The Greatest?

Now that Michael Schumacher has captured his record sixth World Driving Championship, there are a lot of people claiming that the German is the greatest Formula One driver of all time. The BBC mildly disputes that here, and I would be inclined to suggest that Argentina's Juan Manuel Fangio was indeed the greatest - in the 1950s he won the World Championship five times, in an era not marked by single team dominance as the 90s have been, and also won just under 50% of all the races he entered.
