    I'd have Clark in the top three. I don't disagree with Senna at one.
    Comparing drivers from different eras is an entirely subjective exercise.

    If there were F1 before WW2 then Tazio Nuvolari would be my number 1.

    I have a colleague who has collected a large archive of F1 footage. He has some incredible in car film going right back to the pre-war era. The scariest footage is of either Reutemann or Jones wrestling a Williams around the circuit in Las Vegas.
    Whether the cars were harder to drive or not is a moot point. They definitely required a lot more work from the drivers.
    Cheers
