  1. Driver of the weekend has to be Alonso. 9th on the grid to a fine 2nd behind Vettel, who was untouchable once he was past Hamilton, was much more than Ferrari’s recent form promised.

    Honourary mention to Guido van der Garde. Qualifying the car where he did was a great achievement on its own, but unlike the Marussias, who dropped back right from the start, GvG put in a more than decent show. For someone having come to F1 mostly on merit of his dad’s wallet, he has more than earned his right to be in F1. I expected him to be back-of-the-grid cannon fodder, but he turns out to be quite a decent chauffeur.

    • I also follow the “lessor” drivers and teams quite closely. to me, on any given day, any of these guys could possibly qualify as DOTD. to focus entirely on the top 3, 6, or 10 is to deny myself of ALL the pleasure and story nuaunces which present themself…

  2. Alonso for me also. I was going to vote for Vettel as he did not put a foot wrong, but Alonso gets it for his masterly and assertive overtakes and dragging what appears to be a not very good car on to the podium once again.

  3. Dare I say Ricciardo. He may not have scored great points or have a great quali but with all the focus on his driving from Red Bull and all … he is doing a great job!

  4. I admire Alonso very much, and this weekend showed his value (again). If he had qualified better I’d likely have voted for him.

    But I voted for Vettel. He qualified front row, practiced well, started very well, and had the race pace to control the race. One can pass on track at Spa, and the durable tyres meant that track position was less valuable than race pace. His team-mate’s weekend performance helps the perspective as well.
