I don’t think there’s any doubt that he’s one of the best drivers ever to have lived. The fact that he’s won all his titles with the same team is irrelevant, as far as I’m concerned. You simply don’t become a multiple world champion without being consistently fast, without a a fantastic team behind you, and without being a little bit ruthless when needed.
I’m not his biggest fan, but part of me would love to see how far he could actually go. Could he beat Schumacher’s record of 7 world titles? Race wins? Pole Positions? If Red Bull can get their house in order in time for the big rule change next season, it’d take a brave man to bet against him.
And the fact that he’s remained humble, maybe even modest, despite all his success, I think is my favourite trait of his. The guy is brilliant, and he deserves all the success he gets.
