I think the answer is easy. I would explain that F1 is two simultaneous and overlapping competition. As we all know there is both the constructor and driver championships. One impacts the other. Dont think of F1 as a single competition.

As to the spirit of the question, right now tip to tail there is too much performance differences for the best driver to win in the worst car. But along those lines, I also dont think the worst driver in the best car would beat all others either. But I think we all agree the cars are the primary factor at the moment (not taking away the awesome skills of a few at the top like Hamilton)

As others stated, the better cars tend to have the better (at least proven) drivers. And of course there are few absolutes. We can probably find a few exceptions to the above assertions.

What was it and who was it said that Mansell's 92 Williams was so superior even a monkey could get in it and still win?

A tad OTT but when a car is at times 2sec a lap faster than the field (see also 2002, 2004 Ferraris) even a tail end F1 driver is going to be in the hunt in such equipment.

It is pretty simple. The teams will try and build the best car and let the drivers do the job. Really if a team really wants a constructor title it will hire the two best drivers available. The drivers title is just as important to the teams in my view and so would need to be careful to make sure the two drivers donít take points off each other. But the driversí title means more to the public no doubt

Of course weíve got this situation atm where one team is a step ahead of the rest in terms of performance. We just have to hope this domination doesnít last. Itís hard for any driver to win in a mediocre car, but thatís always been the case, even back to the good old days. And even in the best car, the first person to beat is your team mate.

It also depends how close the competition is, as itís a lot easier for a driver to make a difference if the field is pretty much evenly matched, which is certainly not the case atm. But the cream always rises to the top no matter what, hence why you see top teams with top drivers. Hence why you have Bottas alongside Hamilton at Merc. And of course the big teams can pay more if they really need a top class driver and that has been the case for a long time.

Anyway thatís my 2 cents FWIW
