It's a British list so I'm not in the least surprised. Look at the top drivers. Alan Henry hates Alonso, btw.

And to place Mika H before MS - and MS in 11:th - is simply laughable. :roll::

Shocking list
Really what we should to is take the Italian, Brazilian, Spanish, French, German, etc, etc lists and take the average to give us a true reflection of the greatest F1 drivers of all time are.
Stirling Moss is the best F1 driver of all time, I think not, a great driver, true, one of the best, true, but never the best.
He never won a world championship so never felt the pressue of being world champion or defending his crown.
Geatest F1 driver of all time - Fangio or Clark maybe Schumi if i'm feeling generous (only because he manipulated the team to his needs and thats what it takes)

I agree that Alonso should be on the list.
Senna was awesome, but a little dirty at times, I still love him though.
Shumacher was the dirtiest driver ever, too many obvious things against him to make him top driver. (taking out Hill, kamakasi style, and parking it at monaco). But still a great driver.
Prost was awesome too.

My top 5 guys:

1. Fernando Alonso (Yes im bias, i really do love his driving and his attitude)
2. James Hunt ( i just like him, and he had some style!)
3. Graham Hill (just fantastic)
4. Juan Manuel Fangio (obvious reasons)
5. Michael Schumacher ( I dont like the man himself, he wasnt the cleanest racer, but he had alot easy too. His 2005/2006 campaign to me, brought new light on him and his racing, really gave a good fight in 06 and took it to Alonso)

Thats my 5 guys.
