Senna was way better than Michael, only his luck gave him 7 trophies, before the incident Senna owned Michael.Look at the stats if you don't believe me.
That's nonsense at it's highest peak.
Michael Schumacher finished his second season in Formula 1 in 3rd place, it was 1992. Ayrton Senna, at the time probably the best driver in the world, finished 4th.
In 1993, Senna was 2nd and Schumacher 4th. Not bad at all for a young driver. He wasn't exactly owned, I'd say it was a decent fight.
In 1994, Senna died in the third race of the season. May I remind you that Senna retired from both previous races and Schumacher won both. Michael went on to win 4 races in a row and become a champion.
Senna won twice in his second season in Formula 1.
Schumacher won once in his second season in Formula 1.
They both finished within points in their second race of their life.
By the time Michael Schumacher was 34 (Senna died at 34) he had more win, more championships, more points.
Schumacher won more races in one season, more points in one season.
Schumacher's got better percentage of wins. Schumager's got more podiums.
Schumacher's got more consecutive wins too...
He also owns record for wins on the same grand prix. He owned some even at the age 34. (before the "If Senna hadn't died, things would be different" argument starts)
When Michael Schumacher was already in the game, Senna didn't win a championship. He didn't exactly own anyone at that point, let alone Schumacher.
Before his retirement Schumacher even improved Senna's pole position record, which seemed unreachable a few years before.
You still wanna talk about stats? Don't make me laugh.
It's funny how people grow in the eyes of fans when they die. Nobody considers Alain Prost the best, even though he had better results than Senna. Funny, the one who dies is always "better" than the one who lives through it.
