More importantly will he ever be as good as Kimi, Lewis, Mika, Aryton, Montoya, Alonso or Prost? Very unlikely. Those who support Perez need to remember that joining Mclaren is a privilege, and one which will pit you against the great. Being a decent driver shouldn't be a merit that make you worthy of another season. You must excel beyond expectations, like making the podium even when the car doesn't cut it.
Absolutely correct. There is no point McL playing the percentages and ending up with mediocrity. Their greatest years were also when they have the greatest drivers.
Even when Hakkinen and Senna were driving around in crap cars their raw speed was clear to see. That's what McL need in at least one of their cars. Raw speed. If they need to keep changing drivers until they find it, that's the better option than playing it safe.
McL need to start being bold and take some risks. If they don't, I can't see them (or anyone else) knocking RB off their perch any time soon.
