So Verstappen should have checked his mirrors at Brazil and not crashed into Ocon?
Its hard to keep up with the logical gymnastics that puts the blame always on anyone but Verstappen.

For VER we'd need a, "Top 173 crashes". It'd get us about 15% of the way there.

People tend to forget that it's much easier to not crash when your car is superior since you spend less time on the edge than everyone else.

Or if you can't discern the limits of the car like a certain driver.

Like at Turkey where Verstappen was on full spin cycle despite having a clearly superior car?

"Clearly superior"? I think clarity over superiority of the cars in that race is lacking.

3rd place F1 driver, best of the rest behind Mercs...Can't discern limits of a racecar...Doesn't bode well for the level of competition in the pinnacle of motorsport ay?

Well mate , the level of the competition was shown by George Russell in HAM's Mercedes spaceship in warp-speed ...
Too bad , Russell was sabotaged !

MAX got 5 DNF . 4 times it was the RB16 .
Otherwise MAX was 2nd . Because It's actually not hard to beat Bottas (grandma)

Think this isn't looking bad for a 23 year old kid . MAX was the only driver who could fool the Mercs and break through the never ending Merc dominance ..

There was quite a bit of crowing during FP1, 2, 3 and even qualifying when VER choked in Turkey.

There was so much laughing at Sir Lewis and Mercedes at how VER and RBR were going to clean their clocks.

We know what happened.

Yes MAX would and should today, but in SEBís prime, highly unlikely.

How many WDCís does MAX have again?

your comment just tells me you really are not so much into evaluating driver talent in relation to the car they are driving. Alonso and Hamilton, without a shadow of a doubt, would have won the WDC likewise driving Vettel's car during his championship years. He had a dominant car. When he has a dominant car and a team mate not on par with him, he delivers. When he has a not so superior car and a team mate that is competitive, he cracks under the pressure, as we all know now.

Vettel was already outperformed by Ricciardo and LeClerc so your insinuation that just because Max has no WDC's somehow makes him a lesser talent than Vettel is frankly, ridiculous. In fact, I would even venture Vettel wont be able to beat Lance Stroll. I do know you just said what you said is just for fun and games as I do sense you understand the logic of what I just said so all good!
