Michael Schumacher's successful 2001 Grand Prix seasons not only brought him his fourth World Championship but also netted him a clutch of new records. Most notably his victory in Belgium raised his total of wins to 52, beating the record set by Alain Prost in 1993 - but he also set new records for the number of fastest laps, distance led and laps led. This volume examines Schumacher's place in F1 history, how he brought glory back to Ferrari and, comparing him with other genius drivers, whether he really is the greatest of them all. Topics covered include: Schumacher's second World Championship for Ferrari, and how he brought Maranello back from the doldrums; maturing from "crash and bash" to elder statesman; his skills in qualifying, in the wet, in exploiting unfavourable situations, and in making crippled cars go on to win; evaluation from drivers and team principals about how he would measure up against greats such as Jim Clark, Alain Prost and Ayrton Senna; the records he has broken, how, and what records remain; and full career statistics plus the record-breaking achievements, with comparisons. There are colour photographs of Schumacher on and off duty.
