21 Max Verstappen

Extremely talented, but time will tell

Biggest talent of the era, he will be in top 3 in ten years time I guess

Really talented already won a race amazing

He is redefining F1. Has the arrogance of Senna and Schumacher but seems to be even more talented.

Awesome telent, a real shame we never got to see his true potential

Looking at the 2013 and 2012 Lotus, he would probably have fought for world titles if not for his rally crash in 2011. A real legend-and to boune back so soon from his 2007 Canada crash! A real legend.

326 GP's in Formula One in the best teams, tried Indy and now, are racing in the brazilian Stock Car where he are a champion (won the 2014 title) and beyond that, he's a very competitive kart racer, an very cool and family guy.

Over 300 races and now stil going in indycar he is the only formula 1 driver to beat the stig on top gear and he's a pretty friendly chap to

Drive it like he stole it - How to drift a Lotus 72 - see Ronnie

So close to the 78 championship and would have gone further but for his fatal Monza crash

29 Juan Pablo Montoya

Great driver, great technique, great strength, had to be world champion

Very risky an cold hearted pilot

Never a dull moment with Montoya, great driving skills and fun to watch, just a shame he was up against a superior ferrari car but he still managed to snatch pole away from Scumacher on many occasions.

He knows how to overtake round the outside

30 Jenson Button

A champion and gent! He has beaten all his world champion team mates in the same car and beaten young hot shots in the same car too! That speaks for itself! If Button had the right car more often he would be multiple champion without doubt!

Ultra smooth and intelligent. Give him the another Brawn and Vettel can kiss goodbye. Only bad contracts and lack of concentration in his younger years will bring him down.

Great man. Not the quickest over a lap but his race pace and general intelligence usually makes him finish higher up. He has had to fight for his carear, benetton/renault and honda, yet came out on top. His personality is brilliant. He should be in the top 10 and at the very least higher then hamilton

Very consistent and some of his wins could only be won by greats showing great dominance and skill, especially with Canada 2011 and Brazil 2012

How can a so spectacular wold champion be so far on the list?

He should be lower then this. It's a disgrace he's even on the list

Only Driver to win World Drivers Championship - posthumously

One of the most gifted in the business.
Who vote these positions. People who never as Jochen Rindt drive!

Made Williams the Historic team that it is

38 David Coulthard

Was very fast in the early 2000's and if not for Schumacher, he would have been champion in 2001. Not as fast with Red Bull, but he was still quicker than Mark Webber. In my opinion, he is one of the best drivers not to win the championship.

Hopeless driver. Crashed so often and blamed team

Never a fan of him as a racer! But love him as a F1 commentator! Brilliant!

39 Valtteri Bottas

Bottas has a good chance to come high in the championship.

He is not doing very good this year ( 2016) he is still fast and good at overtakes bring on (2017)

Bottas is proving how much awesome he is
