I think that we all have to agree that Schumacher is like the great one, Wayne Gertsky. He really is on another level. Everything moves so slow and smooth for him. He rarely makes a mistake and he is exteremly consistent.
If he wasn't in F1 I think there would be a good 6 or so people capable of wining the championship(JPM, KR, FA, JB,MW, RS, DC etc). I dont think that they are a "lower" or subpar level as long as that one guy is not in the equation. So I have to give it to Shuey on the fact that he is just that good. He is great to watch becuae every time he takes the track you are watching history but you are not watching excitement so much.
