Suppose you have a free run to sign whichever Formula 1 driver you want. Who would you choose?
Lewis Hamilton stands out, a triple world champion and unquestionably among the all-time greats. Fernando Alonso, too, for all his light has been hidden under a McLaren-Honda bushel of late. Sebastian Vettel is another obvious choice. But the name that should really stand out is Daniel Ricciardo.
Why? After all, he has only got three grand prix victories to his name, and when Red Bull won a race this year, it was Max Verstappen delivering the goods. And didn't Daniil Kvyat outscore him last season in identical machinery? Plenty for the Ricciardo doubters to hang their doubting hats on there.
