Talent + Experience = Quality


Karting amateur
Firstly, apologies to anyone who has read this post already on the Williams thread, and I hope I'm not breaking any rules by posting this twice. I thought the nature of the point was non-team-specific and might warrant a discussion of it's own. The original post is here: Williams

One thing I have quickly learnt in karting is that it takes a lot of talent to beat a lot of experience. Essentially the equation, as I see it, is this:

talent + experience = quality

...or at least "quality" is a function of "talent" and "experience", but let's keep things simple.

Rarely, there is enough talent to negate experience. Likewise, there is rarely enough experience to negate talent. In each F1 driver both of these elements exist, but an exceptionally talented driver can often match a more experienced driver and vice versa making the measure of a driver neither a measure of their talent nor their experience, but a single combined measure of the both.

...and there may lie the answers to all of our versus threads.
