Malaysian Grand Prix - Who was the Driver of the Day?
Apr 10, 2011, 2:19 PM

It was an all action race today in Malaysia with some great performances from a number of drivers.

It was an all action race today in Malaysia with some great performances from a number of drivers. So who was your Driver of the Day?

Sebastian Vettel

Took pole under pressure from Hamilton, also held the lead at the start under pressure from him. After that he managed the race brilliantly coping with no KERS, maintaining his tyres and his engine. Has led 109 of the 114 laps in 2011

Jenson Button

Started fourth on the grid and held it at the start. Battled with Alonso and Hamilton in the race and got ahead of both through pit strategy. Was faster on the hard tyre at the end. Did a great job to make the most of the tyres and the tactics -and his rivals' problems - to take second place today.

Nick Heidfeld

Qualified sixth and had a sensational start, moving up to second place, which was the platform for his podium finish today. Managed his race very well with a three stop strategy and used the solid performance of the Renault in race conditions, which is stronger than in qualifying.

Kamui Kobayashi

Started 10th, finished seventh. Another stellar and thoroughly entertaining performance from the fans' favourite. Some tremedous overtaking. But he showed his versatility too by using the Sauber's gentle action on the tyres to manage a two stop strategy - the only driver in the top ten to manage it.
