I've never been impressed by Lauda's line of argument, though a lot of other people make it as well.
So if the McLaren becomes by far the "best car" over the next several years, and Vettel jumps to McLaren and wins a WDC there, that will silence his critics? I somehow can't see that happening.
I don't think the concept of "best car" means what it used to in the the days of Lauda and Clark and Senna. Back then the "best car" might have a 100HP on its rivals - today they are all limited to making identical power. Back then the "best car" might be two or three seconds a lap quicker than the others - today Seb qualifies a tenth of sec ahead of Lewis and people go on and on about what a genius Newey is.
