Formula One Tuscan Grand Prix | Driver of the Day: Vote Now

Voting is now open for the RaceDepartment Tuscan Grand Prix 'Driver of the Day'...

What a crazy couple of weekends we have been treated to by Italy's finest circuits!

This weekend's Tuscan Grand Prix hosted at Mugello featured three grid starts! The two red flags and many safety car periods kept drivers on their toes from start to finish. Hopefully you were able to follow and enjoy Ferrari's 1000th Grand Prix, with all that's left to do being to cast your vote for the RaceDepartment Formula One Driver of the Day.

There are some good candidates, not least the driver who achieved their first ever podium finish in Formula One. Perhaps you would give it to the man who gave him a run for his money all the way to line? Or do you you have someone else in mind who managed today's chaos well but finished further down the order?

Let us know with your vote, and let's get talking below in the comments section.

lewis:seemed to struggle a little bit in this weekend,bad 1st start,then perfect in every important moment.

albon:at the end a good race,very good overtakes and the gap between him and max wasn't so much as usually(even if still a gap)

kimi:well,considering the car he drives,absolutely top class driving in this unbelievable and technical track.

i'd put in also leclerc,the qualify was outstanding then there's no much to do considering the fiat uno he's driving

Some good performances, and.... some not so good
That pile-up after safety car restrart? Wasn't great driving there :/

Good -
LH (fluffed the start, but made up for it)
AA (did well in the end)
DR (probably did the best possible with that car)
Also LS for a while (don't know what happened though), KR, DK.

Apart from Kimi being a Boss he drove a good race and beat a Ferrari and scored points with a 5 sec penalty.

Congrats to Albon , really happy for him but he has been underperforming compared to Max race and should always pick points if Max is not there anyway.....so 3rd is expected.

Lewis clearly played with Bottas keeping the gap no less than 1.3secs .

Just watched Sky's "everyone say something nice about Ferrari intro" :sick:

Sentimentality towards Ferrari is running high because they suck! :laugh: If they had aired that intro during Schumi's dominance, they would have been flooded with angry letters/emails! "Don't Ferrari get enough publicity as it is?!?" etc.

I almost voted for Kimi, for the "conversation" with his engineer! :D

But I voted Albon. Great drive and a first podium. Ricciardo almost got his first podium and Abiteboul almost had to get a tatoo. If it happens, who picks the spot for the tatoo? :roflmao:

Another PU failure for Max, this time right away. Max had a pretty good chance to win this time, too bad.

I did not see any amazing performances, race was overall ruined by 2 red flags and the fact that Mugello is pretty **** for F1. Riccardo performed well and Albon finally did what he should be doing since the start, so I hope we see more of that. Russel deserved his first points this race...

the anoying Merc race.........winner this time was Albon (finally) if you dont count the cars that are 2 sec around faster than the rest. Lewis in a Merc is a great racer but man they are boring.

This track is a lot of fun - the word "frenetic" comes to mind. Hopefully F1 considers a return visit. I feel like Italy could easily support 2 GPs every year.
