He never won an F1 World Championship, or an Indy 500, but you could make a strong case that he was the greatest race car driver this country ever produced, Dan Gurney passes away at 86: https://speedsport.com/road-racing/other-road-racing/racing-legend-dan-gurney-dies-86/

Yes it could. Yesterday in Austria it all came unglued for Mercedes as both cars dropped out, Max Verstappen got the win with Red Bull and the Ferrari's came in 2nd and 3rd. So, after 9 races with 12 to go, the standings look like this. (The first six are the only ones with a realistic chance of doing anything.)

1 Sebastian Vettel GER Ferrari 146 pts.

2 Lewis Hamilton GBR Mercedes 145 pts.

3 Kimi Raikkonen FIN Ferrari 101 pts.

4 Daniel Ricciardo AUS Red Bull Racing TAG Heuer 96 pts.

5 Max Verstappen NED Red Bull Racing TAG Heuer 93 pts.

6 Valtteri Bottas FIN Mercedes 92 pts.
