Brits are generally good but in F1 these were avarage. Like Italian Zanardi - avarage in F1 but God in Indycar etc etc. I could even add Coluthard, Irvine and Damon (who I am big fan of) as avarage but I did not and you can take Herbert out if you like but in my subjective opinion he was around for too long and was avarage who lucked into all of his wins.
There's a couple of "average" drivers in that list, but there's also two world champions, multiple winners of either Grands Prix or other top level races and generally superb drivers in that list.
Anyway Joylon was GP2 champion, right? He won that one because his British dad has a lot of power and connection in Motorsport so he stayed in for long enough to win it.
Having said that it is most natural because the Brits are running motorsport on this side of the pond. No hate just reality.
I wonder what happens if you divide number of (British drivers times x races they entered) by point or race win scored and compare to other nations.
That is offtop and sorry.
