Oh, Hollywood... are you even capable of producing a character who isn't the greatest driver ever to take the wheel? When need be, fictional characters can have the cold steel nerve of Mika Hakkinen, the reflexes of Ayrton Senna, and the same effect on basic physics as a superhero. But that's what we go to the movies to see, right? Breakneck speeds, squealing tires, and the best drivers in film.

All else aside, ultimately your favorite drivers in movies are really going to come down to your favorite cars and the movies they happen to be in. Granted, some cinematic wheelmen and wheelwomen are objectively better drivers than others. But this list is about ranking the fictional movie characters with whom you'd most want to ride shotgun during a car chase.

At the end of the day, it's really up to you. So pick your favorite and vote them up to the head of the pack. Rerank the whole thing to create your own list of the best drivers in film history and be sure to add any great fictional movie drivers we may have missed.
