First off, gotta respect the 6-year bump. As to your suggestion... I can see the reasoning, and I struggle to come up with a good argument against it despite not feeling quite right with it. Certainly, in the early days of F1, teams ran with many different numbers of cars. Therefore, it can't be ag...

Re: Perez/ Albon/Gasly/Ricciardo vs Verstappen

I wouldn’t really consider Dan a journeyman. Of those 5 teams, 1 was arranged by Red Bull to get him some exposure before joining TR, and another was a promotion from the sister team to the A team.

IMO only 2 moves have been on his terms, moving out of Red Bull to Renault, then Renault to Mclaren.
