Most Overrated Formula 1 Drivers

The Top Ten

1 Michael Schumacher

Never allowed a team mate in his team that was allowed to challenge him. Sense won his WCs beating Prost arguably one of the best.

Could not win without cheating, had TC when it was verboten.

How can critics say this like that Shumie was the most tallented driver in is era.

Dick Dastardly!

2 Lewis Hamilton Lewis Hamilton is a British racing driver who races in Formula One for Mercedes AMG Petronas. A five-time Formula One World Champion, he is often considered the best driver of his generation and widely regarded as one of the greatest drivers in the history of the sport. He won his first World Championship more.

Luckiest F1 driver ever, always gets his ass saved by unprecedented events, sudden rain, team orders, wingman in superb car, deliberate accidents by satellite team, engine failure of strongest opponents, many of his wins were not deserving.

In my opinion he's undeservingly lauded to the point of exhaustion...Ever since his debut he always had the luxury of driving a car with top-performance + better treatment and the outcome of countless poles and wins are nothing to be amazed at...Put him in a Force India or Williams (i'm eagerly waiting) for a minimum of 1 year and witness how he'll sweat blood and tears to even clear Round 1 of Qualification...Driver like Daniel Ricciardo possess abundance of skill and capability to turn the game around despite the car not being on the fastest end of spectrum - Arhaan95

The most overrated driver ever by far! he wins since he is in the fastest car and gets treated far better than his teammate (who is usually a mug of a driver to begin with anyway) every single year of his whole career so far. Alonso or Senna with that situation with at least 10 titles easy.

I can't stand him, and he is the luckiest driver ever bar none.

3 Nico Rosberg
4 Sebastian Vettel Sebastian Vettel is a German racing driver currently driving in Formula One for Scuderia Ferrari. He is a four-time Formula One World Champion, having won the championship in 2010, 2011, 2012 and 2013 with Red Bull Racing.

Can only win under very specific circumstances, such as having an entire team mollycoddle him.

Wheel to wheel racing? Spin!

Under pressure? Spin!

Thinks he got "brake tested"? Road rage!

Teammate faster than him? Whine!

Multi 2-1? Feign ignorance!

4 F1 titles? Really? Most overrated driver of all time

5 Fernando Alonso Fernando Alonso is a Spanish racing driver and former Formula One racing driver. He is a two-time Formula One World Champion, and is often regarded as one of the greatest Formula One drivers in the history of the sport.

Is only interested in the money!

Annoying, arrogant and hysterical guy, I glad he leave from F1.

6 Romain Grosjean
7 Sergio Perez
8 Felipe Massa

He can't be overrated since nobody thinks he is good.
