Well, today with the YDT the F1 saison came to an end.
Nyck de Vries who never drove an F1 car was 2th overall today in the W11.
What are they saying? The result is 90% of the car and 10 % of the driver.
NdeV has some success in his back catalogue. Won titles in junior series and has won races in LMP2 too. Obviously has some talent.
Of course, the real point that you've conveniently forgotten to mention
is that he's 1.3s slower than the Mercedes F1 team drivers in the same car at this circuit.
So you want to compare Nyck de Vries, who has never driven an F1 car before in his life, to Bottas,
who has driven 4 seasons with Williams and 4 seasons with the world champion Mercedes ?!
You even want to compare him with a 7! time world champion, who is currently counted as the best driver on the grid and already 8! years drives with the world champion Mercedes ?!
You are right, Nyck should be able to match their times right away.
