Lewis Hamilton and Michael Schumacher shared the grid for only a few years in F1.

We spoke to F1 fans at the Autosport International show and asked plenty of you some quick-fire questions.

Our presenters from On Track GP, our YouTube channel launched in collaboration between PlanetF1.com and DR Sports, were on the ground in Birmingham to get your opinions on who was better between certain drivers.

In our either/ors, Ayrton Senna came out comfortably on top against Alain Prost, Lewis Hamilton handily beat Michael Schumacher and, in the likely battle for the 2025 Red Bull seat, Daniel Ricciardo was a comfortable winner in fan opinions against Sergio Perez.

F1 fans choose between all-time greats, rookies and more in On Track GP poll

Possibly the greatest in-team duel in F1 history was discussed with fans, with a snap decision between Ayrton Senna and Alain Prost resulting in a landslide victory for the Brazilian.

As one fan explained: “Senna for entertainment, pure entertainment. Prost was more technical, I would say Senna for pure entertainment.”

In an on-the-spot poll between the two seven-time F1 World Champions next, Hamilton and Schumacher, an early vote for the Ferrari legend was quickly overhauled by the Mercedes driver as more fans weighed in.

“Hamilton, but Schumacher for entertainment – especially off-track as well,” was the assessment from one supporter on that one.
