Re: Vettel vs. Leclerc

I suppose an appropriate question to ask would be; what manner of heroics can restore Vettel's reputation at this point? A season like this will be hard to bounce back from and beating Charles will more likely impact Charles's reputation than Vettel's. Could Lewis bounce back from 2007, 2010 and 20...

Re: Would Hamilton in the Ferrari have beat Hamilton in the

Given Hamilton is just a driver, and Ferrari have bigger problems than just their driver making silly mistakes, I’d say Hamilton wouldn’t have been able to win the title in the Ferrari. The car was just faster, slightly, during the first half of the season. The race strategy team does a great job o...
