    Why The Hell is SCHUMACHER first, if Ayrton lived he would have destroyed Micheal, Ayrton had the real skill. Schumacher will always look up to Ayrton and Even Micheal himself thinks that aryton is the best.

    Ayrton was the best driver who ever lived, Schumacher won more championships, but Senna had to fight for his and (if Alain wasn’t racing) Ayrton would have won 6.

    Schumacher has never had really good rivals… just consider, Senna had to win against Prost in his own team McLaren. Besides there were so many other great drivers til the early 90s… Schumacher instead “had to win” against Baricchello (no major event), who was his great rival? Villeneuve? Hill??? Irvine???????

    Besides, Senna won so many GPs with a machine that actually wasn’t able to compete. And look at Schumi nowadays, its a shame to list him as the best driver ever. Best drivers wouldn’t fall so badly behind.

    It’s rather simple, evaluate the ratios, examine the number of drives of each driver to the performance outcomes, while factoring in the vehicle specifications and rival competitors and team orders. Ayrton Senna shines clearly over the others.

    To pick up upon an error in an earlier post, no I’m sorry you are indeed incorrect, Schumacher did not progress Farrari whilst Senna was alive, rather Schumacher was winnining in an allegedly cheating Beniton car. It is often cited as a plausible contribution towards Sennas death. Senna pushed harder in order to match Schumacher and Benitons illegal car.

    Number One driver of all time: AYRTON SENNA

    Micheal Shumacher was without doubt a great driver and should be in the top 5, but lets not forget that when he drove for ferrari he had a tremendous amount of testing before and mid season. He also had the lions share of testing as opposed to his team mates and the car was very much built around him. He was always the number 1 driver in the team and had the latest updates first and foremost. Also, he never had a great driver as his teammate, unlike Senna who had Alain Prost! So, in my humble opinion I would put MS behind Senna, Fangio and even prost.

    It would be a absurd even if Schumacher was put in second. Not only Senna, but Clark, Fangio were better than he. Who regard Schumacher the best, doesn’t regard F1 as a sport.
