All I want to say regarding Rosberg is, if he is a measure for greatness...that’s pretty sad. Beating him, imo is no bigger deal than Schumacher beating Herbert, or Hakkinen beating Coulthard. Really. Nobody sane would consider beating Coulthard or Herbert a measure of greatness, imo, anymore than beating Rosberg as some measure of great achievement.
Anyway, Merc is a beast of a team. I’m shocked they have built the car they have. It will be interesting to see how they recover and how long it takes.
He dominated the man that usurped Schumacher, that some argue is one of the greatest, as a rookie though. That means he belongs in the best cars and dominated with them as expected.
And you are wrong. Hamilton could have beaten drivers like a Chandhok, Bottas etc if he was in the Ferrari in 17 and 18. Even Luca Cordero di Montezemolo said as much about Hamilton beating Vettel if he was in their Ferrari those years.
Rosberg, Sainz, Ricciardo and Vettel are not Herbert.
Leclerc - beaten by sainz
Verstappen - beaten by ricciardo
Norris - beaten by Sainz
Alonso lost h2h to Truli and was Beat by Hamilton
Great drivers don’t always win, the greatest just have a level that favour them to win much more than lose. And Hamilton has done that more than those drivers have in dominant cars and with lesser cars.
