22 Robert Kubica

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.

25 Rubens Barrichello

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

28 Ronnie Peterson

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

Legend and superb driver

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

He would have won the 78 so hard! #SweDriverAreBest

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 Jacques Villeneuve Jacques Villeneuve

Anyone that thinks JV shouldn't be on this list doesn't understand racing or just hates on him. Here's a guy that takes pole on his first race and should have won also. Astonishingly aggressive driver who would make unbelievable maneuvers overtaking other drivers. Was relentless and not intimidated by anyone. Had Schumacher shaking many times with unpredictable pressure.

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

Bra cause everyone hates him

31 Pedro Lamy

No recurses, no sponsors and a bad car... but good pilot

34 Jochen Rindt

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!

35 Damon Hill

The best driver after Senna! He was terribly robbed for the title in 1994! For me this guy is at least twice world champion and great gentleman! And yes - faster than Schumacher the knocker!

He was a good driver for his age. But unfortunatley his personality off of the T.V. is horrible. If you've meat him that is

I can't believe he is so far in the list.
I personaly believe he was a great driver and should be miuch highier in the list

36 Rio Haryanto

Simply the best

Won many world championships and had a much glorified career with perhaps the most successful team in F1 :Manor Marrussia. He is truly a legend and one of a kind.

37 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

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!
