This brings another question. Was Schumacher really so talented? I mean he had Ross Brawn on his side...
He dominated in the rain, plus he didn´t sit in the best car until 2001.
Williams and McLaren were the best cars in the 90´s and still Schumacher took it to them and eventuelly managed to beat them. No other driver apart from Senna could have done that.
Don´t think too much of the 2002-2004 era, where he had the best car, you must judge Schumacher on his performances from the 90´s and the 2000 season. Guys like Button or Raikkönen are brilliant, no doubt about that, but they need a special car to win things, guys like Senna or Schumacher could win in the 3rd best car.
And to answer your question: Yes he was THAT good!
