I would put Leclerc over Seb today.
He proved it last season in the same car.

Hamilton has never been in a shitbox, but he's not always been in a top car. No one disputes that a driver must have a car capable of winning races in order to win races, but not everyone can win in a car capable of it. It seems pretty clear that Hamilton could have won the 2018 WDC in that year's Ferrari given that he won it in a car that wasn't as fast.

I always thought that the 2018 Ferrari was better than the Mercedes. Mercedes and Lewis won because they know what they’re doing as a team compared to Ferrari who seem to be run by a bunch of clowns. Vettel knew that the Ferrari team was weaker compared to Mercedes and started pressing causing all of his issues.

Right. For the most part, Lewis and Mercedes maximize their opportunities and don't squander them chasing the impossible.

Bottas is unfortunately nothing more than a decent driver and great team mate which suits Hamilton.

We all know Russell and Wolff want Russell to be in the Mercedes seat.

Bottas and Ocon at Renault seem like a good pairing.

How about the rumour Alonso is taking the Renault seat?

I think Liberty Media was willing to pay part of Alonso's salary.

Renault doesn't match the criteria Alonso gave for his return to F1. If he just wants to drive, though, why not?

Flavio shouldn't be allowed to be part of the sport in any way.

Do you reckon Benetton used launch and traction control in 1994?
The presence of Flavio and Walkinshaw suggests yes. The presence of Brawn suggests no. So... ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
