  1. Typo spotted by Forever Gaming. Obviously Senna did not win the championship twice in 1991 lol. It was, in fact:
    1988, 1990 and 1991. Sorry about that guys and thanks for pointing it out mate.

  2. Fangio stated that Clark did things with a race car he couldn’t do and wouldn’t try; Jim Clark is unquestionably the greatest driver of all time. Stewart also said he couldn’t challenge Clark unless Clark had a problem of some kind. NOTE: Clark also drove when there were only 9, maybe 10, F1 races a year.

  3. If you extrapolate Fangio's stats to modern levels of 300+ starts, he'd have about 140 wins…making Schumacher and Hamilton look like absolute pikers. One quibble: best 5 of all time should include a pre-war pilot, either Caracciola or Nuvolari, or it's not really "all time", now is it?

  4. Clark and Stewart way up there, with Clark possibly right at the top. Schumacher – cheated, Senna – cheated, Prost – cheated, Remember that Fangio was at the top of his game as F1 started.

  5. Great video. Loved to see Fangio in 1st place. That was Real driving. No electronics, no safety measures, working as mechanic one day to race next day, won titles with 4 different cars, you'll never see that again… Just amazing

  6. As the late Niki Lauda said
    " He was the greatest driver to have ever lived. "
    1 – Senna
    2 – Fangio
    3 – Schumacher
    4 – Clark
    5 – Prost
    Rip legend!

  7. 1. Alain Prost 4x Champion (2 Teams) + 4x Vice
    2. Schumacher 7x Champion (2 Teams) + 2x Vice
    3. Hamilton 7x Champion (2 Teams) + 3x Vice
    4. Fangio 5x Champion (4 Teams) + 2x Vice
    5. Nelson Piquet 3x Champion (2 Teams)

  8. Pure Raw Talent: (BOAT)

    1. Ayrton Senna (died to soon)
    2. Gilles Villeneuve (unlucky driver & died to soon)
    3. Jim Clark (died to soon)


    1. Ayrton Senna
    2. Juan Manuel Fangio
    3. Jim Clark
    4. Lewis Hamilton (still pending, can go up)
    5. Michael.Schumacher
    6. Alain Prost
    7. Jackie Stewart
    8. Niki Lauda
    9. Fernando Alonso
    10. Nelson Piquet / Sebastian Vettel / Gilles Villeneuve

  9. Senna was talented, not great. Greats aren’t afraid to compete, he was and that’s why he crashed into Prost. He was scared he couldn’t win fairly so he took a coward’s way out.
