He is not wrong. By todays standards, Senna would have to visit the stewards at least in half the races he had to defend a position.

You are reaching hopelessly.
People will always reach for examples from Senna and MS because they were the ones constantly at the front, constantly on camera. Nobody remembers when an also ran drove like that.
There is a decent catalogue of this sort of driving from Vettel if you were so inclined to look. Monza 2012 for instance.
All drivers cross the line from time to time that is the nature of sport. I'm not attacking Vettel, I'm being realistic about Senna.


For me i was really impressed how ballsy he drove and how he stayed on the outside line without chopping.

Ah yes, and for your example you use the driver, who made his F1 debut before Senna had even clinched his third world championship.
