A representative from the current grid is always a good thing in these lists, and there's only one man fit for the job.
Pastor Maldonado is a talented driver who seems to switch off his brain far too frequently.
His first high-profile moment of madness was in 2005. During a Formula Renault 3.5 event at Monaco, Maldonado failed to slow down sufficiently at the scene of an accident and hit a marshal on the track.
He was banned for four races and barred for life from driving in the principality. But German newspaper Bild reported (h/t auto123 for the translation) that Maldonado's wealthy father managed to get the latter ban lifted by paying for the marshal's medical treatment.
His F1 life hasn't been much better.
In 2011, he was lucky to escape with just a five-place grid penalty for sideswiping Lewis Hamilton during qualifying at Spa. The move was deliberate, and he could easily have been excluded from the event. He finished the year with a single point.
But in 2012, he took it to a different level. He crashed out of the opening race on the last lap, and after brilliantly winning the Spanish Grand Prix, he was again involved in an incident in which he deliberately hit another car.
Sergio Perez was the victim this time, Monaco the venue, and the deliberate nature of the collision was even more obvious than it had been the previous year in Spa. The video is above.
Again he escaped with a slap on the wrist—and proceeded to run into Pedro de la Rosa at the first corner.
It was the start of a remarkable run of appalling driving.
In Canada, he crashed in qualifying. In Valencia, for the European Grand Prix, he crashed into Lewis Hamilton and cost himself third. In Britain, he hit Perez (accidentally this time).
At the German Grand Prix, he hit some debris from someone else's accident, and in Hungary he crashed into Paul di Resta.
The Belgian Grand Prix at Spa was next, and he received three penalties. First, he blocked Nico Hulkenberg in qualifying and was given a three-place grid penalty. Then he jumped the start (five place grid-drop for the next race), and a few laps later crashed into Timo Glock (five more).
The seven-race reign of terror ended when he finished an incident-free 11th in Italy.
But Maldonado continues to attract the wrong headlines. On Sky Sports' live qualifying coverage, he accused his Williams team of sabotaging his car at the 2013 United States Grand Prix. Then crashed on the first lap.
And at the 2014 Bahrain Grand Prix, he hit and rolled Esteban Gutierrez's Sauber.
One has to wonder if he'll ever tone it down. He'll be quite good if he can.
