simply put winning the world championship on an inferior car would be like a guy winning a GT supported by a team like argos shimano which would be pretty much impossible as he would be alone after the first mountain each day.
also just to prove how flawed your "the one with the best car always wins" argument is, all first 4 guys of the championship this year (won last sunda by vettel) started their careers on weaker teams before slowly moving up to better teams.
Ofc talent, if recognized, take u to better cars, but it also gives u an unfair advantage. If u are more talented u should win even if u all drove the same cars. And then maybe the more average drivers would win more. If that happened (all driving similar cars) then maybe I would call it a real sport - the F1 is to much about equiptment for my personal taste. Thats also one of the reasons UCI has strict rules about bikes (to make the equipment make less of a difference). But I dot no beef with ppl percieving F1 as a real sport, just dont force-feed that perception to me.
Anyways, sry for the offtopic.
PS: oh and no u cant compare a team strength with a mechnical advantage such as a car. A team consist of human beings that need to work together. A car is a thing, a mashing. Not a human being.
