You just make youself look silly trying to even put Stroll in the breath as Lewis the fastest guy perhaps of all time next to Senna. It completely shuts down anything you were even trying to convey. Be a fan of Stroll fine.. accept the truth.. As for Lewis, everyone knows he hasn't had a clean Q3 start.. Lost his engineer to Bottas and it's unsettled his quali prep.
Ocon was faster in qualifying by a fair margin over Perez. Perez is destroying Lance thus far in qualifying... So Lance is horrendous over 1 lap pace. That's not even up for debate. FULL STOP.
Lance wouldn't be at RP if it wasn't for his father. NO debate.
Lance was only at WIlliams for his dads cash after year 1 especially.. NO debate. He wasn't in the team on merit.
Lance isn't at RP on merit, he's there by his father choice solely and his father hoped Lance's Williams form was due to the Williams desig turmoil that is beyond evident this season which Sr. must have known well..
Unfortunately for Stroll Sr... its clear his son is simply not 1lap fast.. which is a big deal.
How Stroll is going to deal with it remains to be seen.. he may just be fine with it and just ensure they have a bonifide NO. 1 that isn't his son..and hope his son is close enough to collect the remaining points behind the lead driver. It's not as if RP is going to leap into top 3 before 2021..
Tough days for the Stroll Family.. way back on the grid from where they technical talent should have them. The worse pairing the FI team has had in a while. We'll see how capable Stroll Sr. is to make the hard calls when needed.
You just made yourself look silly by not understanding context and nuance, it undoes all your silliness trying to compare Stroll to Hamilton FULL STOP (!).
Is it or is it not a FACT that Stroll was closer to Perez than Hamilton to Bottas? 'Oh but reasons.....'
Put simply, just for you, I'll reiterate that some context needs to be used, Stroll ISN'T getting destroyed by Perez, he's lacking 0.2 sec under the pressure of qualifying, he always has. To use your point against you, you're like most Hamilton apologists, there always an excuse why Hamilton isn't number one on any given day, but maybe sometimes he just doesn't drive like a number one.....
I'll reiterate for you, my mantra here, context. I'm not a Stroll fan, I'm ambivalent, I'd love Ocon back in that seat, and there's drivers more deserving than he, for sure, but he's certainly no waste of time, and his dad has helped save a team, that buys Lance some time in my book.
Maybe he can find those 2 tenths in qualifying, maybe he cant, I think Perez will be a great consistent reference for him to try, so I'm prepared to give him the season to see if he progresses, he's pretty solid in races, doesn't crash into people, isn't reckless like Haas' boys.
Again, just for you, context, there's been far worse drivers in F1, if he was 1 sec off the pace every qualy, sure, chuck his ass out, but he's not. These Perelli's seem to be a nightmare to understand, more so this year. 0.2 sec is better than I thought he'd be....
As for Ocon, he was MARGINALLY faster than Perez over a lap, and Perez is not destroying Stroll by any means, even if you do add FULL STOP as a means of desperately making your point true
Hamilton as good as Senna? Give me a break.......
