    Which is, in your opinion, the greatest ever driver pairing? And by that I mean two drivers that had mutual respect and who were team players while fighting each other for the championship. Like Scheckter – Villeneuve in 79 or Button – Hamilton in recent years.

    This is quite a bit biased, but I really really liked the combination Raikkonen-Massa from 2007 to halfway 2009. With them Ferrari took 2 consecutive constructor titles. Only the combination Alonso-Hamilton could beat them back in 2007.
    (that’s a modern driver pairing, other than that Raikkonen-Montoya were a great pairing, Hakkinen-Coulthard too, and from the eighties Prost-LAuda)

    Graham Hill / Jim Clark in the Lotus 49 at the tail end of the 60s was an excellent team of drivers, they got on and were very popular with the fans.

    For me it simply has to be Senna-Prost in the McLaren, but I also think that the Stewart-Cevert partnership of 1973 was fantastic, and if their times had been shifted more towards each other and Cevert hadn’t lost his life, they may have been outstanding.

    @Kingshark I think that Mansell – Piquet and Hamilton – Alonso are completely opposite of what I have asked (“two drivers that had mutual respect and who were team players”)

    OK, I didn’t read that part. If so, you can scrap Senna-Prost, Mansell-Piquet, and Hamilton-Alonso off my list. :p

    Hakkinen/Coulthard has to top the list if we’re talking about the modern era.

    I would agree with Fangio/Moss, I think Prost and Lauda got on ok as teammates too?
