Remark of the working day

Immediately after Max Verstappen equalled Juan-Manuel Fangio’s earn document, Bernasaurus contemplates the recency bias made by F1’s at any time-increasing calendar:

It is odd to believe Max has now gained a lot more races (24) than his rather-father-in-regulation Piquet with 23. However, Nelson has a few globe championships. This full obtaining nearly two times as quite a few races does skew figures, Fangio gained 5 globe titles, a lot more than Senna, Prost… very well all people aside from Lewis and Michael. But is not in the leading grand prix winners checklist.

I never believe it is a difficulty, Fangio’s achievements are not likely to be overlooked. But an individual new to the activity may suppose Nelson Piquet need to have been rather great at coming 2nd a whole lot.@bernasaurus
