Ayrton Senna

Arguably faster than any other driver of his era, as his 41 grand prix wins and three world titles proved, Senna also had a ruthless streak like no other.

Michael Schumacher

The first true great of the world championship F1 era, 'El Maestro' took five titles and won 47 per cent of the grands prix he started.

Alain Prost

They called him 'le professeur'. Silky smooth, fiercley intelligent and with four world titles on his CV, it was a well-deserved nickname.

Jim Clark

Perhaps the greatest natural talent ever seen in Formula 1. Clark didn't seem to understand why he was fast, but destroyed top fields time and again.

Jackie Stewart

Jackie Stewart was one of those drivers who was so smooth, so precise, that he didn't look quick unless you had a stopwatch in your hand.

Niki Lauda

The Austrian was regarded as a no-mark when he bought his way into Formula 1 with March after an average career in F3 and F2, but some eye-catching performances with BRM in 1973 earned him a surprise move to Ferrari.

Stirling Moss

If this list was for the greatest all-round racing driver, there'd be a strong case for putting Stirling Moss right at the top. Success in sportscars, touring cars and rallying underlined the breadth of his talent.

Fernando Alonso

The Michael Schumacher juggernaut was unstoppable in the first part of the 2000s, but it was brought to a halt by Spain's first world champion in 2005.

Gilles Villeneuve

Gilles Villeneuve won only six of his 67 grands prix and has not a single world championship to his name. History, though, goes beyond numbers and will remember the diminutive French Canadian as one of the sport's greatest competitors.
