David Coulthard believes that Michael Schumacher would've found his match if he was competing in Formula One today, after 'one of the best drivers in history' Lewis Hamilton equaled the German's title record last weekend.

Coulthard, who won 13 Grands Prix, competed against both drivers during his 15-year career in the sport, finishing second behind Schumacher in 2001. Hamilton won his first title at the 2008 Brazilian Grand Prix - Coulthard's last race. 

When comparing Hamilton and Schumacher, Coulthard couldn't separate them.
