Re: Is Vettel at Aston Martin starting to look like Mansell at Mclaren in 95?

He just needs a clean weekend with no reliability trouble so he can get the laps in and the confidence. As someone said earlier after 5 races we should start to have a better idea.

Re: Button is better than Hamilton in the wet - True or False?

False. Lewis is generally in a class of his own in the wet. Silverstone 08, Fuji 2007, suzuka 2014, interlagos 2016, Turkey 2020, monaco 08 no one could get beer him.

Max. If he gets into the Mercedes he will be the dominant one but George may be close behind.

Re: Is Mercedes unbeatable?

At the moment they consistently have the desire to keep winning, improve on themselves, keep learning and make very little mistakes and of course have the best driver. This is why they are unbeatable on my opinion

Re: The Rainmasters of Formula 1

Hamilton for me. The way he can instantly find the grip off line and continues to adapt his driving lines as the track and grip evolves. You need a lot of confidence and belief in your own ability to do that as its so much easier just to stick to what you know.
