1 time out of how many races? and that win was repaid in full
schumacher was so lucky to
1, Clutch at Suzuka 98 costing him the world championship
2, broke his leg in 1999 when he would have easily won the championship.
3, Engine at Suzuka 2006 costing him the world championship
could so easily have been 10 WDC , 12 if he stayed on for 2 years extra with ferrari
many would say the same thing about ayrtons death
Damon Hill Adelaide 1994, nuff said.
And if you don't think MS was gifted with luck during his career you are blind. It may have been little things, but it was a whole lot of little things that kept going his way. Be it team mates getting all the component failures, safety cars when it suited him, track marshals pushing his beached car back into the race in the 95' European GP.
My joke about Vettel getting MS's luck was in reference to Martin Brundle talking about how MS luck has turned since coming back. Obviously he sees it.
And no, nothing wrong with having luck. The best create their own luck, so good on him.

How do you get that fom what he said - Senna WAS a 'hard' driver who wasn't above running an opponent off the track, or simply running into them if it was a tactical choice.
Both were/are greatr drivers but also flawed.
