This weekend, two Formula One drivers won our “Driver of the Weekend” award. Lewis Hamilton and Mark Webber both put on master class performances in the Chinese Grand Prix this weekend, and deserve credit for their awesomeness. However, both earned this prize for different reasons.
Twice in two weekends has Vitaly become my driver of the weekend. This weekend, it wasn’t because how he finished a race. (Since he didn’t finish). It was because of his commitment, style and flavor doing this… (Video after the jump)
This weekend had a lot of epic races. However the driver of the weekend for me was Vitaly Petrov, taking his first ever (See: First Russian ever) Formula 1 podium for Lotus-Renault. Qualified well (P6), and raced great! (P3). Also, the guy has the “BEST” post-race interview face that I have ever seen. Only guy I know who literally looks exhausted listening to Sebastian Vettel’s chattering. (That earns way more points than his race-finish, in our books)
