Better than Schumacher
With regard to the question posed by John Gulliver in Octane 170, in my opinion, no, Michael Schumacher was not the greatest driver. My top three would be Jim Clark, Gilles Villeneuve and Ayrton Senna.
And those of us who saw all of Schumacher’s races because we were actually there have no amnesia, little or otherwise, thanks, about the streak of ruthlessness he betrayed on several occasions – notably against Damon Hill, Jacques Villeneuve and Rubens Barrichello – nor his demand that no team-mate should be allowed to challenge him.
Video doesn’t tell you everything. Talking directly to people at the centre of F1 is often much more illuminating.
