My vote was for lavaggi... he was ridiculous in the mid 90's, always a replacement for teams which needed money...
Who remembers Hideki Noda?

Ricardo Rosset, especially in Monaco where he almost killed a marshall!

Yugi Ide, he was a danger to all within a 10km radius of him. Lucky they pulled his superliscence before he caused serious injury or death to someone.

Pacific 1995, Minardi 1996.

You know that famous pass of Jacques Villeneuve around the outside of Schumi at Estoril's Parabolica? (http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=FlFWvaQCS1w)

Well the slow car that Jacques gets a tow off of is Lavaggi, going massively slowly, twice that year (or more) failing to get within 107% in Quali, which was introduced that year to prevent people like Lavaggi and Deletraz taking part.

Mind you, in the same car (Pacific), Lavaggi was closer to his team-mate than Jean-Denis Deletraz was after him, so Deletraz was worse.
No, I'm not calmer. Just more jaded.

I vote for Alex Yoong. He was slow and make so many mistakes. Have to say that Yuji Ide was also very poor.

Yoong was the worst driver ... He made far too many mistakes to even finish a race ,,,

Ide is no doubt the worst driver ever, he retired at most of the races and he failed to score a single point

Lots of F1 drivers have failed to score a point. It's not the fact that Ide failed to score a point, it's the way in which he scored no points, i.e couldn't keep it on the road half the time.

Well Ide got his superlicense withdrawn by FIA, so he must have been one of the worst.

The slowest must be Chanok Nissany, he was SIX seconds slower than the next slowest in the only practise session he entered. :nosweat:

Ralf Schumacher is far from this list..... I mean, on his day, he could be
unbelievably quick.
See France GP 1999.
