GPblog Driver of the Day: Who do you think stood out in Brazil?

On the Formula 1's official poll, fans have already had their say on who was Driver of the Day at the Brazilian Grand Prix: but who do you think put in the best performance at Interlagos?

Normally, there are one or two obvious choices, but this is quite a unique situation; there are at least five drivers who put in blinding performances at the penultimate race of the season.

Max Verstappen had an incredible race, starting and finishing in first place. His overtake on Lewis Hamilton for the lead was nothing short of sensational, going down the outside of the six-time champion at turn 1.

He was also simply the quickest driver on the day as he won his eighth win in F1.

Then, there are the two drivers who scored their maiden podiums; Pierre Gasly and Carlos Sainz. Gasly has all the narrative in the world: getting dropped by Red Bull and then scoring a P2 for Toro Rosso, it's a fairytale story. As for Sainz, he started in last place and made up 17 places to score McLaren's first podium since Australia 2014!

Alex Albon, who was on to score his maiden podium until he got taken out by Hamilton in the penultimate lap, had a great race too, as did both Alfa Romeo drivers, who finished fourth and fifth.

Now, it's time for you to have your say: who was your GPblog Driver of the Day?
