Can someone explain to me why the driver with the most spectacular achievments so far in his young career didn't win any "Driver of the Day" awards?
This will be interesting.
Oh, and can you guess which driver has had this "most spectacular early career?"

What odd world do you live in with that stupid false made up Henman statistic ? (which by definition you would in reality have NO CLUE who would vote for who anyway) -that is just so ridiculous it is bizarre to the extreme.
People are not obliged to be Vettel fans,not everyone wants to be a Fingerling , and they have complete freedom of choice to vote for who they like-which is what they have done and which shows that Vettel is obviously not everybodys 'cup of tea'.- (see what I did there)

Well, the fact that Kimi is voted up there with Alonso itself ends the story. 2 years hiatus, driving for the 4th best team with 1/4th the budget of Ferrari, yet produces consistent results and is immensely popular. Sorry to say, the future looks promising for Kimi (both in terms of races and sponsors) than Alonso.

If he wins races consistently in 2013 I believe the rest of the drivers might fade into oblivion. The Iceman does it without a blink.

(The split second response in first lap in Brazil where he avoided Sebastian vettel was for me, the move of the day. If he had hit Vettel, Alonso would have been the Champion. Simple as that).

The only thing this driver of the day statistic proves is that opinions about Vettel from the english speaking parts of the world are meaningless because they have no relation to whats going on in reality. When Button wins a race he is driver of the day, when Vettel wins one, not even top three. But then these are the same people who still vote for Tim Henman as the worlds greatest tennis player year after year.

Anyone who thinks that Alonso wasn't 'huge' this year isnt really an F1 fan and probably infected by fanboyism. His personality may not be everyones cup of tea, but who else could have taken the F2012 to the brink of the drivers championship. Ferrari's best season since 2008, where the weakest link was the car, the team and drivers though added up to more than the sum of the individual parts.
