Webber, he really did a great job
Not an easy choice, as some drivers had good weekends at Silverstone, (Rosberg, Webber Alonso, Vettel come to mind).
But on Saturday it was Hamilton who grabbed pole at a track where it’s worth something. Then come Sunday he blew a tire early while leading the race. He rolled out of the pits on replacement rubber in last position with a damaged car. But he was able to drag that car back up to 4th at the checkers… A top-tier performance on his home GP weekend, well done!
Never thought I’d say this but for me it was Hamilton. Struggling on Friday, great pole lap on Saturday and was it not for the tyre blowout he could have won.
Though, even he went from first to last he still did a great job to finish 4th.
Alonso – I don’t like his personality, but he is a superb driver, once again dragging a not so fast car to a good result in the race making some great moves to get there.
I voted for Hamilton but Webber and Alonso were easily deserving of it as well.
All 3 had great recovery drives in their respective races, Webber after a really bad start, Alonso after a bad qualifying, Hamilton after a tyre blowout while leading.
Tough to call this one, but Hamilton’s blinding pace on Saturday and fight back in the race makes him the top man for me over the whole of the weekend (very closeley followed by Webber and Alonso’s storming race drives)
