Stirling Moss leads Tony Brooks at the 1958 German Grand Prix.

Recently, we ranked all 32 Formula One world champions. However, more than 700 other drivers have started a grand prix since the championship began in 1950.

Now we want to know: Who is the best among those drivers who have never won a world championship?

Meanwhile, Ronnie Peterson died following an accident at the 1978 Italian Grand Prix, only two races away from possibly being crowned champion.

The next slide outlines the methodology we will use to rank these drivers.
