I take your point, Pete, but a 4x WDC worthy of those titles should be able to consistently outperform Kimi who many regard as well past his best in motivation.

I don't subscribe to that view of Kimi. Given a car that's a worthy successor to his 2013 Lotus with Ferrari money and power I think he will at least equal Vettel and, just maybe, beat him.

Hope So !

If Hamilton doesn't get a third title I would want to see Kimi get his second.
