Through personal finance connections he jumped the queue ahead of far more talented but underfunded drivers in karting and Formula Ford in Australia to sneak into F1 despite no results whatsoever in anything ever prior to F1 -- then he took 9 years and 130 GP to win a race - the longest of ALL 105 winning drivers in history - in fact longer than the entire career lengths of 760 of the 800 F1 drivers ever - and even then only by being given the best car - which he has now had for a massive 4 years - 60 GP - arguably more opportunity than any driver in history bar Schumacher's Ferraris (and Vettel with the same RBRs) - yet he squandered such unparalleled privilege - rising only to 33rd on the list of total wins - winning only 9 races in over 200 GP - a strike rate of just 4.5% - a dismal 5 to 10 times lower than the greats: Fangio (47%), Clark (35%), Schumacher (29%), Stewart (27%), Prost (25%), Senna (25%).
