"Neither Lewis Hamilton or Michael Schumacher are Formula 1's GOAT," Gerhard Berger


Lewis Hamilton equalled Michael Schumacher's record of 91 career victories last weekend and the British is also on course to match Schumacher's record of seven drivers' title at the end of this season. However, not everyone impressed with his success and believes that the greatest ever discussion is only between Hamilton and Schumacher. Former Austrian driver Gerhard Berger gave his view when interviewed by Speedweek.com. Berger is asked who he believes out of the two is the greatest, and he argues that a third name should be deemed the greatest – Ayrton Senna. "For me it's still Ayrton," says Berger. "He died young, but until then he had all the records in his hands. I think Ayrton would have become world champion many more times, and then the statistics would look different. I've seen all three of them up close, with some of them I've raced. He's the best driver I've seen." Berger would have liked the record victories to still remain with the German, saying: "I would have liked Michael to remain the most successful driver in history for a long time, simply because of his fate. It is so tragic that you have to cry almost every time you think about it. "Hamilton is an exceptional driver, he has proven countless times that he deserves this title. This is a battle between two greats that we will be discussing for years to come. They are both at the top, you cannot say who is the best of the two. You can't even know if they both would have performed the same in the same car."
