And he doesn't make rookie mistakes: he's desperately trying to get ahead of a clearly faster car, and has to make some ballsy moves, or end up 3rd or lower each race.

I'm at a loss to understand why Hamilton - who has always had a top car - is considered to have proven himself better than Vettel, who (like Alonso) has proven his abilities with a range of machinery.
You're one of about 13 people on the entire planet that thinks VET is equal to HAM. I've been watching Formula One since I was about 10 years old and I"m in my early 50's. I've met Michael Schumacher, Nico Rosberg, Niki Lauda, Ross Brawn, Bernie, Norbert Haug, David Coulthard, Bernd Maylander, Susie Wolff, and a host of others in F1.

There is NO ONE closely associated with the sport that would agree with anything you've posted relative to comparing VET to HAM. Wake up and release your bias.

HAM is the GOAT.
so MK, you've probably noticed that we agree on most things regarding modern motorsports. we clearly hold the same views regarding Lewis including, for example, that he is the greatest living F1 driver, and by a good margin. as for the title GOAT, however, my choice was made a long time ago and will be hard for me to give up. I accept the possibility that Lewis may already be there, but at least for the near term this guy is GOAT==>
