F1: Schumacher Seen as Ferrari’s Greatest Driver
Michael Schumacher has been voted the greatest Ferrari driver of all-time in a reader poll conducted by F1 Racing Mag, topping the list ahead of Sebastian Vettel, Kimi Raikkonen and Gilles Villeneuve.
To celebrate 70 years of Ferrari, F1 Racing asked its readers and the online forum of FerrariChat to vote for the greatest Ferrari driver of all-time.
To narrow the criteria, the voting was limited to the 38 drivers who have won a world championship grand prix for Ferrari since Y 1950 and the results have been unveiled in this month’s edition of F1 Racing, that went on sale in the UK Thursday, 16 November.
Thousands took part in the online poll and Mr. Schumacher was so popular, he registered over 50% of the entire vote from the global fan-base.
Of the F1 drivers still racing, Fernando Alonso was rated 6th in the list, while current Ferrari racer Sebastian Vettel was 10th and Felipe Massa was ranked 12th.
