Hamness should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
Stirling Moss
Jim Clark
John Surtees
Tom Pryce
Jean Alesi

Listed in no particular order but they were all drivers (that I was lucky enough to see on many occasions) that stood out amongst their contemporaries. Many others since have gone on to greater things if their win ratios , total wins, championships etc. are taken into account but I still dont place them above my 5 choices . Maybe close but not above.

Wow! What a question! Only five, ehh. Well being pretty ancient means I have a bit of an odd list and in no particular order:

Mario Andretti - peerless in American and darn fine in European racing: absolutely one of the most versatile drivers ever.

Michael Schumacher - a master behind the wheel - peerless team builder - perhaps unmatched on the technical (engineering) side.

Niki Lauda - "Super Rat." Extraordinary combination of brains, guile, skill and guts.

Graham Hill - personification of the "club" era of F1 before it went "corporate."

JM Fangio - the "benchmark" by which we still measure driver greatness.

Honourable mention: Clay Regazzoni, Ronnie Peterson, James Hunt, Jim Clark, Jody Scheckter, Reutemann, Emmo, Bruce McLaren, Mark Donohue, John Surtees, Black Jack Brabham, Jackie Stewart, JP "Jumper" Jarier, Phil Hill, Nigel Mansell...and, well, can I pick 15 instead of five???

You already did you old man It's easy to see that we, veterans or whatever people call people beyond 40 (see, I'm still young inside, and I have a reputation to keep) hardly can choose only 5 speed genius.

M Schumacher

I also have a lot of respect for Zanardi, although his days in F1 were not of the highest standards and in a car worth crap
