jeti, I'm not questioning the skills of any of them, in fact I'd rate the last seasons as having some of the most brilliant drivers ever, with NO exceptions. The letdowns would be the cars in my opinion. My point was to ask questions based on the information available and have it applied equally. I do not only admire a driver after he dies. Driving professionally is not a game even if it is a sport as lives, drivers and spectators are always on the line. The skills shown by these men, especially in the rain is otherworldly. I've driven in the rain.

Rosberg beat Hamilton n everyone in GP2 & was awarded a test drier position. So ur point about Rosberg is invalid btw Hamilton shudn't b in F1/ top car if Rosberg doesn't manage to based on GP2 which is a spec series with real F1 like(similar) engines,etc.

Vettel dominated in Formula BMW which awarded him a test driver position with Williams where he impressed being fastest in FP3 when Schumiwas still in his prime, Vettel was only a test driver n was testing for first time(3rd session), was only 17/18(physically weak as was still in growing age) n still in school.
Vettel's performance as a test driver awarded him a seat in Toro Rosso which is a lower midfield/backmarker team.
