Other important thing diamondlights1977, one thing is be more "successful" and other thing is who was the greatest ever. It seems so difficult but there are some key indicators that Michael Schumacher does not complain to be the best:
1-Winning with very inferior car 2-Beat their pole time in a race 3-Beat the record of a circuit in his first 21 laps in one F1. 4-Be a fair driver.
Michale Schumacher *never* beat one time in one race. Or wining with a worse car one race, or was a fair driver, or beat the pole position record in less than 10 years [he took 16 to set the new record] Well, only 4 pilots beats the his pole position time in race more than one time in a row: Fangio [ 8 times], Clark [4 times], Rindt [4 times] and Ayrton Senna [6 times]. Senna wins with inferior cars more than 10 races and was a fair and clean driver. The reason, beacuse Senna is a hero [the hero of Lewis Hamilton] is because is was a complete champion.
