2021.09.22 06:31 AtolaniO Stuck In No Man's Land - The Second Drivers
| Although they have both proven not to be Championship Calibre drivers, it would be foolish to dismiss the evident talent that both Sergio Perez and Valtteri Bottas possess. Bottas' impressive performance at Imola just last week was a kind reminder to everyone of the ability he has and you only have to look at the Sakhir Grand Prix at the end of the 2020 season to remind yourself why Checo was known as the King of the Midfield, and was driver of the year in the opinion of many last year.|
However, I genuinely believe this current F1 grid is the best we have been blessed with since the famous 2012 Grid that featured 6 world champions at the time - Schumacher, Alonso, Raikkonen, Hamilton, Button and Vettel (in chronological order) - with Rosberg going on to become the 7th, 7 different race winners in the first 7 races and promising young talents such as Ricciardo, Hulkenberg and Grosjean.
2012 F1 Grid
As a result of the top end of the grid being jammed full of elite talent, Checo and Porridge Man are no longer amongst the most sought after drivers in the paddock. As I've thought about it more and more, I think it is quite possible that Bottas and Perez are no longer in the top 10 and most definitely not in the top 5 drivers on the grid, despite being at the two top teams. It sounds crazy at first but once you start naming the drivers that are arguably outperforming them on a consistent basis relative to their respective machinery, it doesn't sound quite so far fetched.
It goes without saying that Lewis and Max are the creme de la creme and rank 1A and 1B in terms of talent, consistency or however you want to judge them. I would then argue that in no specific order, Ricciardo - despite how long it took him to adapt, we have seen since the summer break that he is still very much as talented as ever -, Norris, Russell, Leclerc, Sainz, Alonso and Gasly. That is nine drivers that in current form, would most likely outperform Checo and Bottas. Vettel on his day would typically outperform them, but considering he only has 5 points finishes in 14 races (including the disqualification), he has lacked consistency. An argument could also be made for Esteban Ocon and I'd rank this quartet as 10th to 13th on the grid, above (in no order) Stroll, Mick Schumacher, Latifi, Mazepin, Kimi - consistency again, could argue for him to be higher -, Giovinazzi and Tsunoda.
2021 F1 Driver Lineups
To conclude, I think we are truly spoilt with how talented the top end of the grid is as strong arguments can be made for Verstappen, Sainz, Leclerc, Norris and Russell all being future World Champions, albeit with Sainz as the least likely of the group due to circumstance. Gasly and Ricciardo are also championship calibre drivers but again are unlikely to have the opportunity. With Bottas and Perez's slowly but surely winding down as they are both now in their early 30s, it is important that we look back with respect at two immensely talented drivers that have pulled off a number of marquee performances, despite the fact they were never able to truly challenge their generational teammates. This article is not a direct attempt to discredit either of the two or suggest they aren't deserving of the opportunities that they have received, but instead to highlight just how lucky we are as fans to have such a talented grid, especially with the young talent - who are now ready to seize the moment.
This is my first Reddit post so I'm still learning how this all works but would appreciate any thoughts, interaction or feedback in the comments or u/atolanio on socials. Hoping to make more posts that go into more detail in the near future, either in blog form or in front of a camera!

2021.09.22 06:31 Kalamozoo Seedling/sprouting questions!
I’m getting started on my 2nd grow and first time ever growing from seed. I germinated the seeds in distilled ph’d water and within 24 hours, I had taproots on all 6 seeds. I prewatered the soil lightly (2 cups per 5 gallon pot) planted them about 1/2 inch deep and closed up my tent and left them in darkness.
My questions are, should I turn my light on when the seed haven’t broken soil yet?
Also, my humidity inside my tent is 95% and I was worried that’s way too high and put a dehumidifier in there to bring it down to 65%.
I’m using FFOF soil and 6 auto seeds in 5 gallon fabric pots.
