The 50 greatest Formula One drivers:

I found this in the London Times it may be of interest.

The 50 greatest Formula One drivers: Nos 10-1 - Times Online

"...It would be fair to say that few know what goes on in Raikkonen’s head, least of all Raikkonen..."

On Alain Prost. " one seasoned commentator observed: “The faster he went, the slower he looked.”

A good list, but I have to wonder how Lewis Hamilton places higher than Mario Andretti given that LH is only in his 3rd or 4th full season. Hamilton is exceptionally talented, but has been placed too high given his experience compared to others.

How Juan Manuel Fangio III places 6th is beyond me. I'd have placed him #2 or #3. The guy wins almost half of the races he starts and 5 world championships, a feat unequaled until Michael Schumacher, who did it with the benefits of strict team orders. Senna would be my #1, Fangio #2 and probably Jimmy Clark #3.
