    Schumacher made his debut in 1991 for Jordan, raced once for them then went to Benetton. So he raced against some legends such as Mansell, Prost, Senna etc...
    In fact, Nelson Piquet was one of his first teammates. He won his first race in 1992 - Mansell was champ that year. His form grew in 1993 - Prost was champ that year. His first title came in 1994 - and Senna had claimed three poles in the first three races of the season, failed to finish the first two, and the worst happened while he was leading the third.
    However, it was in the 90s that driver aids began to appear. So, sadly, he never really raced those men in the brutal sort of cars from the mid-80s. You can't really compare Schumacher and the legends before him in their time, nor can you really speculate what they may have done in our era, but there is a sort of transition period, between 1991 and 1994, that indicates that Schumacher could have put up a good fight.
