theres no doubt that hes a damn good driver, the guys got lots of talent, but when you compare him to other professional drivers, he really is nothing special at all. he found a way to make a living driving awesome cars without having to actually prove himself in competition, nothing wrong with that i guess.
just watching him drive though its like he's extremely comfortable doing massive drifts, but not comfortable when it comes to actually driving the car in the way it needs to be fast. may sound silly to say its harder to control a car thats sliding around less, but it is. controlling a car within that extremely fine line of optimal slip angle is much harder than controling a car in a big ass drift, and sketchier, it just doesnt look as cool.
