The math was extremely complicated before Newton - Calculus makes things a whole lot easier.
I would say there's a mix of physicists from what I've noticed. I'm more of a math oriented type of guy - it just makes things easier sometimes.
There's many times however, like Einstein's case, where he had to bring aboard mathematicians because things just get too complicated.
Very simply put, Einstein's universe does work on the macroscopic world. There's enough experimental and mathematical evidence to prove that.
However, it does not work on the quantum scale, so there's Quantum Mechanics, which doesn't work on the macroscopic scale. This is why String
Theory exists, to bring a theory of everything (although I am skeptical about it).
