The 2020 Austrian Grand Prix saw strong drives throughout the field, but who do you think was most deserving of the driver of the day award? 

Alexander Albon won the fan vote on race day for his drive, which ultimately ended in retirement following a power unit problem.

Valtteri Bottas held off the teammate Lewis Hamilton throughout the 71 laps, while Lando Norris managed to secure his first career podium. But what do you think?

Scroll down below to vote in our poll.

Special shout out to Albon for a great drive. Russell has no business driving that Williams.

  • 'S gotta be Norris or Leclerc, innit? Both drivers pushed their cars beyond their limits by far, and managed to do so without overdriving. Both McLarens seemingly qualied over their race pace, but both drivers did well given those circumstances, and Leclerc did a fine job salvaging what he could from an abysmal car.

    I voted for Perez. Unlucko for him but he deserves.

    • The strategy let Perez down. He didn't look great outbreaking himself and allowing Albon through, but that was inevitable with the strategy they chose

    So many made it well but for sure Valtteri was always at the top there, I saw no mistakes from him.
    I'm not his fan, I just cannot stand his cold Finnish winning reactions "Yes !! Boys" (always the same like a robot) but for sure this weekend he made it look he was number 1.

      But he was only racing himself and didn’t have to contend with back markers being lapped or even his team mate who was playing wing man. Although there were a lot of retirements, even Williams only finished half a lap down.

      But he stayed cold when Lewis was pushing him hard for couple laps

    • Have to agree it was Bottas. Outstanding drive from start to Finnish with Hammy breathing down his neck, riding his gearbox for most of the race.
