Let me add a little perspective to this...

VER really kills the avg win's per driver because of his dismal conversion rate.

There is a headline in Autosport Plus stating that VER and his mistakes are the reason RBR is on the back foot and that the only way to beat the HAM-MERC combination is to be perfect.

If it is already good without the warp-speed , it will be outstanding with warp-speed !
No excuses here , just facts . Max requested a challenge to swap cars !
But HAM was chicken ...

Not only MAX was losing , the rest of the 20 drivers are losing by the lack of warp-speed !

HAM wouldn't be perfect in a HAAS of Williams car . He would struggle to keep the crappy car on track .
And to finish on the podium in such a crappy car is like climbing the Mount Everest !

Ask the Russell boy !

Philippe, you are a real racing fan. I expect better of you.

The Autosport is an analysis of the performance, YTD, and VER has cost RBR and himself the lead in the WDC and WCC. These are facts.

Cheers, my friend.

Having worked in startups for the last decade, I've had the bigger wallet to hire and also been the victim when the bigger wallet comes along.

What you are thinking here is inaccurate.

Well my good friend , Here is something better for you !

Race 1 - Bahrain - HAM exceeded 29 times the track limits .
MAX exceeded one time the track limits "AFTER" he overtook HAM .
And HAM got a stolen victory...
A gift from the FIA !

Race 2 - Imola - MAX was unbeatable in the rain ! No one could touch him !
HAM ended up under pressure in the gravel trap , and he crashed in the wall anyway ..
His A$$ was saved by the Red Flag , and his car was repaired under the Red Flag .
Ham's P2 was a gift from the Gods of Luck !

Race 3 - Portugal - HAM vs MAX and Tension in the front , overtaking came from both !
But no one could hold HAM back from the victory , because the W12 dropped warp-speed bombs ...
Portugal was a Merc track and the W12 was a copycat from the RB16-B rear wing and suddenly HAM ran in warp-speed .

That's what I saw in the first 3 races of the '21 season .

I read reports that some key staff were near to break down working at Merc and some were even off sick with stress.

This is an organization of over 3000 people. If even 1% is off for various reasons...that's 30 people and it's not anomalistic.

Actually you're incorrect again. The number at a good firm is 2.5 to 3.0 percent.
