Max seems to have taken the message from Jos about over driving the car at the beginning of the season, so hopefully Jos, Helmut and Lewis will have driven the point home about who has the most to lose in this type of situation.
If he can't then he is as "thick as a brick".

I would love to see a list of traits for Senna and Schumacher first (could we even agree on that list?) so we can pick which ones we think apply to Max... or anyone else. Do they have to be positive traits, or can we pick from the entire list?

Ricciardo? I don't think so, RB don't even want him, he's forced to go to a mid field team. Even at Abu Dhabi after Max fell back to 10th, he still finishes ahead of Ricciardo. Neither Merc or Ferrari wanted Dan either, though it's unknown how much that decision may come from their #1 drivers.


Ricciardo is a good driver and one of the current best at passing (maybe the best) but overall race-pace, he can't quite match Max, and he definitely can't match him in quali.

Ricciardo had a contract offer from Red Bull. Hardly 'not wanting' him.

I disagree. Unless Redbull really hit the nail on the head and create a dominant car.

Lewis is on another level in terms of all round performance, consistency and professionalism at that level. At the moment, all of the other drivers dip into his domain for a race or two at a time but nobody is there with him for the whole season. It's going to take a lot of work/luck for Max to get there, and by the time he does I think Lewis might be sitting on a yacht with Rhianna.

no, I'm not a Lewis fanboy before you start.

A couple of laps from the end of the race and Verstappen's visor is covered in oil from the expiring engine that he will be using next year. I wonder if his contract has a get out clause?
