Re: Would you swap Perez for Vettel?

I've lost my faith in Vettel, love him too bits, but makes too many mistakes.

Re: Best overtaker

Gotta be Mansell, Lewis and Ricciardo.....

Would love to see a real live GP of Jimmy Clark back in the day.

I've also seen some great overtakes by Button during his Championship year 2009 WC title starting 15th? and the Canadian GP 2011 from last place.

Watching some old F1 races from 1991, I came to France and the first race at Magny Cours. Before the race Mansell reckonned the track would be a nightmare as it was impossible to overtake. In the race he had to catch and pass Prost's Ferrari twice to win, which he did with 2 superb overtakes. So it...

Re: Which of Schumacher's remaining records will Lewis break

Indeed the shorter the season than the more chance of Bottas beating Hamilton. the Not at all. One driver (it could be Lewis) gets off to a great start, then the other driver has less races to make up the difference. The assumption that a shorter season hurts Lewis more than Bottas is a bit ridicul...
