We had a number of very strong performances in the field today, so it’s a tough call for driver of the day. Who’s yours?
Fernando Alonso – Took pole with a strong lap, defended robustly at the start from Vettel and pulled away at 3/10ths per lap in the opening stint. Drove a perfect race, despite intense pressure from Vettel in second phase when the Red Bull was clearly faster on the hard tyres. Has now scored three wins in five races.
Sebastian Vettel – His first podium for three races, the so called “crash kid” put in a faultless drive on Sunday, pressuring Alonso all the way. But he will be kicking himself for a tiny mistake in qualifying which handed the pole to Alonso.
Mark Webber – by his own admission Singapore is not a Webber circuit, despite his dominance of similar tracks Hungary and Monaco. Never really got into the groove of the front two, but responded well when the team gave him a challenge to try to jump the McLarens by switching strategy. Pulled it off to finish 3rd despite sever vibration following collision with Hamilton
Nico Rosberg – Another fantastic drive from Rosberg in the not terribly competitive Mercedes. Fifth place was the absolute maximum he could have achieved and he was miles faster than Schumacher all weekend. He’s now 76 points clear of his illustrious team mate
Robert Kubica – The Pole had the misfortune of a suspected puncture in the second half of the race, forcing a pit stop on lap 45 which dropped him from 6th to 13th. In the remaining 16 laps he fought back to finish 7th.
