And after that? IIRC it was 4 championships for Seb to one for LH. Then LH took off and made it his era.

This is a comically irrelevant statistic. And BTW, HAM and ALO each received 109 points.

And one more note: I'm sure that if you did the math, you'd find that "the anointed one" started from pole much more often than Vettel. Talk about someone who's never had to pass.

Your dad raced in USAC....

I believe he either won or placed in that first race ever and the rest was history. Worked his way up to USAC and raced for many years.
What was (is) his name??

Of course. It's only logical. He's the all-time leader in pole positions. What's your point?

And the survey says...


Quote:
Sebastian Vettel admitted he needs to improve his individual performances next year after being outperformed by Ferrari team-mate Charles Leclerc this season.

The four-time world champion was beaten in the championship by the young Monegasque - the first time he has been out-scored in a title race by his team-mate.

Is this thread sponsored by AutoSport? Opinions here (yes, opinions not facts) are copied and pasted from their dumb articles. My Autosport subscription was the worst way I can spend $50. I can just come here and read the same bullshit 😂

This is an opinion poll as I planned it to be. Those of the opinion that VET would manage to beat LEC were wrong. It's plain and simple.

It remains to be seen if Vet will support Lec in what some believe will be his last season in F1 as a parting gift for the operational failures of past.

Take my $50, print your opinion, label it "Autosport", and mail it to me 😂 jk. Let's first see if Ferrari can produce a decent car.

I cannot see Vettel supporting ANY driver, especially Leclerc.

He will be going all out to try and redeem himself.
