When talking about the best racer in Formula One history, the names most often mentioned are Michael Schumacher and Ayrton Senna. There is no doubt about the Irish racer racing with both players. Irvine believes Schumacher is the best racer of all time.
I think Michael is the best of all time. Senna was incredibly talented, but he had some drawbacks. Michael was much more precise, and his sense of detail was remarkable. In some corners, I didn’t know what to do to be as fast as he was while he simply copied my run. He used to check telemetry for hours. I’m a big admirer of Senna, but I think Michael was better. Last but not least, he also beat him on the track.
