Lewis Hamilton has been voted the 17th best F1 driver of all time despite having only been in the sport for 3 years.  In the poll, Hamilton has been ranked alongside the likes of Sir Jackie Stewart, Stirling Moss and Nigel Mansell.  

The poll, conducted by Autosport magazine, was voted upon by virtually all living motor sport drivers, 217 in total, and places the youngest ever F1 champion firmly in the top-20 of F1 legends.  The only living driver still on the grid to out-rank the Brit is Fernando Alonso who was placed ninth by his peers. read more >>
