    Why do some teams insist on flogging a dead horse? I think if you haven't proven you've got talent by the half way point of a season, move over and give someone else a go. There are plenty of up coming talented drivers who I'm sure could do a better job in the same car than, for instance, sirotkin, even, let kubica have a go. He was good in his day, and has proven he's still got it, also, in the past, drivers like wherlein and speed and Chilton. What was the point of them. Surely there was better drivers to choose from then those. They should be given race by race contracts and if they don't deliver, loose the dead weight. Harsh, but true. Kimi stood out in his early career driving an uncompetitive car, so did senna, verstappen, vettel and james hunt. These useless drivers get by protected by there contracts, and must know they aren't good enough. Let's see next year how ricciardo does in the Renault, not saying sainz and hulkenberg aren't any good, because they clearly are. But let's see how much quicker he can go in the same car. Also, look how leclerc had performed in that sauber. Erricson has never been able to do that, why? Because he isn't good enough. Let's see how much kimi out performs his team mate at sauber next year. It's meant to be the pinnacle of motorsport, if you aren't a driver at the pinnacle of driving talent, go drive in formula e.

    Top 5 drivers of all time and why. .....
    1. Tazio Nuvorlari. What he did with a car that was seriously under powered compared to his rivals , was unbelievable.
    2. Niki Lauda. His knowledge of the car was something else, and to come back after a potentially career stopping accident, and winning two more championships, shows how special he is.
    3. Ayrton Senna. His concentration and skill in not only qually, but over a race was uncanny
    The car never looked stable, but looked almost as though it was dancing around , on the limit/verge of spinning yet he could hold it on that limit, to outstanding results. He was also the master of the wet.
    4. Lewis Hamilton, although not a popular choice, and his career is ongoing, you cannot ignore his skill and determination. It's almost as though Senna was reincarnated.
    5. My number 5 is between two drivers that we didn't see that much of, by if they'd lived I'm sure they would have won numerous titles, first, Wolfgang von tripps, and second is Jochen Rindt both of which, showed outstanding talent and bravery, in an era when drivers were dying every season, sometimes numerous drivers a season.

  3. Carson Lemmon

    come on! Fangio won 24 of his 51 races entered. Thats 47%, No one comes close and he started
    all but 3 from the front row. He was in his mid 40's when winning his 5th world championship.
    Educate yourself on his 1957 Germen GP victory.
