...last time I checked, the last victory for Big Red was served by Mr. Kimi.
..and as I recall it was a superb drive in the 3rd fastest car, 2018 USGP.
I don't want to take away anything from Kimi's win but you seem you want to add a lot more meaning to it than it already has. Yes he's the latest race winner of team Ferrari and 'twas a superb drive from him that day but with this logic of yours do we get to praise Mr. Maldonado thanks to his superb and outstanding drive at Spanish GP and say he's the best Williams driver of the recent? I highly doubt if Vettel was to miss out on even a single victory for 4 years and then get one at the end of his Ferrari run, he would be praised as Mr. Vettel and all his past performances would be forgotten, I very much doubt it. One last thing Ferrari was weak in the second round of the season compared to rivals but they weren't the 3rd fastest car in United States.
...and the last time I did check Vettel brought home like something 13 of Ferrari's last 14 wins home
VGV...good points all. Please note my original post was supposed to have one more line:
"...all of which under the direction of Arri."
Darn phone I guess. I was in no way referring to Kimi being better than Vet,but I would aver that he could have had a few more wins if not for his team player attitude (Monaco at least). What I was trying to infer (ineptly) is that this team is a shadow of its 2018 form.
However, I stand by my belief of the Red Machine being the third best car...from the 2018 Japan till present. As for Kimi's win, likely would not have happened if not for the Max/Ham fight in the final laps...both cars were rapidly closing in the final laps.
