Stewart was a great with lots of talent and made F1 safety what it is today, he won Nurburring by over 4 mins.
Jim Clark is definitely on the top step with Senna. Other drivers called him a demi-god cause he was so good, could drive any car fast as and with problems. Clark could break lap records with a wheelbarrow ! He won Nurburgring by almost 5 mins !!!
Brabham won 3 titles and the only driver to win in his own car.
Nuff said.

I find this team to be a joke and needs to change its ways by replace one of its drivers with someone that they know the level of there skill so that they have someone they can compare with there young upcoming drivers as they hope to find another young driver who is as good or better than Sebastian Vettel but it's just not going to happen with the current way the team is being run the only reason it worked when Vettel was at Toro Rosso was because unlike today the Toro Rosso was an almost identical car to that of the Red Bull with the only major difference been the engine that the teams ran making it at that time Vettel wasn't just racing he's team mate but also those from Red Bull however after the 2009 season the rules changed causing the Toro Rosso team to have to build there own car from scratch so unlike when Vettel was there they are only able to race just there team mate which makes evaluating there drivers in my eyes impossible as it hard to tell if both drivers are under-perf

"Being a great doesn't mean you have to win a WDC in a lesser car, we mean you go to a lesser team and still win races in outstanding performances which proves you can still win without the best car and means you are a great driver."

And I suppose the person who will decide whether the car is "lesser" or not will be YOU, correct? Because a very noticeable trend in Seb''s short career is that whatever car he wins races in is automatically upgraded to "top notch" status. Look at the way the STR3 has been retroactively upgraded to well beyond "lesser" status - odd, considering that nobody back in 2008 thought that way.The RB chassis it used was very poor, as shown by its record with the RB team. The same is true for the RB8, a very ordinary car which people such as you make out to be like an FW18.
