Hands down Aryton Senna.... had one of the best mentalities ever.... 'If you don't look for the gap then you are no longer a racing driver'

If I was to pick (even though you didn't ask ;) ) a current one that will become one of the legends it will hands down me Alonso for me.... He's the most complete driver and has incredible skill.


Watch Triv come and wax lyrical about Senna too :)

Schumi was very unsporting and had his fair share of 'controversies' .....

Although I guaran-dam-*******-tee ya if Senna didn't die he'd have millions of titles. In the Ferrari years the sport was very uncompetitive as Ferrari had the best staff like Ross Brawn and resources and tons of money.... now teams are getting even more money like Red Bull and Mercedes.

I personly loved Schumacher and i would normally had said him because his record speaks for itself but.... He said Senna was the best ever and if Senna didnt tragicly die then im pretty sure Schumacher wouldnt have had 7world titles so i have to say Senna.

i personally would say loeb he won 7 title in a row with 2 different teams. And he is driving in a street legal car and the point you have to think about is if you put Schumacher or any of the other people in a rally car how would they do. Loeb has been linked to F1 on numerous occasions for showing good pace in tests. So for the reason that he can preform in more then just his own field of racing i would say him

That doesnt not make Shcumi a great driver though, He still managed to win 7 titles, which is a great achievement by anyones standards.

Schumacher isn't as good as people think he is, look at him now.

Indeed, I managed to spin out a Formula Renault at Thruxton a few years back, it was pretty fun to drive, I was just pushing too hard.

I think.. It was a toss up of the top three in the poll for me. Went with Schuey, mainly because he's the one I have seen more of.
