    Exactly. It might be even more important today.

    ...and a race is a large amount of seat time. Drivers debrief on the race w engineers. The perfect example is how badly Merc has struggled with tires and how they are figuring it out. If engineers didn't need drivers than they surely would have avoided those issues day 1. Or look at how the teams are always tweaking the car during practice leading up to Qualy and the race. It's largely based on driver feedback.

    Not to mention the benefit of all the simulator work.

    As for Schumacher's testing abilities: he was great at driving constantly for long periods of time. Once they cut down on testing days his input became less important and useful as evidenced how MB did not develop for the longest time

    Name one man in F1's record books who has more consistency or more fast laps to win pole? Or more wins from pole (Hint, there isn't one)
    1. Lewis passed Michael Schumacher record today, earning points in 30 races in a row?
    2. Lewis beat Schumacher record of 68 poles (Lewis = 74).
    3. Lewis beats Michael Schumacher’s record with 41 wins from pole.
    4. Michael Schumacher is the gold standard at F-chat, yet Lewis sucks. LOL

    Silverstone 2008?
    1994 Benetton - stuck in 5th and made a pitstop to change tyres? With no traction control???
    Hmm, well there was the parking the car in Monaco qualifying incidents, and couple of incidents of driving into other cars to win (or attempt to win) a world championship. One of which was considered so serious it resulted in losing all points for the year.
    Schumacher 2000 - 2004. Personal tyres and patsy teammates too.

    Nope, Elton drove well at silverstone but basicly Mclaren hit the jackpot with the rain settings, it was more due to that than anything else, still it was by far Elton's finest hour...but nothing that much special, not when you think of driver like Michael's in spain 96 or others at Spa, or Alesi's at spain 92 or japan 95, or Prost at mexico 1990, or Mansell at Hungaroring 1989 or Silverstone (almost every year)....no, not even close...

    Sorry, don't know ehat your talking about, in 94, Michael did 5 races less than Damon , everything was done to favour the brit and stll they failed miserably...the plank story at spa was just ridiculous, as was suspending him for a ouple of races over a decision his team made, not him....under normal circunstances he would have won that championship 3 races before the end!

    Still don't see where he was lying to try and frame another driver...

    No, during that period there where times of decent oposition, 2000 the Mclaren was pretty decent car, 2003 both Mclaren and willimas had competitive cars....Merc has held an enourmous advantage for 4 straigh years in a row....

    Elton is still a tool, he could win a hundred championships with Mercedes, they’ll all mean nothing about him, they are all about the car

    So he doesn’t drive for Ferrari , undoubtedly he has had superior equipment and cars , especially the last 5 years , but rarely sets a foot wrong . In order to finish first , first you have to finish and , like it or not , he does not make that many mistakes .
    The stats do not lie , there have been other drivers in dominant cars over the years and Lewis is one of the best. There is no such thing as GOAT but , one has to give credit where credit is due and he is very good , the continuous bashing has gotten beyond boring

    The record speaks for itself. His consistency week in and week out in qualifying and on race day is superior. He rarely makes costly mistakes and his impressive points gap over Bottles shows the impact of the driver and not just the superior car. As is typical at this time of the year, he is able to turn his racecraft up a notch during the European leg and really put pressure on his competitors.

    Which is why Rosberg has won 4 titles and Bottas is on his second. Yup. Makes perfect sense.

    Nico only won one because the team prevented him form competing against Elton the years before..it's as simple as that...

    Wow, Lewis won in a two-car championship against Nico 2-1 And against a Butler 2-0. Let's take a bow for the greatest achievement in human history

    taking a side step away from him having a competitive car, you look at his history over 11 seasons 2007 - 2018, he has lost to a teammate once. Once. The same can be said about Vettel. And Alonso. These drivers still have to beat the guy on the other side of the garage with equal equipment and time and time again these drivers (in this era at least) have beaten their teammate over a long season. I think that is impressive.
