    I’ve thought about it long and hard but I think I have to go for: Tom Pryce, Felipe Massa and Ayrton Senna.

    OP:

    I can’t really expand on the title to be honest, but there is just one rule: they can be ex- or current drivers, but they must be alive (so no Senna, Villeneuve, etc).

    My three are:

    1. Schumacher

    2. Vettel

    3. Hamilton

    Mine were Hamilton, Coulthard and Button, But I was lucky enough to meet the first two, and just get an autograph from Jenson all at the 2009 Festival of Speed. But then I got autographs from a lot of drivers from Thursday pit walks on race weekends. At the moment mine are Massa, Kobayashi and Vettel (Living drivers anyway)

    For current drivers I’d say Schumacher, Vettel, and Kobayashi. For former drivers I’d say Stewart, Prost, and Lauda. For non-drivers I’d say Will Buxton, Adrian Newey, and Bernie Ecclestone. I’d also throw Chandhok in there somewhere… not sure if he’s a current or former driver at this point.

    Meet for what? To say that I’d met them? Then it’s Prost, Stewart, Schumacher (but I’ve already met him).

    But for conversation and stories, it’s Berger, Moss, Alan Jones — assuming I could get the last to talk.

    hmmmmmm

    A good question

    I wouldn’t meet Mansell despite him being a hero. Apparently he’s notoriously boring. I wouldn’t be able to meet those with the philosophical ideals that would make them perfect as a dinner guest – i.e. Senna, as he’s dead.

    So…

    I’d chose

    Gerhard Berger

    Niki Lauda

    Jackie Stewart

    3 interesting, opinionated drivers from the 3 traditionally ‘great’ eras – the 70’s, 80’s and 90’s.

    I find the drivers of the modern era fairly sterile and uninteresting to be honest. Montoya would have been interesting though.

    The days of media training have ruined a lot of the charm of being an F1 driver I think.

    Would love to meet:

    1. Schumi – he’s a legend!

    2. Jenson – seems like a really nice guy

    3. Alonso – just because.

    BTW – Vettel is a really funny down to earth guy and DC is such a gent!
