But the fact is, he's never been in an inferior car, like Shumacher's Benneton, or Alonso's Ferrari, or Vettel's Ferrari. Those drivers all performed way beyond the capabilities of the hardware.
His 2008 championship was not done in the best car, McLaren won 6 out of 18 races. Ferrari had the most wins that year.

Many criticized his move to Mercedes. They thought he was making the biggest mistake of his career.
