Really Kimi, Lewis, and Fernando are the only ones in the current field that broke through when there was more than one manufacturer with a real shot at the title. Before and after those years, team/car dominance rules the titles.
    Kimi's debut in F1 was scintillating and super impressive, but to label him as "the fastest natural talent that will ever drive in F1" given how he has been pasted by his teammates such as Alonso and Vettel is, frankly, laughable.; hence, why I laughed very hard at Mia's comment.

    He was the fastest driver in the paddock in his first years. But everyone gets slower with age, he hasn't been the fastest for at least the last 10 years now.

    A lot of drivers have been the fastest of the grid when they arrived.
    Schumacher was the fastest driver for some years, alonso also, hamilton also, verstappen is probably the fastest right now.

    Times change, drivers change and nobody can tell who is the absolute fastest ever.
