"F1 Racing" Top 100 Formula 1 drivers

took from another forum

F1 Racing asked 77 people to help produce a list of the top 100 F1 drivers.
Many of them are journalists, although there were 16 former drivers (5 WDCs)
and a few team principles. 43 are British.

Each of the judges was asked to nominate their top 25 in order and the final
list was made by awarding 25 points for being ranked first, 24 for second,
etc., down to one point for ranking 25th.

I imagine that most judges would have quite similar top 20s so those ranked
outside the top 30 are only there because a handful of judges ranked them
at all. For example, only one judge put Ralf in his top 25 (22nd best of all
time!), so those four points got Ralf into joint 84th. Only the top 30 has
much meaning, and only if you think that the "judges" know anything about F1
anyway - I can accept James Allen (without agreeing with him), but Jim Rosenthal!

my favourite ones (clark and senna) are top 5. (Y)

here's a little tribute i made a month ago (for may 1st) to a friend of mine (camila, dragan (H)). she asked me to make any image (in 500x500, so she could upload it to fotolog.net - http://www.fotolog.net/bymila/?photo_id=7767143) using the photo on the left.

Michael Schumacher would be my No 1 choice, then Senna, then Fangio. But Schumacher still has years left, so he should be known as the NO 1 of all time at the end of his career.

schumacher would be somewhere between 5th and 15th on my list.

it'd be a high place considering i don't like him a bit.

Fangio and Senna are legends but Schumacher is the best no one cant argue!

I agree. He has smashed all the records and has had a amazing, long 13 year career which is still going.

the best answer for those "weird" results are in brian's third paragraph:
I imagine that most judges would have quite similar top 20s so those ranked outside the top 30 are only there because a handful of judges ranked them at all.

No, I don't think that he's the best but you can't deny what he has done ;)

What I said are objetive data. The nationality doesn't matter to see it.

What has he done? He's driving a car that is the best on slow circuits, he is agood driver, but nothing super rite now. He has the potential, but he's not good enough yet to be concidered 34th best of all times
