Fact is that Schumacher was always slow in Hungary, this year included. It was also proven that Schumachers race in -98 wasn´t that fast either.
Villeneuve and Ralf? was actually faster considering their equipment. Schumachers so called fast stint also included an spin which
costed him 5-10 seconds IIRC. ie it wasn´t so fast..
France -04, sorry but Im not impressed when 1 driver on the grid has a car like a RedBull 2010 while the others have STR on worse tires.
Brazil 2006 was the result of having the fastest car / tire combo. Massa was 1 second quicker than Alonso in qualifying and he was cruising
in the race. He even let MS past to unlap himself during one stage.
Eddie Irvine wasn´t among the best drivers and he became a winner in -99 when MS was absent. He was also outraced by Mika Salo
in Germany. Yes, by Mika Salo.
Hungary 98, Schumacher had to make up 20 seconds in 20 laps - approximately - even with the slide wide at the final corner, he still came out 3-4 secs ahead of the McLarens, granted DC was held behind Hakkinen for 2-3 laps, but even so... if you fail to appreciate that stint, then I wonder what does impress you?
MS sat behind FA in the Renault (not a STR by any stretch in 2004 - to suggest so indicates complete flamebaiting), again, they tried a strategy switch, could MS make up a stop in 15-20 laps.... yes, and he won. Hardly unimpressive even if the Ferrari did have a large advantage that season... after all, where was RB in this? Battling Trulli for 3rd... brilliant!
Brazil 06, yes of course he had the quickest car, but he still made up a minute on drivers such as JB, FA & Raikkonen..... none of whom were cruising!
Irvine got outdriven by Salo - cherry pick 1 race out of the 7 or so Salo drove that season.... and whilst Salo was far from top class, he was hardly Ricardo Rosset! Irvine by his own admission was a class below the top guys, but he got 4 wins - mainly through McLaren unreliability - nobody honestly believes MS wouldn't have been a better contender in 99 but for his crash in GB.
You can make your opinions but what you provided was just that, an opinion. Don't see real hard evidence for MS just being a good driver, but nothing special in the 1st part of his career though.
