The Contenders: Page 3

41 Alan Jones

Made Williams the Historic team that it is

42 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

Good, but needs to win races to avoid being new Kovalainen.

43 Romain Grosjean

He beats loads of the mid in a terrible haas car he is amazing

44 Jean Alesi
45 Tiago Monteiro

Took a podium in a Jordan

46 Jules Bianchi Jules Bianchi Jules Lucien André Bianchi (3 August 1989 – 17 July 2015) was a French motor racing driver who drove for the Marussia F1 Team in the FIA Formula One World Championship.

Great member for the team and possibly future world champion.

He is a quick guy and deserve to join ferrari.

47 Carlos Reutemann

He never had a team working for his world title's conquest.

48 Felipe Massa Felipe Massa

He has made some of the greatest starts in modern f1, and some of the greatest overtakes. A very unlucky driver, deserved a championship, but ferrari mistakes were far too serious. Also a humble sportsman, and a good guy. I hope people will always recognize the talent of this man.

Awesome driver, unfortunately he has never been as good as he was after his accident

The best driver ever

One of the most underrated F-1 driver

49 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

50 Mark Webber

Like how? By far one of the most underrated drivers ever! Brilliant and if wernt fastest laps now he would be a multi world champ! Late Brake King!

Must be the most unlucky driver in the list, should have been a world champion and should have kicked Seb's backside more then he did but the team favoured Vettel and he missed out.

Way Way underrated can't believe it!

Great but not the greatest still always liked his way of saying how it is

51 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.

52 Eddie Irvine
53 Esteban Gutierrez

He has 6 points in his carrer and was a let down


54 Daniel Ricciardo

Give him a better car/ engine and watch the paddocks heads turn. Has big potential of being one of the greats. Remember only driver to get 3 wins other then Mercedes team drivers for 2014.

His actually very good but give him a better car engine and stuff like that he should be at least to 20

He is the best he won three times in 2014 and in Malaysia are people stupid

He will be a world champion

55 Jean Eric-Vergne
56 Taki Inoue

Worst driver of all time

Best in the world

Hahaaahahaahahaaha! Come on! I thought this was a joke but this is just taking the piss

57 Max Chilton

I don't think he is as talented as most people think

Jules is better then max.

Plenty of cash...?

58 Markus Winkelhock
59 Yuji Ide

This is a joke, right?

Some of the amazing accomplishments of Yuji Ide
-voted one of the five worst f1 drivers of all-time
-finished only one of his races
-best qualifying result was 21st
-had his super license revoked
-one of the greatest Japanese drivers ever

-father of pastor Maldonado

60 Stefan Bellof

Started the 1984 Monaco race stone dead last on the grid, in the only non-turbocharged car in the field, and by the halfway point in the race, he was up to third and catching both Senna and Prost. He also holds the ultimate lap record of the Nordschliefe.
He was somewhat like Senna, only even faster and more fearless. The ultimate 'what if' story in Formula 1.

Would have won 84' Monaco race if it gone a few more laps.
