It was one of the pilot’s last interviews before his death. The three-time world champion died on May 1, 1994. At the time, while Ayrton Senna was celebrating his third championship, Schumacher was still a newcomer to Formula 1.

Schumacher was already called a “star” within Formula 1

Even so, the Brazilian already had some opinions about the German. Senna believed that the German driver was not viewed favorably within Formula 1 and was already called a “star” by some people.

— I think Schumacher, like so many other young people, has a thirst to win, but perhaps he doesn’t have enough structure to manage success so soon. He is competitive and is having success. But this lack of structure ends up bringing a series of undesirable situations… in relationships with people, man! It’s not just me. This has been a constant for him. Schumacher is not seen in the most friendly light within Formula 1. He is seen as very much a star. The guy has won two major prizes in his life to date, nothing more, and he thinks he’s a world champion, something like that… — said Ayrton Senna.

To go backAdvance

It is worth remembering that the comparison between Senna and Schumacher can be unfair, when only analyzing the numbers. Because it is not known how many titles the Brazilian could have won if he had not had a fatal accident.

The same can be said for Michael Schumacher, who had an accident in 2013, and lives in a vegetative state, never returning to the track. Therefore, this is a question that will remain unanswered, as it is a comparison between different drivers and rivals, who raced in different eras.

Ayrton Senna competed in 161 races. He won three titles, in 1988, 1990 and 1991. He was runner-up in 1989. He won 41 times, was on the podium 80 times and had 65 pole positions. Considering just Michael Schumacher’s first 161 races, the German scored 53 victories.

He also won 43 pole positions, four titles and two runners-up (one of which was revoked in 1997). The greatest champion in the history of Formula 1, Schumi won 7 titles in the main motorsport category (1994, 1995, 2000, 2001, 2002, 2003 and 2004), as did the British Lewis Hamilton.
