If motor racing had a world ranking system, I don't think Ericsson would be any higher than Palmer – and probably a little below. (Palmer, being the better professional in my opinion, is less error prone with a correspondingly higher degree of awareness). It's just that in the UK, Palmer is more under the spotlight than Ericsson. However, it really is a moot point: in my opinion, neither are good enough in terms of outright pace. As for Stroll, if I were a Team Principal, I'd give him a bit longer to prove himself – at least the remainder of this season – but I doubt he'll ever set the world alight.
