F1 Driver of the Day is back for 2023 to provide a sub-plot to the latter stages of every single grand prix as fans get the chance to vote on the award.
Launched back in 2016, Driver of the Day is an official F1 award which creates much debate.
Remember, this is not about who wins the race or who has the fastest car. It’s the driver who has performed the best given the challenges he has faced on any given Sunday.
Carlos Sainz won the vote in Singapore, having become the first driver this season to win a race while not sitting in the cockpit of a Red Bull.
Liam Lawson got a good share of the vote too, after being the first of Yuki Tsunoda's team-mates this season to achieve a point-scoring finish.
Carlos Sainz - 21.2%
Liam Lawson - 14.4%
Lando Norris - 13.6%
George Russell - 9.8%
Max Verstappen - 7.6%

As we said, this is all about the F1 fans getting a chance to decide the award during every single race.
Voting opens during the latter stages of each race and closes when the race ends.
It’s incredibly simple to get involved. You just need to go to the voting page on the official F1 website and cast your vote once the window opens.
Your next opportunity is on Sunday July 9 for the British Grand Prix at Silverstone.
Drivers do not receive a trophy and there is no financial incentive. It is simply a recognition of a driver's performance from the viewing public.
