For reference Lewis Hamilton had 37 wins from 109 races before F1.
Did you include the 100 and 200 meters at his school sports day in 1999?
"Marussia, who have clawed their way back from the brink of oblivion, have named Britain's Will Stevens as one of their drivers. However, the governing FIA said that was subject to him holding a super licence."
I find that rather intriguing.
As for his backers - I really don't have a scooby but they were apparently prepared to pay a six figure sum to get him a Friday session in a Caterham last year so they must be loaded!
If thats not true then how come Maldonado and Sutil still had theres?
Max Verstappen and Carlos Sainz Junior would not be allowed to drive if the rules were in place this year.
Having looked at his times for P1 and P2, I think the guy deserves some credit for his work so far. In only his second F1 session he's managed (by my calculations) to get the car within 107 percent of the Mercedes in both sessions which should add weight to any appeal if they have trouble in qualification later and also, trimmed around a second off his best lap between P1 and P2.
All in all, given what a roughly designed, underpowered house brick he's driving, I think that's a pretty impressive days work for a rookie driver.
Stevens has never been slow but he's never been spectacular. He's certainly shown he can hold hid own. I had expected Merhi to beat him and I still do but will watch with interest.
