Rich, I agree you can only compare drivers when they have the same equipment. However, in my view that does not mean you can prognosticate that JEV would have handled being in a front end contender team as well as DR has done this last year. The only way that can be known is by putting him in such a drive, which I agree he deserves.

Rich, I accept your explanation, and perhaps my original comment went too far. I did say I agreed with your original comment on this thread re JEV. I myself have said that JEV and DR were very closely matched when they drove together. I have also said that JEV seems to be very unlucky when you consider what has happened in DRs career since. Everything Taipan has said above is absolutely correct. However, the fact is that since Red Bull made their choice to promote DR, he has shown he can handle the pressure of the front end of the F1 field, keep his cool, and win Grands Prix, whereas for JEV that remains an unknown. There must have been something about JEV that led to him being twice passed over. What a driver brings to a team is presumably best assessed and understood by the team, rather than we key board warriors. I expect that DK will be a formidable challenge for DR this year and DR may feel more pressure than he did last year because now there are greater team expectations.
