Charles LECLERC got my vote. He said after Austria that he would look at changing his driving style to become more aggressive, but clean. He showed that today by driving a mature and measured race. Great things are in store for this young man as a F1 racing driver.

I will go with Bottas who had the race win in hand until Gio went off.

Bot did everything right, pole, good start, even passing Hamilton for the lead and ironically for the right to the first pitstop. Bad luck.

And was that safety car really required it was awfully convenient for a full safety car to be called giving Hamilton the lead and win. A virtual safety car is designed for that type of car removal incident isn't it? Anyway the home crowd got what it wanted to see so it was the right call I guess.

Fastest lap on the 30 + lap hard compound taking extra point from a team mate with soft compound. :eek: . It was Hamilton's race to lose the minute he was able to match Bottas time after he pit and went on medium for a two stop.

Pretty sad when Merc gives Hamilton permission and the engine map to take away his teammates extra point on the last lap. Bottas has no hope at this team.

Hamilton wasn't deserving of the win over his teammate having been beaten to pole and being passed for the lead in the race. If the team gives Bottas the slower strategy that is just dirty internal politics on the teams part and isn't a positive for Hamilton in any way. As it turned out no matter what strategy Bottas was on it was the safety car that gifted Hamilton the win.

It was between Leclerc and Verstappen for DOTR, and I went for Verstappen as he would have finished on the podium if it were not for Vettel.
