“Choosing the best F1 driver ever between Lewis Hamilton and Michael Schumacher is a schizophrenic choice”

Former F1 team principal Eddie Jordan says it is almost a schizophrenic choice to choose between Michael Schumacher and Lewis Hamilton who is now the greatest of all time.

Last season, Lewis Hamilton managed to match Michael Schumacher’s record of seven world titles and there is a chance that the Briton is on his way to his eighth world title this year. Hamilton already has more F1 victories to his record than Schumacher, but does that also mean he is better than Schumacher?

That is a discussion that will never come to a conclusive answer and Eddie Jordan agrees, but when it comes down to it, he still chooses Hamilton.

“Both are unique, so it makes me almost schizophrenic to have to choose a winner,” he told Germany’s Autobild. “But I choose Hamilton.”

“Lewis never won his titles in a clash like Michael did in Adelaide in 1994,” added the 73-year-old Irishman.

“Lewis’ time at Mercedes was never tainted by rumors of cheating.”

“I still remember how much Michael suffered when Benetton was accused in 1994 of using illegal traction control. And his time at Ferrari didn’t pass completely without someone pointing a finger at the red car. ”

“However, that should not detract from Michael’s performance,” said Eddie Jordan. “Both are just very big in their profession.”

But when it comes to the greatest of all time, Jordan thinks that there is no one who can cope with Ayrton Senna, who unfortunately passed away much too soon.

“Ayrton Senna is out of competition for me,” he said. He was a wizard in every way. He died way too early to be able to evaluate him objectively. ”

“Had he not had an accident at Imola, he would have ended his career with far more than three F1 titles. You can’t prove that, but I’m sure. ”
