    Well, the chance of me being an F1 driver is highly improbable and therefore unrealistic. I don't deem that BS.

    Thanks for your input though.. :rolleyes:

    Is that the only reason? I'm considering a career in Law but I was hoping you'd tell me the work is actually pretty engaging.

    You're joking right? Hamilton's dad had to work numerous jobs just to give Lewis the chance to become a professional. That level of natural talent is incredibly rare and is not a simple matter of hard work.

    Yes there is likely someone else 'doing it', but they will be a young child from a wealthy background and an immense natural talent.

    That was a joke.
    But yeah law is pretty satisfying I imagine, also depending on the law you plan to do. I imagine doing things likes pro bono and general public law, criminal law etc would be more satisfying than doing family law or financial law for a firm.

    In my opinion, generally the latter is more rewarding financial, but less rewarding with the 'good feeling'.
