Hamilton. He's fake in almost everything. 

 

I don't think he's fake, I think he tries wayyyyy to hard to please everyone and say something but nothing, which is when you get accidents like "slums". Hence best fans, blessed its all simple stuff that is something but nothing around the track. 

 

I'm surprised and slightly miffed both my childhood hero (Mansell) and my favourite driver of all time (Hamilton) appear on a lot of people's lists. I think the problem is they are both easily misunderstood and LH44 especially interpreted as disingenuous.

 

Anyway my List:

 

1. M Schumacher - Far too arrogant and got away with murder in AUS 94. Was crazy talented but had no class.

2. J Villeneuve - Too Cocky for his own good. Seems to pop up every few months to have a go at someone.

3. M Verstappen - Spoilt Brat who expects everyone to jump out of his way because he is the chosen one. Needs to grow up.

4. S Vettel - Less his personality but more the fact that he expects to treated in the same category as the greats when he won 4 titles in a Newey car with no opposition.

5. N Rosberg - Basically this one is for thinking he was in the same continent of talent as LH, or that he wasn't gifted the 16 title by reliability failures on the other side of the garage.

6. D Coulthard - For being Wet and never fighting to actually win the title. Everytime Ron said 'Let Mika past' he cow towed without a fight.

7. N Piquet - Basically a git who fluked 3 titles, was generally a bastard (Comments about Mansell's wife especially).

8. R Schumacher - For living off Micheal's coat tails....

9. A Prost - For all the Political skulduggery, getting Pole moved by Balestre at Suzuka 90, for stealing Mansell's chassis in Silverstone 90 etc  

 

 

Is surprised Hamilton and Mansell are on ANYONE's list, then gives a list including most of the top 10 successful drivers of all time?  :lol:  :lol:

Sorry, do you hate people for being amazing and yet humble?

 

I do well not hate but people who are so good at what they do that pretty much everyone knows they are amazing without ever needing to blow their horn annoy me to no end because you cant really fault them for anything... Forces one to face his own mediocrity at its full brunt, cant even hide behind 'well at least I am a decent guy' excuse...

Lol, I can just imagine the reaction on here if Lewis came out with a Clarkism like "why is everyone else driving so slowly?"! Suddenly, a humble lack of understanding of one's own talents would be a disgraceful and disrespectful arrogance. Yes, I know Clark was speaking in private and was probably being genuine.

Ascari took being asked to do an Indy rookie test rather better though.

I'm puzzled.  Is cow towing some bizarre sort of rural sport?  I know country folk are a bit weird, so maybe this fits in with cheese rolling, dwile flonking and morris dancing?

Cheese rolling is in no way weird.

(Disclaimer - I live within a mile of the hill and my oldest friend's wife is the aunt of the current Lewis Hamilton of cheese rolling, but my opinion is in no way biased).

It's funny how with a best driver thread, I always have a good ponder over all pf the options. Over the years, however, a select few have really, really annoyed me for one reason or another that are always easier to remember. ;)

 

Michael Schumacher

Eddie Irvine

Lewis Hamilton

Sebastian Vettel

Romain Grosjean

Paul Di Resta

Jacques Villeneuve 

Juan Pablo Montoya

David Coulthard (as a driver at least)

I had a sudden memory - Markus Winkelhock actually led the 2007 Euro GP in the rain in his first, and only, F1 start. Now that's annoying. If someone as anonymous as Winkelhock could find himself in a seat - in a race - and actually lead - Why can't I?!?!? (Yeah, I know the answer...don't bother reminding me...)

 

And as luck would have it - I still have this beauty saved off... for obvious reasons. Now I ask, how many other lunatics would have anything related to the Spyker F1 team lying around their hard drives???Winkelhock.jpg

It is, we do it here in the Netherlands all the time.

Ok, I'll add something to this topic. I have a standing spat with 3 personalities that actively compete in the 60+ championships I follow annually.

 

1 is one of the all time greats. 1 is an abhorrently lucky slice of bread. 1 is an Instagram meltdown menace to Racing sanity.

Probably says more about Marko's mindset than anything else.

 

Montoya's point that the gearing was simply off and that overtaking was therefore all but impossible sounds, well, like something you see in pretty much every racing series from time to time.

Yes exactly. Did he use "I got no grip" too often?

Well I was just giving my honest opinion. It is interesting how some people see the same drivers entirely differently, Hamilton is seen by either Genuine or completely fake, Mansell as a determined fighter or a whiner. 

 

Similarly with my List everbody has qualities they value more, to me qualities like dishonesty, cheating, pettiness will always rile me and overshadow any talent however great. Others are less bothered by the negatives and will always admire the Schumacher/Verstappen's for their talent despite their downsides.

 

Also the top guys are always to make more of an impression either positively or negatively. Tarso Marques or Zsolt Baumgartner might be really annoying but I have never seen enough of either to notice!!!

He was an F1 driver, and so qualifies to be listed (as we are talking about "all time" here). All that remains is to decide whether annoying behaviour years after the driving career qualifies. If it does, he is right up there and could even unite the forum on this issue.

Yep was gonna say Ticktum. I hardly even follow feeder series so the amount of times I've already encountered that arrogance of his speaks volumes. 

I don't remember ever thinking "I hope this guy doesn't make it to F1" on character alone.

All I have to say is a certain drivers is dam lucky I don't come from a southern London suburb as if it did he would be right up there.

One thing though I have never been able to watch Toto without thinking he would suddenly turn into this guy

:lol: if we were to start doing that, I can add a bunch more names to the list. I'm counting this as "during the driving career"   :p

2. You can find someone annoying without hating them :)

I will have to check the records but I'm pretty sure he didn't finish last in every race he competed in and at some point will have finished in front of every other driver on the grid (he won a few races) so that statement can't be true  :p

Is it just me or is Gosjean so far ahead of all the other drivers in terms of being annoying that it is simply ridiculous?
