What say ye now, Jacques?

Here's a great article found over at F1 Fanatic, comparing Lewis Hamilton's amazing first season run to the 1996 Formula 1 debut of Jacques Villeneuve. Former World Driving Champion Villeneueve, many of you will remember, was most recently seen pooh-poohing Hamilton's success as "luck." Yet when you compare the two side-by-side for the first seven rounds, it reads a little like this:

Hamilton - seven races, seven podiums, two poles, two wins.
Villeneuve - seven races, four podiums, one pole, one win, two DNFs.
