The greatest Formula 1 drivers of all time

Michael Schumacher is widely regarded as the greatest Formula 1 driver of all time, with seven World Championship titles to his name. He made his debut in 1991 and quickly established himself as a force to be reckoned with, winning his first title with Benetton in 1994. He then moved to Ferrari in 1996 and went on to enjoy unprecedented success with the team, winning five consecutive titles between 2000 and 2004. Schumacher retired from Formula 1 in 2006 but made a brief comeback with Mercedes in 2010 before finally retiring for good in 2012.

Other drivers considered among the greatest include Ayrton Senna, who won three World Championship titles; Juan Manuel Fangio, who won five titles; and Lewis Hamilton, who has won seven titles.
