Best to worst at what? Because if it's Photoshop then it's going to have to be Mark Plourde first and everyone else way down.

Can I be the pompous arse that actually is working on a mathematical model on drivers (well, kinda half arsed) and still finds this hilarious? :D

Also, Dracone first, IMO

That's a pretty random list of drivers. Dracone is more entertaining than any of the others.

The thing I remember most about Viso was his crash in GP2 at Magny Cours.  A very lucky escape!

I was there. It happened in front of us albeit not on the piece of track right in front of us. We didn't know if he was ok until the following morning.

Emilio De Villota has a noble surname, therefore he must be better than the likes of Nuvolari and Prost. :smoking:

2=x2 so x=21/2
 
4=y4  so y=41/4 so y=41/4=21/2=x
 
My logic is infailable.

And where can I git sum?

 

 

My only question is why are Prost and Foyt on here?

There's a HUGE gap to the rest down there in ignominy land

Jp

 

EDIT: AJ was better.

Ahah relax.
I was just making fun at those uber-serious F1 threads were people try to rate drivers in a precise order using scientific or statistical methods, not realising those guys are often separated by milliseconds despite driving different cars, and ignoring that performances by humans are often influenced by your mental state, by the amount of hours you sleeep, by how you eat, by the health of your family, by the intestinal condition of your cat...and all these things are extremely volatile.
We are discussing a natural and human phenomenon and there is no absolute pecking order in nature.

And yet nobody would question it if you say Nuvolari and Prost were better than Mark Plourde.

That can not be the reason, you surely have a genuine and as of yet indisclosed (JP   ;)  ) reason for creating this thread.... and with the various lists already suggested you clearly hit a nerve.... One feel like posting a link in the Ross Brown thread.

The winner here is clearly Prost. The man was able to score wins and titles with the arguably least aerodynamic and most bent nose cone ever.
