How things change.
The caveat in that case is that literally each and every goat contender in that sport definitely juiced (from Anqetil to Eddie Merckx to Indurain to Armstrong)

Graf. Schumacher is in many ways overrated and took advantage of a weak era.

See why I mentioned Brawn and Byrne but not Jean Todt? It was Brawn and Byrne leading the technical side already at Benetton.

Ha, when dip chits like you keep pushing the unpushable, it is dam right laughable.

Everybody, and I mean everybody, knows that Graf was assisted by the stabbing. Even Gunter said, he stabbled Seles so it could clear the way for Graf to be #1 again. And that is a well know fact.

However, dip chits are blind to that fact..

Re: Greater GOAT: Steffi Graf or Michael Schumacher?

It's 100 times more difficult to be no 1 in tennis.
Easy to see. Vettel is already a successor for schumacher.
Not only because of his talent. It's simply relatively easy to put one man in the front row in formula 1.
Schumacher opened the door of course.

Re: Greater GOAT: Steffi Graf or Michael Schumacher?

The problem with the comparison is that the best F1 driver doesn't necessarily have a car equal to someone else's. You can have the same racket as your opponent. You simply can't have the same car, or the same crew chief. The car is too much of F1.

If you wanted to compare Steffi to say ...Michael Phelps this could get interesting.

Re: Greater GOAT: Steffi Graf or Michael Schumacher?

This has to be the worst thread ever, and people is even answering seriously
You can't even compare Schumacher to Fangio or whatever other driver in the old days just because there is so much difference between those eras... and you then compare a driver to a tennis player?
