Re: Williams' best driver 1996-present

In terms of their Williams performances I'd go with: Hill - He outperformed DC and JV quite comprehensively and they were both talented and motivated young drivers. Class of the field in 96. Schumi maybe have aced Barca but Hill was awesome in the wet in Monaco (Schumi crashed on lap 1) and Brazil ...

Re: Is Hamilton now rising to be the best of his generation?

Almost all of the car setup during the race weekend is determined by the engineers. The driver does offer the input of "it is pushing exit turn 3" and stuff like that but such input is not based on technical proficiency, just driver feel. Between P2 and P3, all data is uploaded back to the factory,...

Re: McLaren Renault deal

So while a move to Renault would at least see them finish more races, it doesn't guarantee they will do well enough to even finish top 5 and such a deal would most definitely NOT bring the millions of dollars Honda does.
