  • Re: McLaren Team Mate not getting engine updates?

    No sign of any comments in the technical section either. Sounds like they may have given up.

    But I doubt if we will ever agree. Seems your perception of a good driver is very different than mine. I see Senna as 1 of the greatest. You already said 5 names that you think are better. I fully disagree on that.

     Of course Senna is one of the greatest. The Benetton car of '93 was ahead of McLaren (they had the latest Ford engine all season, McLaren did not, even Schumacher boasted that their car was faster during the season), yet Senna won 5 races that year and Schumacher 1. 

     It is absolute insanity for anyone to think that Hakkinen or Lauda were better than Senna. Hakkinen had a few seasons where he lost to Coulthard (he was handed his first two career wins by Coulthard, otherwise he'd have been yet to win a race while DC had 5 wins) and was outqualified by Herbert early in his career. Even John Watson beat Lauda (both seasons) when they were teammates at McLaren. They were not on Senna's level, unless John Watson also was LOL.
    My implication isn't that he wasn't great, it's that he's not top 5 material. And with Vettel and Alonso also being better, he already has no place in there.

    Coulthard only beat Hakkinen when 1. Hakkinen had the same rate of engine failures as Vettel (2010) in 1997 when he lost several wins through no fault of his own, and 2. when Hakkinen flat-out gave up after Australia 2001. Outside of that, Hakkinen trounced him, and rightly so. And Coulthard himself was no slouch, and if he had returned to Williams in 2003 and replaced Montoya or Ralf he would've easily won the championship in what was by far the best car that year.

    Regarding Benetton, I'm talking about 1992 where there is no such excuse, and 1993 the rest of the car was miles worse than the McLaren.

    >Even John Watson beat Lauda (both seasons) when they were teammates at McLaren.
    Goes to show how individual seasons say nothing about the overall quality of a driver. In fact, this completely destroys your argument.

    They are doing what they can, as fast as they can... surely?
    They may be but it simply isn't good enough for an official sports game, it's been the same for years
    Which sports? Divegrass (huge company behind FIFA relative to the size of CM, and a sport with a very casual fanbase in general) and American sports (entirely intended for the most casual of audiences, even moreso than football, and only there to squeeze out as much money as humanly possible) should not be seriously considered in any such comparison.
