difficult to argue with that. I would add though, that Schumacher was always no 1 in his team, whereas I think Lewis has lost 2 championships due to his team. 1 when it was clear to all that he needed fresh tyres, the team delayed until his tyres went, giving Ferrari the crown. Co incidence it was after the data stealing issue had come up between McLaren & Ferrari....?No denying Lewis is fantastic. A phonemal driver. But for me, will always be second to Schumacher, purely on the basis that Michael won 2 World titles with Benetton in inferior cars both years to the Williams.
Also, he turned ferrari from mediocre to world beaters. Lewis hasnt done that. Mercedes plans for turbo hybrid from 2014 onwards were going to put them front for years even with a Lance Stroll driving it
The other when Rosberg won. The team had changed his winning pit crew over to Rosberg, and also made errors in pitting which cost Lewis the crown.
