Formula One Spanish Grand Prix | Driver Of The Day: Vote Now

Voting is open for the RaceDepartment Formula One 'Driver of the Day' from the Spanish Grand Prix.

Barcelona 2020 certainly won't be going down in the record books as a classic Grand Prix, far from it. That said, with the 20 Formula One drivers lining up on the grid and giving it their all for 60+ laps at the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya today, who do our RaceDepatment community think was the best performing of the bunch?

Did Lewis Hamilton catch the eye out front in the dominant Mercedes, how about one of the Racing Point pair in last years Silver Arrow, or does someone further down the finishing order deserve credit for their performance today? Let us know your thoughts in the poll and comments section below!

yea even Stroll can get good if he stays long enough in F1. For me i have more respect to drivers who not just stay in one racing series but tries a bunch.

Gonna be an unpopular one I already know it but for me Stroll was great today right up until his strategy got a big messed up near the end, his start was amazing
I picked Stroll too. Very solid drive, no mistakes, almost on the podium and consistently ahead of his teammate.

But what a snoozefest that was. All drivers a lap behind Hamilton except Bottas and Verstappen... zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz… Thank God we have the Indy 500 next week and Spa in two weeks.

Hear, hear for Stroll. Mega start and did did it cleanly but aggresively. No one was "on fire" today though because they had to...gasp, save the tires but props to Seb for a strong run.

Stroll for the start (nice big cojones there) but after that noone else. Race was such a snoozer I didnt even notice anything out of the ordinary, performance wise. Hopefully someone pulls the plug on that (test) track.
Yes, the F2 race wasn’t that great either. Races at Barcelona are usually boring.

(Quote/OP) Struggling to find any interesting points in this race. Not voting for anyone, noone really did a whole lot out there other than point the wheels the right way.

I was boring and gave it to Hamilton. Yeah, fastest guy in fastest car wins race, what a surprise...but I really anticipated Merc struggling in these temps (as did a lot of other people, maybe even Merc themselves), so I have a feeling Lewis had to do quite a bit of nifty tire management to dominate like he did.

I think is a very neat track and a beautiful country, but it really doesn't suit these cars in terms of allowing good race action. Hopefully the new aero rules will let this track (and others) come alive.

I voted for Lewis because he did what you should do when you are the best. Crush everyone else. But I am really for Nicolas and Alex. I can't imagine going to every race knowing everyone either thinks you shouldn't be in F1 or thinks you shouldn't be in F1.

I voted for Vettel because he drove like a lion with a Formula2 car, incredible pit strategy, tire change with Leclerc on the same lap with different tires and then 40 laps with the red ones (25 laps with medium). At Ferrari, either they are idiots or they do it on purpose and I say it as an Italian

...You know what ? I voted Stroll, for "encouragements" (not that he did perfectly, but that was pretty good for this low'rated driver)
I should have voted verstappen, or perez, or sainz, or gasly...maybe vettel.....lots of guys did pretty well in this (boring) race :)
