He talks about the up and coming of Mick Schumacher. He should have mentioned George Russell, whose's been racing a while I know .....but in the right car, sooner or later he'll be a F1 champion.

@ralepej Unfortunately unless Jimmy miraculously comes out of retirement and wins against much younger drivers, the records of the McRae family came to a stop, with the helicopter crash that killed Colin, his son,.and his son's friend☹️ I always used to enjoy watching the rallying on Saturday TV during the 80s and 90s.

Also helped that the U.K. built the first purpose-built motor racing track at Brooklands. Some of the banked track can still be seen when you are at Mercedes (the U.K. headquarters).

If America’s going to have an F1 Champion, my best bet right now would be Josef Newgarden. He’s won 2 of the last 4 championships (and just missed out on the 2020 title), and he’s won 23% of the races during that time. Dude is one of the best drivers in the world right now, and I would not be surprised to see a top F1 team try to poach him away from Roger Penske. Especially if Josef wins the Indy 500, I could that happening.

dude, have some respect ! you cant choose the US statistics that fit your narrative. either you use the whole number of drivers and the ratio is terrible, or you use only those who did compete for the championship for a better ratio but then don't come and say the US is one of the 3 largest providers of drivers. it makes no sense!!!

Wait... It was that big of a surprise that Finns have to drive on slippery road to get a drivers license? I would say it's a surprise if someone didn't have to do it, at least if you live in a country that can get cold, like US can too, but can't really say I'm surprised you don't have that in US :)

In 10 years (1981 to 1991), Brazilian drivers conquered 6 WC. (PS: Piquet won the 2 last races of 1990 with a Benetton, Senna won the 4 first races of 1991, Piquet won the 5th race of 1991 with the Benetton). Emmo could achieve 1 or 2 more WC, but instead he chose to leave the McLaren and help his brother in the Brazilian team project - Coopersucar.

Man, your view about Brazil is sooooo wrong. Racing in Brazil starts on 50s when the major auto makers industry arrived to start the industrialization in the country. In that point of time, the races and drivers started to shine especially in races against Uruguay and Argentina. Pls, take out this favelas and people play football in the roads because it has absolutely nothing related with F1. And start to read about F1, we have several drivers and you just missed the 3 times championship of Nelson Piquet, one of most iconic drivers in his F1 time, in your comment....about champions, by the way. Look the videos about piquet x Manuel x Prost x Senna ....

It's easy Germany big coporations in automotive market (mercedes, bmw, vag), Italy- almoast the same, less corpos but more famous (Ferrari, Alfa Romeo, Maseratti), UK-media, the main stream of F1 is sending by media in UK. Its easier to promote your own driver. At start of your career corpos in germany will support their own driver, the same in Italy and very good marketing in UK. Proof? Why Albon was so long in Red Bull even they was able to swap one year erlier him and Gasly (who had better first half of 2019 than Albon 2020)? Because the main owner of Red Bull (the drink not the team) is from Thailand same as Albon. Thats it. Latest F1 champions always had big sponsor or was member of junior program. Proof? Alonso - Santander, Hamilton - McLaren junior, Vettel - BMW junior and Red Bull as sponsor. There will be always easier to find founder form your own country. We are talking about equality by human race, why not by nationality?

Fins are weird people. They’re not too social They’re not loud They’re tall (6ft+) They always sit one apart on public transport. They rarely chat to someone they don’t know. And their roads are amazing. I’m from the UK and the days when I would drive about the back roads of Finland tells me exactly why there are so many amazing Finnish rally drivers and normal drivers.
