If so, how much does that say about his presence - as what I'd call a relative junior? I was thinking the same, he's had 2 seasons in F1 so far, he is a young driver. I would expect ...

Re: Feeling Old

I sometimes go on here about starting to watch F1 in the 80's, which was 40 yrs ago but a decade that to me seems so recent.
