Oh, I'm a f***wit? The simple fact of the matter is that yep, MS IS A GREAT DRIVER, but he has needed the help of several team mates to get where he is today, FACT.

Rossi, is a fantastic rider which was proven when he went to Yamaha and won first time out, FACT.

Damon Hill was an OK driver that happened to have the best car (Williams) at that time. That car made him appear better than he was which was proved because what did he do before and after that drive? NOTHING!

I have watched F1 all my life and the best driver was our NIGE!!

(Do you happen to remember what he did in indycars first time out?)

Cheers....

The top F1 drivers always have great support.
MS has Ross Brown. Ross Brown followed MS from Benetton. Ferrari drivers have won more races when RB was dictating race strategy than MS has won for Ferrari. So you could say that RB has won more races for Ferrari than MS
Alonso has Pat Symonds at Renault, we'll see next year how good he really is. No matter how good he is, his financial future is pretty much secured .
Kimi Raikkonen is brilliant driver but has no really good really strategist behind him, and and seems to talk Finnish to his engineers. That's the main reason why he's inconsistent and just best of the rest.

Damon Hill was simply the best driver EVER when it comes down to telling the engineers how to set up the car. He went to a bottom team, Arrows, and would have won a race that year, had the car not broken down on the last lap. Then he went to another bottom team, Jordan, and won couple of races. And Williams cars have not even been near the top since the year after he left.
Mika Hakkinen was very good driver but not consistent enough and had to have his first couple of wins given to him.
Villenueve hasn't done anything worth mentioning in this century.

My opinion on MS since he hit Damon Hill, and Jack Villenueve couple of years later, is such that I wouldn't use MS marked batteries if they were given to me. His antics at Monaco just confirmed that you can have everything handed to you on silver plate and still fuck it up. Couple of months after he broke his legs he was healthy enough to play football but not to drive car . Then there is the "teammate give way" clause in his contract.

Well if the batteries were given to me I would use them , I'm not that stupid. But I would tape over the logo.

I don't think they'll fit the chassis. We're not talking about Sub-C size anymore.
