  1. Proof that these lists can never be taken seriously is the fact that Vettel is on it. While he is a good driver he has not been around long enough to make it into the top 40, let alone in front of drivers who have won the World Championship.

  2. Alonso in front of Hakkinen and Piquet Sr.?

  3. I do have to question Vettel's place as well as Hamilton's. I mean, I like both of them, but shouldn't a semi-lenghty career have *some* say on this list? Senna and Clark both had nearly 10 years under their belts and we consider them to have been taken away from us at the height of their talents...
