Michael Schumacher: In One Word
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jMQH43dKnZU

A nice little feature here on the official F1 U to the Tube channel, which seems to me a quite nice idea for a thread.

Describe whichever F1 drivers you wish to in one word.


Let's get this started then...

Michael Schumacher: Transcendent.

Michael was transcendent for how he raised the bar and went above and beyond the call of duty of the expected practices of his time, particularly in preparation. This allied with exceptional talent and ample opportunity led to supreme dominance.

I'll take the easiest one, before somebody else does.

Räikkönen: Kimi. :)

Well Jackie Stewart once called him a precious little ballerina, or something similar to that.

Prost: (le) professeur...

I just took part of a quiz, in which one of the questions was whether it was true or false that Prost got that nickname for his on-track antics. I answered 'true' because that was his nickname, but he got it before he actually raced.

I can't look it up now, as my book on Prost has gone temporarily AWOL, but as I recall he got the nickname at the racing school he went to. After a while, he was showing the instructors how things could be done better/faster.

I read that the school ran a scholarship system and ran a 2 day test to see which driver they would back, half the drivers ran the first day the other half ran the second day.

Prost was selected for the first day but turned up late claiming that his car had broke down, however he just made that up, he just wanted to watch the process I guess gambling that they would let him run on the second day and then he would be better prepared, which they did, crafty.

He also wrote in his own book that throughout his time at the school, whenever he discovered a faster line or a better braking point or anything else he wouldn't use it right away. He saved all that information for his final evaluation, and the other students were shocked when he was suddenly over a second faster than before, easily putting him clear of the rest.

That sort of trick wouldn't work any more with data sharing, of course...

Alonso : Relentless

Hamilton : Slacker (You might disagree with me here, but I've always felt he isn't the hardest worker, and rides based on only his natural talent, which might be second to none. Recent comments by Rosberg only solidified this belief I had since ages)

Here's my best serious effort at actually describing each one as a driver in one word:

Hamilton: Great
Bottas: Wingman
Vettel: Emotional
Leclerc: Upcoming
Verstappen: Bully
Gasly: Unknown
Ricciardo: Overtaker
Hulkenberg: Underachiever
Sainz: Apprentice (to Alonso)
Norris: Potential
Grosjean: Inconsistent
Magnussen: Dangerous
Perez: Underrated
Stroll: Money
Raikkonen: Unique
Giovinazzi: Crasher
Russel: Quick
Kubica: Inspirational
Kvyat: Washout
Albon: Decent

No, JN23 asked where were these comments from and I provided the link. I didn't link to something degrading for Hamilton out of context. So no, get over it please and do not derail this thread.

In a topic which is absolutely not likely to provoke serious debate, the last thing we need is anyone jumping to the animated defense of a driver, whether that be from a member with a reputation for doing so or not.

That isn't to say we wouldn't allow debate, just that the first conversation really doesn't have to be "why does everyone have it in for the flawless Saint Lewis".
