On these machines we're all going to go.Again to win the championship, Williams have a lot more money, but I think that if the team is already able to slightly improve in some areas, podiums will be guaranteed.As for Strolla, he is now much better shows itself compared with the beginning of the year, but I think to judge his talent can only be a couple of years.I would say that the best my partner was with Schumacher. He played at the same level, maybe even slightly higher than Lewis.Among the other pilots, I would pick Vettel, and then Verstappen. In this order only because max is not enough experience.As for Alonso, then next year it will be easier, but he will not fight for a title".
