The definitive list, not just who is in the fastest car, but the most influential, history-altering driver that has ever graced the most demanding of sports. These are the greatest Formula One drivers ever. Vote for the F1 driver you believe deserves the top spot, and vote down anyone you don't think should be listed. You can also rerank this list in any order you want. Some of the legendary Formula One drivers listed, including the late, great Ayrton Senna, died way too young under horrible circumstances. The sport is incredibly dangerous and the participants are incredibly brave. This list of Formula 1 fatal car crashes, unfortunately, hammers that point home all too well. Since Formula One's opening season in 1950 to the present decade an incredible array of talent has appeared, shone and even died in the hands of an F1 car. Sadly, since it is impossible to race Jeson Button against Schumacher (when he was good) or Senna against Hamilton, this list is the best chance we have to decide once and for all.
