Berger reveals who his GOAT of Formula 1 is

Ever since Lewis Hamilton matched the record of the most victories, discussions have been raging about who is the best F1 driver of all time. With 91 victories, he is now on par with Michael Schumacher. But not everyone just looks at the statistics: Gerhard Berger has a completely different opinion about who is the best ever.

In an interview with Speedweek.com , Berger was asked which of the two he thinks is the best of all time: Michael Schumacher or Lewis Hamilton? His answer: Ayrton Senna

"For me it's still Ayrton," said Berger. "He died young, but until then he had all the records in his hands. I think Ayrton would have become world champion many more times, and then the statistics would look different. I've seen all three of them up close, with some of them I've raced. He's the best driver I've seen."

Still, Berger would have liked the record number of victories to have remained in Schumacher's name. "I would have liked Michael to remain the most successful driver in history for a long time, simply because of his fate. It is so tragic that you have to cry almost every time you think about it," Berger said.

"Hamilton is an exceptional driver, he has proven countless times that he deserves this title. This is a battle between two greats that we will be discussing for years to come. They are both at the top, you can't say who is the best of the two. You can't even know if they both would have performed the same in the same car."
