Earlier this year, four researchers from Great Britain published a study that has been the topic of uncountable arguments and speculation for decades:
Who is the greatest Formula One driver of all time?
Maybe you re a fan of Kimi Räikkönen, Sebastian Vettel, or Lewis Hamilton, or maybe you still hold fast to the memory of Michael Schumacher, Ayrton Senna, or Phil Hill.
How They Did It
Several attempts have been made over the years to quantify results and rank drivers across the history of the series, but each of these attempts has looked at different factors to normalize and assign values to individual race wins.
Sorry Schumi, but it looks like you might have had a tougher career if you didn t race for Ferrari all those years.
So as you consider these results, bear in mind that there are still factors that could be brought into any discussion of relative greatness.
From 2010 to 2012, Schumacher managed only one podium finish, a third place showing at the 2012 European Grand Prix.
