Precisely. Does anyone believe that Irvine and Barichello were better than Schumacher. Does anyone believe that Button and Rosberg were better than Hamilton? Next - would you put those four drovers in roughly the same bracket?
Not even Edmund himself believed that!

Re: Help please you kind Pf1ers

Sorry Dolo, I just got around doing it. No apology necessary, you don't owe me anything! Looks like DC was actually a good test though as I hadn't realised just how much Webber had dominated. I'm guessing peoples perception here is often affected by how good the car was at the time the teammates we...

Re: Help please you kind Pf1ers

So 100% of us have put Klien last, not surprisingly. I'm a little surprised by all the Hakkinen #1 votes. I wonder if those are from people misunderstanding the purpose of the vote? While Hakkinen is very likely the best of the five drivers, my feeling is that he did not dominate Coulthard the way ...

I don't think I will be able to do it without thorough analysis which would take ages, as an overview he seemed to get beat quite easily by Hakkinen, Kimi and Webber, was a bit closer to Hill and better than Klein. That's kind of the aim really though to see if the method supports or contradicts yo...

I'll hold off on voting until the poll is sorted out but it's actually quite a touch exercise.

Hamilton had Button comfortably beat for 2.5 seasons out of 3. 2010, Hamilton dominated Button. Button finished ahead of Hamilton 3 times when both finished. 2 were in mixed conditions when Button gambled (whilst behind Hamilton) and won the race. The other was in Japan when Hamitlon was a long way...

Re: Hamilton vs Schumacher and their contemporaries (split from Official Hamilton Thread)

In my opinion, you can find reasons to give Schumacher the nod and such to give Hamilton the nod. It's a close call. Two things, for me, decide it in Hamilton's favour: - he raced stronger teammates, and - Schumacher had more and more severe unfair actions ("lack of sportsmanship"). :thumbup: but I...
