Senna is not popular around these parts either. So that argument will not mean much.
Come on man. Let it go
I am probably too young/inexperienced for my opinion to mean much in this thread, but I was watching Japan 2005 earlier this evening and Kimi's drive was outstanding. Not saying it was the greatest, but one of the best I have observed in my lifetime.
I sincerely don't know if you saw those races or not, but yes, some of the best driving that i've seen over more than a decade and half of watching GP racing, it came from one man. Heck, no one in the press conference believed it when Schumacher revealed that he was driving with mostly two gears for more than half of the race. Benetton showed telemetry to the assimilated press, who still couldn't bring themselves to believe it. It was JV who said "made us look like amateurs." I think i should be able to ask this question. It is not unfair to ask him/ her what makes something/ someone great or not. Surely there must be a reason to suggest why a drive is not great, apart from the fact that it was Schumacher who accomplished what he did.
Mate, i also spoke of Fangio... I mentioned Senna as well, because he's cited as greatest ever by a fair few here. I think it was fair. Sorry, can't help you there.
edit: i have always spoken highly of Raikkonen's drive at Suzuka in 2005 and how he overtook Fisico on the outside into turn 1. You should check some of my old posts
