Romain Grosjean has been awarded the Official Driver of the Day accolade for the Bahrain Grand Prix.
Having taken the award following the Austrailian Grand Prix, Grosjean and the Haas F1 Team are clearly becoming fan favourites. The number of votes cast or ranking of other drivers has not been made available at this time. With much greater emphasis on the vote from social media commentators it can be expected participation levels will have significantly increased for the Bahrain Grand Prix.
Links to future votes will be posted on this site.

Formula One have announced through social media that Romain Grosjean has been awarded the inaugural driver of the day honour.
This despite indications ahead of the vote closing that he was sitting in second position behind Rio Haryanto. In confirming the award the F1 social media channel commented that multiple votes from the same user had been not been counted, this may account for change in overall results.
Without taking anything away from Romain, by far and away the most deserving of the accolade it was surprising to see how few votes were actually cast in the process. Hopefully as the season gathers pace a more representative number of votes will be cast in the process. The below twitter exchange explains how users were able to monitor the progress of the vote
