Re: Sergio Perez

I think he's the most underrated driver in F1. You have to be very good to do so many podiums in midfield cars. Probably close to the top 3 Alonso/Hamilton/Vettel and similar to Bottas/Kimi/Button and such. I think he's better than Hulk too.

Re: Are F1 Drivers the Best?

Glorified go-cart jockeys. The best drivers are undoubtedly in rallying. The car control is incredible, the road surface is constantly varying and unpredictable, plus they don't get to hone it to perfection from lap to lap. If they push a bit too hard it's not a trip to the run-off and come back on...

Can't really compare onboards without knowing how many aero both cars have. Maybe the McLaren is again going lower on aero to limit the loss on the straights so they go also slower in corners, who knows.

I wouldn't call them a complete failure, but so far they have mostly failed to achieve what they set out to achieve (2 or 3 second faster laps) while delivering the negative aspects as predicted (less overtaking).

It's difficult to understand, really.
