Believe it or not, this list was actually pretty easy to make because no racers have been very close to these four in the Formula One standings.
1. Sebastian Vettel – Well, this one’s easy. Vettel has been one of the best racers on the circuit for years now and has shown no signs of slowing down. How can the guy who has won the last three championships not be number one on this list?
2. Kimi Raikkonen – It seemed for a while like Kimi had lost his touch, but for two years now it’s clear that he is still one of the best racers out there. Vettel is in a class of his own, but Kimi might just be the best of the rest.
3. Fernando Alonso – The two-time champion continues to be one of the most popular Formula One racers because of his fearlessness and his ability to consistently be in the top 3 at just about every race. It would surprise no one if he wins at least one more championship before his career is over.
4. Lewis Hamilton – Hamilton may be the youngest on this list, but he has proven that at times he’s as good as anyone on the circuit. His first and only championship may have been back in 2008, but if he can stay out of the tabloids and focus on racing, there’s a definite chance that he can be champion again one day.
