Yep, career-pattern wise the similarities between Jacques V and Hamilton are almost identical. It wouldn’t surprise me if Lewis never won another championship again. Mind you, I certainly don’t question his talent; but rather his behavior, tolerance, attitude and maturity.
That being said, there’s no one faster than him currently in Formula One.
simply from the history point of view. Just guessin from the facts.
Here’s a fact for you: McLaren have repeatedly said that they will take the best two drivers available, and that nationality isn’t important. If the best driver available is, say, Nico Hulkenberg, then McLaren would be fools to take the next-best alternative simply because Hulkenberg is German.
