Top 10 Drivers In Formula 1 History

Top 10 Drivers In Formula 1 History: For more than six decades the best drivers in the world have gathered on the same grid and have flown the best cars and the best technology in the world, but of all those, who are the best in history? Senna? Fangio? These are the top 10 drivers in Formula 1 history.

It is clear that to reach the Formula 1 you need to have a much higher quality as a pilot. Always talked about the financial resources to compete in the premier class, but even the most money leads to any team must have an undeniable talent to bring a formula 1. In the sixty years of F1 as such is very difficult Highlight several drivers as the best and in addition, each documented follower could make a totally subjective list. However, based on their achievements and performances, we will try to reveal who are the 10 best drivers in the history of Formula 1 .

To be the best is not necessary to have the best tools on the track,   nor is it the best who has won more championships. It is probable that those who had the most merit were those who survived times when the risk was much more present than now, when current safety measures can save the life of a pilot that accidents as terrible as that of Fernando Alonso in Australia. Jackie Stewart or Juan Manual Fangio , for example, saw as many of his fellow race suffered serious injury or were dying. “‘Your dad is a pilot, and when are you going to kill him?’ ‘They would ask my kids at school,” Stewart often recalls, in fact, three of the people on the list that we left behind lost their lives competing , Jim Clark , Gilles Villeneuve and Ayrton Senna .

All that we leave below won at least two world championships, except Gilles Villeneuve , one of the pilots of F1 history is remembered most pure talent showed on track. He did not win titles, but was runner-up in 1979. In the words of Niki Lauda : “Villeneuve had the best talent in all of us. No matter what car you put it on, it was always fast. “

The only current driver who we include in the list is Fernando Alonso . The Spaniard, even though he has not fought for the title since 2012, has shown he has grown as a driver since winning his world championships with Renault. He fought for championships at Ferrari without having the best car and now, despite suffering with McLaren, he is still considered by team leaders, fans and former drivers as one of the best on the grid and history.
