Re: Who is the most underrated driver on the 2019 grid?

I would say Stroll overall. When Stroll came into the sport, did anyone expect him to be fast or keep it on the road based on his credentials and reason for getting a seat? In that regard, I think he's been criminally underrated. He's generally had a decent set of hands, and it seems the car is far ...
