The luck of birth decides, if a person drives a rickshaw ,a bullock a taxi or a f1 car.
How many naturally gifted bullock drivers could of made it in F1?
If life was fair....our F1 grid and history would prolly have completely different names.
Most sports don't discriminate on ones socio economic background like f1....Max needs to shut up and drive and realize he is one of the luckiest people on this planet.

Most of the time the offspring of the privileged class can go through life without much scrutiny or head to head comparison with those born of lesser classes but possessing superior talent. They are not taken to task but skate through life in their own monied little bubbles. F1 for all its faults doesn't allow that.

Historically being a British driver is a massive advantage in F1.
Button Hill Lewis DC all had there first drives in the fastest cars on the grid ,,no working through the back of the grid for them...though l will say Lewis is the real deal.
British team owners ( which is the major part of the grid) love having British drivers....even a soft driver in the best car can win wdc, was clearly Frank's ideology.
Few that spring to mind in my watching years are Hill, Button Hunt.
Soft British drivers in British teams???? way too many to mention..
