I Don't really have evidence because you can't really evidence it but I've watched Vandorne through four formulas and seen him progress and dominate everyone he was in. I've seen him command in the best machinery and I've seen him push awful machinery to places it shouldn't go. I've seen some great speed and performance from Max but I've seen nothing like the consistency of results and performance I've seen from Vandoorne. Max is the more exciting driver but it doesn't mean he is better. Comparing them in F1 is pointless due to the difference in machinery but I think of it like this:
He fully deserves the kicking and Williams have earned one too, because Stroll hasn't improved at all. He's had several private test sessions throughout the season, even on tracks like Austin and Suzuka, yet he was no closer to Massa on those tracks.Oh dear, Lance is getting a kicking on the 5Live coverage because he's slower than Felipe and not improving in the way expected.
I don't think Lance Stroll gets the credit he deserves. He has accomplished a lot. Not many people could have gotten where he is. Do you know how hard it is to be that one sperm that fertilizes the egg?
