There's a distinction between wanting more and motivation? Having not a title makes a driver desperate and that's a good thing? You did claim that NOT having title might give an edge when battling someone who does have one.
It's rubbish. Just like it was rubbish saying Hamilton has an edge over Verstappen laat year because of his titles. If anything having a good car/team motivates or driving circles around your team mate. Having zero, one or seven titles doesn't change a thing in that.
Feel free to disagree, I'll leave it at that.
Desperation is good if it translates to hunger and absolute pushing on the maximum around the tedious and arduous efforts outside of the race track while avoiding the potential pitfalls it can bring.
and yes Hamilton did have an edge last year where if he raced like Verstappen does at The age of 23, he would've got torpedoed off track a number of times if he was uncompromising and unyielding like a desperate whipper snapper. Instead, he actually outfoxed him in those sorts of moments multiple times apart from Monza which would've meant allowing Max through to push him off wide. Max took a risk in Silverstone and easily that would've been one of the places he lost the championship if he wasn't given a handful of points by Masi across the season.
Having no success yet, tell that to Honda who threw the kitchen sink at it and got a drivers title. I guess you don't acknowledge the room for complacency increases as you achieve something and go on to achieve it again and again.
