List of top 10 Formula 1 Racers

Lewis Hamilton

The British racer has broken some records which probably some had thought would never be broken, but Lewis Hamilton has done justice to all records. With his first season with McLaren, he lost to Kimi Raikkonen by a single point. He won his first World Championship in 2008. After 2016, Hamilton has never looked back, he has won every title since then and has become the only driver to record over 100 pole positions. He has a total of 7 World Championships to his name and has won 103games in his career.

Michael Schumacher

When talking about the best F1 drivers, Michael Schumacher’s name immediately pops up. Until the golden time of Hamilton, Schumacher was all over the place in the elite club. He has won seven titles, out of which five are in a row. With his dedication, passion and immense talent he has changed the the vision of F1 racing. The German had the best time of his career with Ferrari. In the early. In the early 2000s, five world titles, 48 wins, and a record book that had Michael’s name in almost every field.

Sebastian Vettel

Almost unbeatable at one time, his form in Formula 1 was something to vouch for. After setting off in 2007, in the first three years itself, he took away nine podiums and five wins. Over the span of next four years, he became the face of F1, he won four consecutive championships and became the youngest World Champion in the process. Vettel is still regarded as the best drivers on the grid, and his list of records is likely to stand for many more seasons.

Alain Prost

His main ability and arsenal was his brainpower, with the speed and to go with that natural precision in his driving that allowed Prost to become France’s first world champion in 1985. He beat Jackie Stewart’s and ended his 27 wins in 1987, he made McLaren won 15 out of 16 races across the season. Prost remained at the top of his game until his retirement, taking his fourth and final title for Williams at 38 years old.

Ayrton Senna

One of motorsport’s most legendary figures, Ayrton Senna remains the benchmark for raw talent and charisma. His commitment to a lap and his desire to push the boundaries to any extent is what makes him away from the crowd. He has won three titles to his name. Senna is a mixture of both speed and ambition, this surely drives the racer ahead from everyone.

Fernando Alonso

The two time World Champion has an image of fearless, aggressive racer, although his reign was not much more of than just the two titles. Even in the end of 2021 season, Alonso was not much lucky, as he only secured a fourth place at the end of the 2021 Hungarian Grand Prix. He has still managed to clinch away 32 wins, 22 pole positions and 23 fastest laps with also fans favourite.

Nigel Mansell

Another one of the unluck F1 drivers, with a lot of unwanted issues and matches, he has faced a rough time on the roust. He managed to finish in second place in the championship three times – missing out on the title by two points in 1986. Mansell took five consecutive wins to start the 1992 seasons, going to claim on four more and taking an additional three second-place finishes.

Jackie Stewart

Jackie Stewart was one of the first drivers to prove that racers can, and should, strive for better safety standards. As a triple champion and dominant force in the sport, Stewart had the credibility needed to change the culture around safety in motorsport. Outside the vigilance for safety, he was a product of sheer talent on track and was the man to beat for every opponent of his at one time. The racer has 23 wins and three World Championships to his name.

Niki Lauda

With three seasons in F1 under his belt, Lauda joined Ferrari for the 1974 season and secured two wins and fourth place in the championship for 1974, having often set the pace but suffered misfortune. He suffered a life-threatening crash at the Nurburgring to miss out on the title by one point to James Hunt. He won his last title in 1977 and retired after a gap of two years from the game. Later on, he worked as a manager for Ferrari and Jaguar.

Jim Clark

Clark had gathered the limelight and was only interested in winning. From 1962-65, the Scottish ace was arguably only beaten in the world title when he encountered mechanical issues and at the time of his death in 1968. He is famous for racing in the most dangerous period of motorsport’s history.
