@catracho504 They lost to someone who, in ROC terms, is not a nutcase – because his nutcase nature was crashing into other cars. Of which there are none in ROC (there’s a wall separating you). Grosjean always has had the speed – as he showed when, plopped in a dog without testing in 2009 (the Renault) he was only 1 tenth away from Alonso in his first ever qualifying session (Q1 Valencia).
Schumi didn’t beat SV in the individual ROC event. Both were beaten by Grosjean. Schumi could have beaten Vettel, Vettel could have beaten Schumi. We have no info to go either way.
And what if the team that knocked them out didn´t win the world cup, does it matter?
This statement is useless, because in this case – the guy did win the “world cup” – the ROC cup, in this case. Let’s not forget that Button, Vettel, Schumacher and Alonso have all competed in the ROC – and none have ever won the drivers’ cup.
you have to be good behind the wheel to dominate EVERY type of car… That´s what makes a driver, a champion… and most importantly if you make it to the pinnacle of motorsports
There are drivers who are rubbish in ROC cars but excellent in F1 cars. There are those who are excellent in ROC cars but rubbish in F1 cars. There are those who are excellent/rubbish in both.
The ROC is a good measure of how good the drivers drive ROC cars. They are a rubbish measure of how good the drivers drive anything else. Sadly not a lot of people realise that.
Here’s a stat for you – none of the current 6 F1 champions have a 100% record of beating their teammates. They’ve all been beat by teammates at some point in their careers. I for one don’t think that means they’re any less a champion.
I don’t know if you’re being thick on purpose – or just unintentionally thick.
