Michael Schumacher is not only the best race car driver of all time, but he was fully responsible for bringing the Scuderia back to championship form. We obviously praise Michael for his on the track record, but rarely do we realise that Ferrari was a second or third tier team prior to his arrival.
When he arrived at Ferrari he had just won the 1995 championship blowing away Hill in a much faster Williams. Demons of 1994 had truly been laid to rest right there. You Ferrari at that time where not the best team, in fact they were a sorry excuse for an F1 team. Their proud history was being eroded by some of the worst car designs and makes ever- ask Irvine what he first thought.
Schu single handeldly turned this team round and won more races, YES THATS RIGHT, won more races in his first year than Berger and Alesi had done together as a partnership!!!!!
