    If that was true they had a very easy chance to make that happen when MS took off Hill in Australia....so would have to say no they were not.

    And as you say, Hamilton was actually beaten for the Championship by Rosberg!

    So glad the current era of drivers is coming to an end, and new talent is replacing them. From 2008 has probably been one of the worst and boring era's of F1, and that includes most of the drivers.
    Hey there, the Heavyweight division is back. You got Wilder, Fury, Ruiz, Joshua. All remarkable fighters in their own right.

    On topic now. I dont think it's really fair to compare drivers from different eras. Motorsport is afterall technology based. That said being good in one machinery doesnt mean you'll be good in any. The cars from the 80s to the 2000s for example are like heaven and earth, so different. Let alone the 50s and 2000s. How can we know Fangio would've liked these type of cars and driving styles, tyre management, dirty air, engine modes etc etc. Maybe he would not be into it.

    But afterall I guess we can make a top 100 list based on the competition they beat and the impact they left on the sport also the entertainment value they had.

    Yes, though the championship now went down to the last race.

    Hammy proved his credentials today as the can-do-no-wrong 34-year old experienced ace driving the car with the most downforce that he is

    Just imagine how fans think that Lewis was not ever going to finish out of 1st. place. This race with no points erases all the records he's breaking and forget where he is so far this season . This last race proves he 's a loser. R Bull just took over ! 7 wins , 26 podiums, 6 fastest laps, without ever getting on pole. Even fastest lap gets a point ! Who needs to be on pole with zero points ? The wins , podiums are where the points are! Lewis when he reaches his 100th pole it will equal zero points!
