Re: Williams Vs Benetton 1994 (split from Hamilton/Verstappen thread)

In Brazil Senna couldn't live with Schumacher and I guess in part that's why he spun, trying so hard at his home race, I would say it was Senna's incredible qualifying ability that got him 3 poles in an inferior car. As to Schumacher's teammates well did they have the same car as Schumacher, Jos th...

We've all seen how hot-headed Verstappen can be - Brazil 2018 being a prime example.

Just because he couldn't bear the thought of a 'slower car' unlapping himself he chose to race Ocon, and lost a win as a result.
