I do think that Max is in the top 3 on the grid. I won't say who I think the other one is...I will cause a meltdown.

I can't believe I'm the one advocating for Max now, but what can I say. 2020 is just that kind of a year.

I think he's a solid #3 in current field of drivers. He finished 3rd last year, and looks on pace to do the same this year. He has a shot to get one higher if hew can outperform BOT, but nowhere close to Lewis.

If you consider past drivers than yeah, definitely not top 3 yet.

One rumour is that if Russell doesn't have a seat for 2021 he will join Merc as the back up driver in preparation for a race seat in 2022.

There is also the chance that with Grosjean and Magnussen out of Haas for 2021 that Russel might find a home there.

Yea I'm considering the full history of each driver on the grid. Ham, Ver, Raik, Soon to be Alonso, Ricc, Bottas... ill put Norris at the top of the young guns then Verstappen with LeClerc.

I'm hoping Hulkenberg finds his way back to and Haas might not be the best ride ever, but at least it is still F1.

How can you expect an answer to this question? Max's car has never been near MB performance.

Do we know how wide the gap is? VER seems like he can beat BOT straight up on a semi regular basis. Why isn't it always 1-2 BOT/HAM every week? Why does HAM still outdrive BOT regularly in the same machinery?

Maybe has something to do with the guy behind the wheel, maybe?

Probably 2012, as well because of 5 retirements and the pit stop gaffes...UGH. It was painful to watch. Painful.

As you know only Red Bull can give you wings . Because the HONDA PU is to weak for a real fight with the powerful Benz.
That's why drinking Red Bulls is required in the situation...

Hamilton has driven against and in the same team as some of the all time greats in the sport (Alonso) with inferior machinery and still beaten them. In almost every season he's competed in, he's competed for the world championships even when he's had a dogshit car. I'm sorry, but while Verstappen is an extremely promising young driver, and may come up to the same level as Hamilton, he isn't at that level yet.
