    Yeah, I'm out of not-water myself. I downed a 2-liter in two days, and I'm trying to conserve money. And Target here doesn't have a generic brand soda.

    @Coffer, I didn't mean that as condescending as it sounded, it's just a concept I'm not good at explaining.

    Far less than anyone else, and he doesn't care about it. That's what I'm getting at.

    It does mean that you have a lot more to do to get back to the top. It took Schumacher 3 years to finally outperform Rosberg, and before his return he had never been beaten by a teammate. Better yet, he'd outmatched Senna in only his first full year of F1.

    In all fairness, maybe I was wrong to fully shove hard work aside. You have a point, although I still believe that it's not a pure necessity, or that it's as effective as most say.

    Public awkwardness general.

    That one always makes me laugh, even though it's not his fault.

    I wouldn't say hard work is completely limited to productivity either.

    I've been drinking way less soda lately, but it's difficult to just stop drinking it altogether.

    He's the most physically unfit driver on the grid. He's lazy and a drunkard, and he sleeps a lot, even before races. He couldn't practice anywhere near as much as the others, not even at a younger age, because of how cold Finland is (which helped him learn how to drive consistently fast while preserving his tyres). He didn't even have a superlicense when he started racing in F1 because he was "unproven".

    And yet he's always been at the top and is one of the greatest drivers of all time. And I'd dare say he's a little underrated, considering he unfairly lost at least two championships. Not only that, but he's just come out of retirement and he's already doing a much better job than the (arguably) greatest driver of all time.
    I don't really think that has anything to do with respect though, you're just saying that this guy got it done without as much hard work as most did. There's still no way Kimi has done no hard work to get where he is, it may be less then the others on the field and he may do just as well thanks to his natural talent but I don't think he deserves more respect than the drivers who are just as good but got there through more hard work. I probably agree that due to his skill he deserves equal respect as other drivers of his caliber, some would argue he deserves less, but I don't see how he would deserve more than those that did work hard and put in more seat time to accomplish their goals.

    Frey doesn't. I have also stopped drinking it for the most part. Maybe I will have a can during a birthday, but I usually drink Arizona green tea now.
