A reminder of what a genuinely dominant car looks like, and why Schumi's records will be so hard to match. There were 17 races in the 2002 season. The Ferrari's of Schumacher and Barrichello won 15 of the 17, and finished 1-2 nine times. And Rubens did not even start in two races! Schumacher finished on the podium 17 times out of 17 races. You know a car is truly "the best on the grid" when it finishes the season first and second, taking numerous 1-2 race finishes along the way. But there have been no such cars since the "anti-dominance" rules changes in the 2000's. Without such cars I can't see Schumi's records for total wins and podiums being beaten. His 7 WDC's ... perhaps.
