Also, I assume that means he beat Raikkonen into the list (as the other 3 current driver are surely Vettel, Alonso and Schumacher), which I’m not sure is fair. Hamilton is a great driver, perhaps better than Raikkonen at this particular time, but in the context of what they’ve achieved and how good they’ve been during their careers so far, I’d put Raikkonen higher every time. Hamilton has had 2 really good years- 2007 and 2010. 2008 he had some outstanding drives but bad lows. 2009 was generally fairly good.
Raikkonen though was great in 2003, 2005 and 2007, and although he was accused of being unmotivated in 2009 he still did well in a car that was hardly spectacular.
Of course I might be completely wrong and Raikkonen will beat Vettel, which could be fair- Vettel last year was phenomenal, 2010 was pretty great, 200 he was solid, and 2008 he was pretty special. In terms of number of special performances they’re probably fairly similar, although Vettel has obviously done more/as much in a shorter time. How that is compared to Raikkonen, who knows.
