Re: Stewart: Hamilton not at the level of Fangio etc

And for those who said Fangio had the best - well - Alfa yes but with 3-6 team mates and poor reliability and not favoured - then not the best V ferrari in 1952-53 - then best 54-55 - then best in Ferrari in 1956 - then second best (yes second best) in 1957 - only won because he beat other fantatic ...

Re: Stewart: Hamilton not at the level of Fangio etc

It's interesting what people say in terms of comparisons - Dolomite has given some context but what is missing is the extreme danger in the early days compared to now - The reality is that there was 10% chance of DYING every time a driver raced in the 50s - and many did - so to even survive (let alo...

Re: McLaren could have blocked Sainz going to Ferrari

DR was apparently McL first pick 2 yrs ago - but couldn't get him over line - while Sainz has done a great job - with a Merc engine next yr - is this a game changer - or will McL be compromised on integrating the engine in 2021 so not as competitive like Ferrari til rule changes?

Re: Official Max Verstappen thread

I think it's clear max is a talent - but has had preferential treatment at team as well (not that it's been the main issue affecting his success I add)
Still - I'm less clear that max would perform in a midfield car - and not sure without preferential treatment he'd do as well as he has
