Michael Schumacher did not have the best car in the Ferrari when he joined the team it wasn't even a top five car! That is the point I was making in my previous comment in showing his superb car setup skills. The Bennetton wasn't a particularly great car when he joined that team but he turned that into a championship winning car much like the Ferrari afterwards. There are not many people who can do that. Everyone said the Williams was the best car when Damon Hill won the championship, of which I won't disagree but it was Ayrton Senna that provided most of the information to set that up and Damon Hill almost lost the championship to a rookie. To have the best car means that you have to have a skilful driver setting it up.
