Inspired by the ‘best driver never to win a championship’ thread: who is/was the best driver never to have won a GP?
I’ve heard many stories about Chris Amon and his dreadful luck but I’ve never seen any of the races in question. Therefore my vote’s got to go to Heidfeld – consistent and reliable, a number of inspired strategy calls in changeable weather, and some fantastic double overtakes over the years!
Though I imagine some may disagree… (why am I thinking of PM?)
A bit of a cliche, but Brundle, Or Verstappen.
Verstappen? Better than Heidfeld and Brundle? What made you choose him?
My vote goes to Brundle too. And Nick Heidfeld. Just to annoy PM. Well, partly.
The pick the best of a bad bunch…. thread!!!
I wanted to say Oliver Panis – then I remembered luck can sometimes favour these drivers. ;)
I think it’s Nico Rosberg – but that will change next year!
Maybe we should make a “Best driver to never get a podium” thread. =)
I would go with Nick Heidfeld. Nico Rosberg will win a race at some point of time.. but looks like Quick Nick’s career is over without a win.
Tommy Byrne and Stefan Bellof….Two drivers who potentially could have been world champions…
Chris Amon. Makes Mark Webber look like he’s stumbled upon a field of 4-leaf clover….
What? You don’t agree?
Alan McNish. A god at Le Mans, and was unlucky to be stuck in a crappy Toyota with crappier management for his only time in F1.
I would also say Rosberg, but he’ll get one sooner rather than later.
I always rated Mika Salo as a driver. Dunno why.
Current field I have to say Nico Rosberg,he is very high class driver hope as he said yesterday that he wins a race in 2011.
