    His father owned a karting track so he would could just go around as much as he wanted to hone his skill starting from an early age.

    During his most dominant years at Ferrari, he benefited from having the best possible people to build a team around him. The team itself also had an advantage during the tire war between Bridgestone and Michelin with Ferrari riding on the Bridgestone that had been in F1 longer and also because of a rule at the time that mandated one type of tire construction for all the teams that use that tire instead of allowing them to customize tires for specific teams. While Michelin was trying to satisfy all the their teams, Bridgestone just built their tire to work for the Ferrari and all the other Bridgestone teams just had to deal with running on Ferrari tires. Much of this advantage was gun when the FIA allowed the tire constructors to make custom tires, but Ferrari were still the ones to beat.

    By the 2004 season, the Michelin tire was clearly superior and in 2005 when they banned tire changes, he was only able to finish 3rd in points and much of that had to do with Michelin teams withdrawing from the USGP giving Ferrari and Bridgestone their only win of the season.

      this is what i never liked about Formula One. its a weird culture where people actually worship and sniff the farts of rich privilege people. something that would otherwise not be laudable.

          Nah. Them homies from the Golden Age only needed to survive the war and not be a wrenchlet. Very few drivers, teams, and constructors from the pre-war times would pick it back up again afterward. Essentially this allowed for a new generation racers to start from a level playing field.

        Hate to break it to you but that's EVERY racing discipline now, on a professional level at least.

      This isn't unusual, anon. At least in the US/Canada. 90% of professional motorsports drivers grew up like that. Their dad was a mechanic, spent a lot of time at the tracks, building project cars, driving all the time, fricking around on dirt bikes. That isn't spoiled or privileged because almost everyone he raced against came up like that too.

        Very few drivers had fathers that owned and operated their own racetrack, dummy. Your dad wrenching on dirtbikes means nil against virtually unlimited seat time.

          It doesn't matter if their dad owned the track, they all spent their youth on it. They were part of a motorsports team before they even had a license, almost all pros grew up like that.

            You're grossly undervaluing how important seat time is for driver development. Everybody else has to go home meanwhile Schumacher has track all to himself until it got dark. Remember that his brother Ralf also immensely benefited from this. To this day the Schumachers are the only siblings ever to both win F1 races.

      Michael was the MJ of driving and it’s not even close. The fact he aligned with Ferrari is not luck it’s the best team finding the best talent and dominating.

      The graph here shows a fundamentally superior understanding of driving where most drive like Baricello. It’s a genetic gift of superior balance and reflex.

          Do you think it is a winning move to start sharing pictures of drivers on a podium to own Michael?
          Because I don't think Michael loses this game.

            Being a bad loser is what made Schumacher a 7 time World Champion. You wouldn't get it.

            Unlike you, I watched formula in 1998.
            And unlike you, most of michael jacksons driving 'skills' was how dangerously he blocked faster hakkinen on corners

            That's true I never blocked Mika Hakkinen on any corners.

        before schumi and co joined, ferrari was a rubbish team that hadn't won a championship in over a decade and by the time they won their first championship together, it was 16 years since they won the last one
        also hakkinen was quicker than schumi

    He was the first generation of "produced" drivers - meaning he was specifically trained from a young age for the role of formula one racing driver.

      This explains why he lost to Edwards on that tight course then.

        in a piece of shit car that has an incredibly low skill ceiling
        as Eddie explains, if the car were at all difficult to drive Michael would have killed him
