well, really don't have any background regarding senna....but as for michael, he basically was in a package --- with ross brawn, jean todt and other personalities which he dragged with him to ferrari from benetton. senna, on the other hand is on his own from his team changes.

I voted for Michael. We don't know what would happen if Senna wouldn't die.
Their fights on the track would be awsome.

michael can never be considered the greatest because he cheated at monaco. he can be considered the best or maybe the fastest but not the greatest. senna is the greatest because of his personality off track

The greatest one might be Senna, but you simply can't ignore the fact that Michael was still evolving as a race driver in those times and he would have become a much more feared opponent. For the fact that he is the one who brought Ferrari on top form, I voted for him.

I choose Schumacher because Ayrton Senna was the top driver before I go interested in F1 and so I didn't know much about his achievements for awhile. Schumacher is the Senna of yesterday, the amount of commitment he showed was unbeliveable, even if the race wins did get abit repeative sometimes. :toot:

I'm going with Senna, because he was not a driver, he was THE driver.

Every time he stepped into his car you knew he was going to bring you an amazing show. His death didn't make him forgotten, but made him the truly legend he is today.

and its obvious that most of the voting will be biased anyway... :)




The question is Who is the bet DRIVER. No who has got the most stats.
Look at pure driving ability and make a judgment, not by looking at a stats book!

Monaco was not the first time he broke rules!!!

There were to many to count.

To be the best ever means to have aways compeated fairly an within the rules.

has to be senna. no one could touch him when he was at his best and he would have surely added to his 3 world titles had he not passed away
