Mika because he is the only true driver to beat Schumacher for two and nearly three seasons in pretty equal cars... (1998 the second half when Ferrari got the gap closed).

It's Mika, but Kimi may take over his mantle provided he goes on racing beyond '09!!
Keke Sr was awesome, and his winning record does him no justice, because he was much more competitive in races (and his engineers and teammates rated him highly)! Don't forget that he was responsible for the development of Williams' 85 and '86 ultra-competitive cars, having driven for them in the first half of the eighties. Unfortunately he made a poor decision to join Mclaren in '86, where Alain Prost had already established himself as the lead driver. Keke was an epitome of a fearless, brash driver of the turbocharged 80s era!

Kimi .. because he won his title with ferrari and he's the first and the only finnish driver along from 3 that won the championchip with the Prancing horse .. and winning a formula 1 title with ferrari has another feel of thrilled and excitment .. don't agree with me guys :) ?? (ferrari fans )

But Williams fans (are there any any more?) and McLaren fans probably wouldn't agree with you. I'd rate them as follows: Mika>Kimi>Keke.

Mika was one of only two guys who consistently matched Schumi in a title battle (the other being Alonso, who had a better car for the first half of the season and a worse one for the second half.. Don't say Hill, he was dominated by Schumi in a slower Benneton. Don't say Villeneuve, he was no Mika. He had way the best car too.)

Keke was infintely the coolest though. He wasn't afraid to speak his mind, and wasn't arkward or apathetic like Mika/Kimi. And he was brave, very brave.

Never posted in here so: I think Mika is the best, a true "natural" talent with huge speed as well, totally mad before his crash in Adelaide, but after that he calmed down and became a gentleman, a true champion and a fair driver.

Excluding JJ Lehto (for obvious reasons) and Keke Rosberg (who won his only championship in 1982 only because of the tragic events occurred to the Ferrari team), the duel is between Hakkinen and Raikkonen... :cool:
The former has won two championships, the latter only one; but Raikkonen looks more talented (although psychologically less constant) and obviously can increase his results in the next years.
So I think we had better waiting until the end of his career before making comparisons between these two great drivers!

It must be Hakkinen or Raikkonen...
Even though Rosberg was a WDC, I dont think, he was such a good driver like Kimi or Mika... And won the championship with only one victory :blink:
