To be honest I think they have all done a good job, so far.

But who has surprised or impressed you most? . I think Alex Albon might be a popular choice if you not seen him before but to be honest like ozzy I have watched him in F2 and he seemed pretty Handy there. Tough one to call

Though choice as you say but Albon is definitly not my choice cause he makes mistakes here and there and his direct rival is Kvyat...so you can't really judge him.

Hard one between George and Norris as they have different conditions.I don't know if Norris could keep his calm and not over drive it if he had a Williams car and also I don't know if George's race craft could be as impressive as Norris if he was in a tightly packed midfield.

But if you want one name. So far it's Norris for me.

Agree with Russell. He seems to extract the best out of the difficult FW42.

I think I'd like to re-visit this thread after a few more races. Don't forget it took LeClerc 3 races to adapt his style to F1. But then he turned it around. Hopefully Giovinazzi will do the same.

I think Norris for now but hard to tell. They have all had some good performances. With the current situation at Williams and folk saying KUB's car is different, it's hard to tell.

That said, RUS is a huge positive for the team in terms of PR and is doing a superb job.

Albon? Yes, he has shown well. I think we'll need to get a few more races in before we can award the prize.

For now, for me, it would be Lando.

I wont say Russell until were happy the cars are the same. For me Norris is the man so far but I think George could do as good a ko

So so far we have 3 votes for Norris, 2 for our guy Russell.

I hadn't actually made a choice so far.. Im going for Norris too...

so that's 4-2 to Norris..... I am impressed with George too, not made any mistakes really but im not sure the car will allow him to shine like Norris who has a better car under him.. Like Gunk said... be Interesting to review this....

They are all quite ok, aren't they. We don't really have any obvious weak links this year . . . no Ericsson, no Hartley . . . as I mentioned in another thread, it's going to be tough for Ocon to find a spot.

I’m genuinely impressed by all three proper rookies and rooting for Giovinazzi to find his stride. George is great, but Norris and Albion are both doing a terrific job as well.

Need more time but Norris has looked good. Albon did well in China. Gio still struggling. George, well the car disappoints but he hasn't binned it so that's good (especially with all the news about parts shortage).

Phat, Albon is a Pom too I'm afraid. He was born in London.

I think they have all showed well and particularly NOR and RUS have been very positive on the social media side and seem to be loving life. I think Alex is maybe a slightly quieter character.

End of the day, I am very impressed with all of them in terms of speed, professional approach and lack of mistakes. Having watched all of them in lower formula, they all deserve an F1 ride but I think in terms of outright speed and racecraft, NOR and RUS have a slight edge.

I agree that they've all looked good.

I can forgive Alex for his mistake in China. He wasn't the only one to go off there and you can't fault him for his commitment in keeping his right foot planted and trying to ride it out. Vettel showed him how to recover it after the same mistake, but then Seb blew it last year with similar mistakes, so you can't just put it all down to rookie error. Alex made up for it in the race.

Hard to judge RUS given his car issues, but you've got to hand it to him for staying ahead of KUB, who's no slouch. George showed what he could do in testing if he had a Merc available.

On pure quali and results, I've been impressed with NOR, especially against his teammate.

Looking forward to see how they all develop during the season.
