1. Max. Ok he had a clear track but so did Charles. A masterclass.
2. Alpine. Good result for both and a good call on strategy for Alonso.

1) Nicholas Latifi: When he's normally glued to the back, managing to get a couple of points on merit is worthy of an IIDOTR.

2) Esteban Ocon: Valiantly holding off one of the most lauded wet weather drivers right to the end.

Nicholas Latifi: Finally a great result in an otherwise horrible season. Impressive statistic that all three Williams drivers have a best finish of 9th!

Nicholas Latifi for finally breaking his 2022 points duck. Took him long enough! Funny how it's only happened now when his F1 career is all but over!

Clear Winner: Nicolas Latifi

When you think about it Latifi has been strong in the wet all season peaking with topping FP3 at Hungary. But it’s one thing to do a one off lap and quite another to do it in race trim and an early pit stop meant he did. All 20 full timers have now scored.

1. Nicholas Latifi
He made a good call with inters and that worked.

2. Esteban Ocon
Beat Hamilton on qualifying and was able to hold him behind for entire race.

The votes are open! Again, only two candidates to choose from here, so it should be easier for you all to make your minds up! Get voting, as you only have 48 hours before the polls close. The poll itself is at the top of this thread :dance:
