    In hugely testing conditions at Imola, the McLaren star held his nerve to show maturity well beyond his years and beat both Ferraris to the podium. No wonder you gave Lando Norris the nod. Here’s how the voting broke down…

    Lando Norris - 32.3%
    Max Verstappen - 15.5%
    Lewis Hamilton - 13.9%
    Charles Leclerc - 7.2%
    Carlos Sainz - 4.9%

    'Never give up' has to be a motto of any F1 driver, but Sergio Perez truly embodied it in Bahrain. Forced to start from the pit lane after a technical glitch on his formation lap, the Mexican battled his way back to P5 on his Red Bull debut - and you duly recognised his feat. Here’s how the voting broke down…

    Sergio Perez - 27.7%
    Max Verstappen - 16.8%
    Lando Norris - 13%
    Lewis Hamilton - 7.5%
    Yuki Tsunoda - 7%
