Lewis Hamilton voted Driver of the Day!

Sunday, 12 november 2017, 13:32

Formula 1 fans have voted for Lewis Hamilton as their performer of the day following the Englishman’s stunning recovery from 20th to 4th over the course of the Brazil Grand Prix this afternoon.

The Mercedes driver started in the pit in the GP due to an early crash in qualifying yesterday, and even though he has already claimed the Formula 1 Championship, it was evident from the get-go it was his intention to blitz his way through the pack.

Hamilton quickly made his way into the middle of the field and it was here where he put the foot on the gas and eventually went beyond Max Verstappen, with his Mercedes visibly outperforming the Red Bull vehicle of the young Dutchman. Eventually finishing fourth, fans have deemed this recovery as worthy of their Driver of the Day vote.

    I really don't get the hate towards Hamilton, he is definitely one of best f1 drivers out there and he's worked his butt off since he was a kid to get there. Mist drivers get into it coz of their rich families, not because of talent or determination. Hat's off to Lewis, he's an f1 legend and doing it for the brits!
  • Susan Street
    Liked him as a young man, but not so hot on him now. Lost any humbleness he had from all the hard work his father and he put into getting there. We'll see how the other young guns handle fame, but Ham doesn't hold a candle to Schumi. Just mho.
  • Brett Summers
    No. The only reason he can over take so easily is he has the quickest car in the field. Give him a toro Rosso or mclaren and see how well he does from the back.
  • Benji Austin
    Max does it- driver of the day. Vettel does it- driver of the day. Hamilton does it- driver of the day but with constant hate from so called f1 fans.
  • Dave Ladd
    I'm not one of his fans but he's probably one of the best to ever race at this level and I was actually rooting for him to get a podium..:)
  • Martin Hossell
    He deserved to be driver of the day because he came all the way from the back to 4th. He was the only interesting watching point of the race really
  • Michael Haskey
    Bottas is certainly not driver of the day. A very poor performance from him even though he got 2nd. Mercedes no.2 driver.
  • Peter David Horney
    The car was the winner as any driver driving that car would have done the same . Fia should take a close look at the engine

    All the Hamilton haters remind me of when Schumacher was dominating the sport. You either loved or hated him

    Its was a great effort. Almost as good as the time Vettel was spun and came from last to the podium
