How hard is it to spot a future champion – and how many are there on the grid today?
I haven’t met anybody (and I doubt I ever will) who witnessed the 1990 United States Grand Prix and, at that time, wasn’t feeling absolutely certain Jean Alesi would be a future (multiple) champion. And there was hardly anybody nearly as impressive in his first full season since, maybe Vettel being a sole exception.
However, given the right car and the right team mate, there aren’t many drivers on the grid that couldn’t become a championship winner, if any.

Happy birthday to Louise.1987!
On this day in F1
Giancarlo Baghetti, who sensationally won his debut world championship grand prix, was born 80 years ago today. He never repeated his victory, and sadly succumbed to cancer in 1995.
