave, unnerving defence. Not sure how much it contributed to the gearbox breakdown but probably it did. Totally exhilarating to watch the DNF, the season ends in a high note for me.

  5. Sutil for me with Vettel and Alonso 2nd and 3rd.

    Sutil’s 6th place was the most impressive race of this week and his qualifying was just as impressive as Vettel.

    I’d like to give an honourable mention to Schumacher too. His pace was superb.
    I know he was out of sync but he was capable of the same pace as Alonso and the McLarens. He had to let them through at first because he was a lap down but then was perfectly capable to follow them around the track.
    I’m sure that, if he not had that puncture, he could have challenged Massa for 5th.

  6. Adrian Sutil gets my vote. He was on top form this weekend and deserved that 6th place. Hope he gets that Williams seat if Force India are not retaining him. Honourable mention to Kamui Kobayashi, delivered when it mattered the most.

  7. Can’t vote for Webber or Vettel, Webber was gifted a win and Vettel’s car didn’t work..

    Alonso very nearly got it for that superb pass on Button, but since it didn’t hold till the end of the race, it’s sort of nullified..

    Sutil gets it for me, none of this ‘His last race’ nonsense, he WILL be in F1 next year, I’m sure of it..

    1. @keeleyobsessed You can still vote for Webber or Vettel. It’s more about making the most of the situation you’re presented with in my opinion.

  8. Voted for Hamilton … LOL
    Anyway the last race didn’t impress me so much. Brazil hsa had much better GPs

    I think Button deserves the DOTW

  9. I voted for Button. I was going to vote for Sutil before I thought about it.

    Out qualified Hamilton, on pace.
    Did well with a car that had a compromised set-up for the soft tyres, (destroying them).
    Was very quick on the hard tyres.
    Forced Alonso to go defensive in turns one and two therefore allowing the run and for DRS to work for him.
    Closing down Vettel but ran out of laps.
    Sowed up 2nd in the drivers championship
    Was best of the non RBRs which were untouchable again this weekend.

    I voted for Di Resta when he was 6th and nearly voted for Sutil this but thought Button sneaked it.

    1st Button
    2nd Sutil
    3rd Alonso
    for me.

  10. Another vote for Button here. The car was rubbish on the softs – but when the harder tyres went on he drove the nuts off the car!
    Sutil was good and his overtake on Rosberg impressive – so he gets my 2nd place DOTW…..

  11. I voted for Sutil. All the rumours seemed to be saying that Force India will drop him for next year but he showed them what he can do.

  12. Suitil for me, under pressure for a drive but he delivered! No other driver stood out for me, too many already on their holidays…

      wow didn’t realize sutil would be leading this one! Nice

  14. Sutil for me. Soild over-take on Rosberg and a strong finish. Especially given the uncertainty over his future in the team.
