To be fair, I won't dispute Vettel's experience advantage (which is clear), but my position is more about the raw talent. All things being equal, Leclerc has been more likely to take a win for Ferrari than Vettel this season (Canada controversy not withstanding). He has to refine his skills and use Vettel's experience, but his raw pace is, to me, quicker than Vettel's.It easy to crack the s**ts over Renault with Ricciardo's strategy, but it was a gamble. Nobody knew for certain what was the best strategy to take.
I said "no" in an earlier post, and now I'll try elaborate as you asked.
Leclerc having a spell of form over Vettel in the situation they're currently in (Ferrari being clearly 2nd best to MB) doesn't mean much imo.
Leclerc doesn't have any experience to draw off, and Vettel has heaps. There would be situations where Vettel probably couldn't give a s**t (It's not the first time a team mate has got the better of Vettel, but he's always reestablished himself later on).
A couple of races ago at Hockenheim, Leclerc ended up in the wall while Vettel charged his way through the field. So what do you make of that?
Tottenham beat Man City in the CL 1/4 final last season. It doesn't mean Tottenham is better than Man City, doesn't it?
