Jimmy Johnson- Alonso car swap

Post by strad » Fri Dec 07, 2018 2:18 am

I their car swap Jimmy Johnson was only a little over 2 tenths off Alonso's bench mark time in the F1 car.
You should go to youtube to check out the videos. None are full length TV shows (which bums me out) but there are some interesting snippets.

If he is really only 2 tenths off Alonso's time that is incredible. No F1 car test before. F1 cars with down force levels like never before. F2 talents that fail to make the jump over the gap between F2 and F1- Considering how long it takes for people to adapt to F1 cars we should now consider JJ the best racing driver ever born. Hamilton can get his coat. Vettel should drive DTM. Verstappen? Who is this guy. Senna, the second best behind JJ.

JJ fastest racer on earth. NASCAR the pinnacle of motor racing.



Yet, i don't buy this two tenths. If he was 1,5sec slower at this show event i would consider it to be a absolutely amazing performance by JJ
