    My list considers who’ve done well this century. As of today:

    1. Michael Schumacher

    2. Fernando Alonso (believe it or not, he’s the only guy other than Schumacher who’s won multiple titles this century)

    3. Kimi Raikkonen

    4. Lewis Hamilton

    5. Jenson Button

    6. Mika Hakkinen

    7. Sebastian Vettel

    8. Mark Webber

    9. Felipe Massa

    10. Rubens Barrichello

    Honorable Mentions: David Coulthard, Juan Pablo Montoya, Robert Kubica, Ralf Schumacher, Jarno Trulli. The Jacques Villenueve of the 21st century was a pale shadow of the Jacques of the 20th.

    If Webber wins the title this year, he will move up to 6th for me, ahead of Hakkinen (who like Villeneuve saw his best form in the 20th century rather than the 21st). If Vettel wins, I may actually move him up to 5th, ahead even of Button.

    Kinda difficult – Hakkinen was a top driver who drove in the 21st Century but his best performances came just before it. So he had the calibre but not the results.

    Has to be Schumacher at 1 and Alonso at 2. After that it’s kinda difficult, but for me it goes like this:

    3. Hamilton

    4. Montoya

    5. Raikkonen

    6. Button

    7. Webber

    8. Vettel

    9. Massa

    10. Barrichello

    The likes of Hakkinen and Villeneuve all had great drives since 2000 but I haven’t included them becauce their best was in the last century. DC would probably be 11th on my list.

    Yeah I just think that Alonso and Hamilton have been performing better in bad cars and that they have won a lot of races with more limited resources e.g. no tyres developed according to their specific wishes, less testing etc.

    Good point about Fisi, SLR. I’d swap him for Trulli in my Top 15.
