This season, IndyCar winner James Hinchcliffe has been taking stock after every Grand Prix and presenting his ‘heroes’ from the weekend, exclusively for F1.com. And as the season pauses for the new traditional summer break, we asked him to pick out the five drivers he’s been most impressed with in the first half of 2023…

Yuki Tsunoda

When you really look at everything that Tsunoda has done this year, it really is impressive. Coming out of the gates strong with two 11th and two 10th place finishes in the first four races gave everyone the opinion that the AlphaTauri was a reasonably strong package.
