Published on 02 October 2016 by Mike Motilall
For the fifth time this Formula 1-season, Max Verstappen has been voted ‘Driver of the Day’. Fans worldwide, casted their votes at Formula1.com during the race. The 19-year-old Dutchman had the most to his name when the Malaysian Grand Prix finished.
After an excellent third fastest time in qualifying, Max finished quite nicely in second, behind of team mate Daniel Ricciardo, on Sunday. Max was relegated to the sixth spot, after having a good getting off the line, when he had to take evasive actions from an accident between Vettel and Rosberg. A very offensive race brought him close to Ricciardo. A hard battle followed during which the Ossie was not to be outdone by the Dutchman. On lap 41, the engine of front runner Lewis Hamilton blew up, enabling the Red Bull Racing-drivers to reel in a fantastic one-two.
Just like after the Grands Prix of Spain (P1), Canada (P4), Austria (P2) and Great-Britain (P2), after the Malaysian GP, Max was once again voted ‘Driver of the Day’. The total score is now five, thanks to the fans.
