How is Leclerc irrelevant? He is also one of the best drivers on the grid and has put the Ferrari in a better spot than it deserves for the past 2 years. If Ferrari has a top 3 car again in 2022 Leclerc could easily be a championship contender.

Agreed!

Painful though to see Danny struggling so bad. That kid Lando probably is seriously quick.

Yes, results. Obviously you have to factor in the equipment they use. This is not the IROC series where they have the same cars.

Stirling Moss is a great driver BUT has never won a championship so if you are going strictly by results, he would not be considered a great driver, if I am understanding what you are trying to say.

LOL! What is this based on? He's literally average at best, and even when Ferrari was cheating he didn't look good. He struggled against what is now a washed Vettel, only beating him because of sheer luck and technical issues.

I've never understood why people hype guys like him up when he'll go his entire career and not win a damn thing. Bet on it.

Lewis - massive gap in talent - Maybe Max, but probably Lando, then Bottas, and finally literally anyone else.
I don't see Charles, or George as a stand out in any regard, but I'm also not a hype man.

I would say beating a 4 time WC who has been in the car for years on his first year in the new car with a new team is worth something.

Vettel is washed dude. I like him a lot, (pretty much more than anyone else but Lewis) but he's clearly not at the top of his game. Kimi was always an average driver with a decent car, and look at how much he struggles.

Wow, I can't see HAM letting that happen!!!

I'd love to see HAM vs. RUS!!! He might be able to put up a proper fight given enough seat time to get comfortable.

HAM vs RUS ? No way my friend !

"IF" the Russell boy joins HAM at Mercedes ...Then the Russell boy is HAM's new lap dog !

Otherwise it won't happen ...

That's why Bottas has to go !!!

I don't think it will happen either. At least not until The WDC is decided. No way Toto wants Starwars 2 on his hands. He almost lost his mind last time. IMHO RUS is far more talented than ROS or BOT.

Iím still trying to understand how Charles or Russell are rated so high when they havenít accomplished a damn thing.

Should HAM retire I just don't see BOT staying on as a #1. IMHO I'd ditch BOT for several other drivers including LEC, RUS or possibly NOR.
