I am very confident that Bottas would regularly outqualify Trulli - and easily beat him in the races.A.J. wrote: ↑Sun May 02, 2021 3:51 pmRespectfully disagree - Trulli was one of the outright best qualifiers in his prime, and with the Merc it would not surprise me to see him racking up championships. With someone like Bottas as a teammate it isn't even a challenge tbh.Paolo_Lasardi wrote: ↑Fri Apr 30, 2021 6:42 pmIf anyone of Hamilton, Rosberg or Bottas was in the second Mercedes, Trulli would have scored either zero titles or maybe one lucky one.A.J. wrote: ↑Fri Apr 30, 2021 4:56 pmHe was a contemporary of Schumacher - and if he had the most dominant cars in the history of the sport for 5 years (and at worst best or equal best for the other 2 - 7 years running!), he would be right up there in title counts. Remember that this is the guy who beat Alonso as a team-mate, despite being woefully out of favour with the team-boss (arguably worse than the situation Alonso faced in 2007).pokerman wrote: ↑Fri Apr 30, 2021 12:11 pmI'm not the one that brought Trulli forward and was he really a contemporary of Hamilton, I have to wonder how far off topic this thread is continually going to live.
In the "qualify 1-2 and run away" hybrid era with the Mercs, a driver like him would undoubtedly flourish.
And, taking all races in which they were teammates, Alonso clearly beat Trulli.
I don't think that Trulli was better than Massa, for instance.
