Formula1.com gave Romain Grosjean the Driver of the Day award after votes by fans launched him to the top. A very worthy recipient by anyone’s measure although I gave the Drive of the Day on our Podcast to Nico Rosberg.
I am glad Romain and Haas F1 got their first points (6th place) in their first race and their first Driver of the Day award. That is a real achievement for sure.
As we discussed on the Race Review Podcast, it will be interesting to see how well Haas does in the remainder of the year. As an American, I’d love to see them in the top ten for every race but realistically the team lucked into 6th via the red flag and achieved their position and reminded me very much of Sauber in last year’s Australian GP.
Will we see Haas F1 in the top ten again this year? Are you expecting top ten finishes from them consistently or do you feel that realistically they are more likely to take the battle to Sauber and should they win that battle, that’s a huge achievement as well.
