How important are drivers in the present day as the complete game is now dependent on the quality of the car.

I think talent is still the most important thing. Yes Car performance, track and weather all play a key role. But do you think every driver would perform at the same level with the same car?

Just need to look at the qualifying to see how drivers change the game. Top drivers beating their partners with the same resources.

For the best ones, it is not just about putting together a good lap.

Specifically in the cockpit cams, i’ve seen the likes of Kimi, Hamilton make so many changes with the controls on their steering wheel as the race progresses. Changes designed to gain advantage on a lap to lap basis.

I would say that is sheer talent and judgement.


Agreed. BTW, just for my understanding. As you might read a blog on the same platform. What went wrong with F1? Why is it losing it’s popularity?

I don’t think all the teams are given a fair chance to succeed. Quite simply it is predictable and boring now. There has to be a level playing field. Impose some sort of limitations…curb the resources and allow every team to compete.
