The old adage of beating your team mate may give us some sort of comparison, but it can't be just that used to judge a driver against another. Granted, Max does seem to be a once in a generation talent. That doesn't mean Dan is no good any more. Dan can still drive a car at the top tier and win races / championships.
These days a crucial setup can be the difference between a driver looking god like or trash. Most drivers do comment on the edginess of the cars and their difficulty to find the sweet spot. Never mind the added complication of driving style suiting the the chassis and engine mapping.
Will be great to see how the two of them fight it out over the coming years. Pretty sure we will have some amazing battles.
In general terms, not naming any names - And it isnt just reserved to this driver comparison, you see it in many others. But I asked here as this seemed to have a balanced debate going on
