It was announced yesterday that Max Verstappen has been awarded Driver of the Day by Formula 1 fans after the Malaysian Grand Prix.

The Red Bull driver was in contention for the race win at the Sepang International Circuit but he lost out to his team-mate Daniel Ricciardo.

F1 has changed the Driver of the Day rules, with the window to vote now beginning at the half-way point of the race and closing at the chequered flag.

Verstappen led briefly during the Malaysian GP and was involved in a close scrap with Ricciardo for second, before Lewis Hamilton’s engine failed and both drivers pitted under the Virtual Safety Car.

It’s the fifth time this season that Verstappen has picked up the award, after winning it in Spain, Canada, Austria and Britain.

Australia: Romain Grosjean
