In what AUTOSPORT is calling the most comprehensive survey of F1 drivers ever conducted, professionals, ranging from the oldest F1 grand prix winner still alive to Michael Schumacher to most of the current grid, were all asked to list their votes for the top ten greatest drivers in F1 history. The majority of the votes for the top spot went to Ayrton Senna, who topped Michael Schumacher and Juan Manuel Fangio, among others.  

We all have our opinions on who we think the top drivers are, but for someone who happens to think that Senna is the greatest, nothing can be better than having the support of the majority of 217 F1 drivers the next time a Formula 1 fan tries to tell me otherwise!
