That's your opinion, but a driver doesn't get to Formula 1 and isn't employed by arguably the best team in F1 by making the same mistakes every single race or being a poor driver. He's had horribly reliablility his entire career, just like Kimi did. He was barely a World Champion because his car failed him at every other race. Mark is a great driver and something must be wrong with his car, this has never happened to him in his entire career. If he's an average driver then why is it his car, and only his car, that goes into anti-stall at the beginning of every race? What's your explanation other than he's a middle of the pack guy?
I don't disagree with your point about him getting to F1; nobody gets to F1 without talent (unless you're Sakon Yamamoto). However he didn't land into the best team in F1; he landed into a midfielder; that developed themselves to a top-level team.
