surely, Yuji Ide was the worst driver in Formula one in the last 10 years

I have so many ideas about bad drivers, but the names that come on the top are Yoong, Ide and Deletraz

The thing with Yuji Ide was that he was the worst driver to come into F1 for a very long time - the days of the pay-driver had long since dispappeared.He was fairly bad but I think Inoue and Delatraz were worse - Inoue ran into a course car once at Monaco which flipped his Arrows as he was being towed back ,and caused Damon Hill to be unsighted so he ran into the back of Schumacher at Monza.I'm sure there's more to it than that but that's all I can remember.(oh and he got mowed down by the Safety Car in Hungary!)

Deletraz was just hopelessly off the pace , and completely unsuited to being an F1 driver , more so than Ide.He was nine seconds off the pace of the Williams car and even once had to retire becuase he was not fit enough to last a GP distance..Shame they didn't introduce the 107% rule a year earlier to get rid of the mobile chicanes like himself...

Not everyone... but Mario Andretti was good (maybe some Italian blood made a good difference).
Sad to know his son didn't do as well.

I think Ide is the worst driver (e.g. the stupid manouevre at Imola where he rolled Albers), just closely in front of Rosset who even managed to park in Monaco before Schumacher did it... :P. And the third place will be a close call between Langes, Lavaggi, and Délétraz.

Yoong, because he was failed to race in several occasions, but he seems better now in A1GP

To my mind Rosst was the worst driver because of the start-crash in Spa 1998. All the cars crashing in front of him and although he had much time to hit the brakes, he ran into the scene of the accident with immense speed.
I always wondered whether his reaction time was so bad or whether he tought "There is a gap. Thats my chance for points"
