Launched back in 2016, Driver of the Day is an official F1 award, which creates much debate.

Remember, this is not about who wins the race or who has the fastest car. It’s the driver who has performed the best given the challenges he has faced on any given Sunday.

Who won F1 Driver of the Day at the Chinese GP?

Lando Norris was voted Driver of the Day in China with 26.4% of the vote. Starting from fourth, the McLaren star displayed an impressive performance that propelled him to a well-deserved second-place finish.

Lewis Hamilton clawed his way from a lowly 18th place start all the way to ninth, earning him 13.9% of the vote for second place.

Fernando Alonso wasn't far behind in third with 13.6% of the vote after the Spaniard salvaged a seventh-place finish.

Rounding out the top five were Charles Leclerc, who brought his Ferrari home in fourth with 9% of the vote, and race winner Max Verstappen, who garnered 6.3%.
