At Hungary with 20minutes to go but his mechanics repaired it in time, seven or eight of them crowding around the front end...the more the hands... VER did say the car was strange before the off and after the repair it performed much better.
It was the race where BOT botched his start watching his dash and not the starting lights, hmm

No. He has won exactly 1 rain affected race. HAM has won the rest in the last 5 years. I would say don't fall for the propaganda but as you are creating the propaganda, I will simply ask you to stop.

But I know you won't!!

But Hamilton has DAS, Party Mode and lap dog BOT......so his wins in the rain donít count as heís cheating!

Also Merc having many years head start to develop their engine so it performs better in the rain

Oki doki then,VER has asked HAM to swap cars with him to make a comparison of how they perform in different machinery,I expect that you would give this your blessing and welcome the chance to back up what you are saying about your driver with this reasonable request

Absolutely. Bring it. Iím certain HAM would do better in the RB than VER in the Merc. This is what it means to be a better driver, and this is what HAM has already proven when driving not so good cars.

That's useless . The situation is between MAX vs HAM and the cars .
All the PU and downforce settings should be remained , just like in QF .
All the team support from behind the pitwall have to be removed . And no one is allowed to touch another remote controlled button in the box !
Then swap cars 33 and 44 and drivers and let them run 10 laps against the clock.
Register and store the lap times in the database , and make the results public in the media !

Only then we would know , who is the best !

But HAM is chicken to lose his market value !
IF HAM would lose , his market value would sink like a brick in the water !

Won't happen !

It's Formula One RACING. Put Max in a car against HAM and HAM will win 8-9 times out of 10 and wins over a season. Max is too volatile and HAM is relentless over a season. The comparison over similar times in their careers says it all. There is now enough data to say that. The 5 years on RBs top car and the results he's garnered, thus far tell the story.

Two Pole Positions. 9 Wins. 9 Fastest Laps. Combining this with his overall performance against RIC, who is ALSO not even HAMs equal tells the story.

Don't run from his record, dear friend. He is the 2nd or 3rd best driver on the grid now. The future needs to unfold and he has lots of mental work to do.

Cheers and lets hope for an epic race.

-MK

You never know my friend, with all his fans thinking he backed out of this if no..then it could still be bad for him in other ways. It's like a Gladiator saying no to a fight with an opponent in the Coliseum from the Roman times

You want a head to head comparison, but don't like using a Merc...then put them both in a Williams or a Renault.
Alternate a set number of laps with new tyres every time.
No touching the car by anyone.
Verstappen in a Merc and Hamilton in a RB and Hamilton would still come ahead...and Verstappen would be crying about something not being fair.

I never said I don't like using a Merc ? ( re-read my post above )
I said : MAX in the Merc-W11 / HAM in the HONDA RB16

That's the challenge and request from MAX .
HAM will avoid every discussion regarding this challenge !

As I said : It won't happen , because HAM is chicken to lose his market value and status/reputation !

Its a dumb ass challenge that will never happen because its stupid.
If nothing else Mercedes would never allow it.
And Verstappen couldn't even beat Ricciardo...how on earth is his going to beat Hamilton.

EDIT: MercedesamgF1 tweeted "Max, just give us a call if you want to test a Mercedes”."
So there you go...its up to Verstappen to put his money where his mouth is.
