Maybe my use of the word 'against' was incorrect - or implied a negative connotation which was not the intention.

I think what I was looking for was more of an understanding of why, in a head-to-head, someone would opt for Cevert and Hulme instead of Hamilton?
And when it comes to Senna, what would tip the balance to Hamilton?

I've seen the comments in other sports, when 'great' performers are being considered. Sometimes it boils down to the fact that all you can do is beat those who you are up against. We see it in the DOTR votes regularly - comments along the lines of 'I can't vote for XXX because they were expected to win'. It almost comes across as the fact that we naturally support an underdog?

As to these two pairings, I suggest that they were votes against Hamilton.

For some votants you're probably right not forgetting that some will see a good opportunity to do justice to a driver or player, injured, deceased or as you say underrated. What we call in french "refaire le match" ou "refaire le match après le match", talking about foot-ball/soccer.

The example of François Cevert can lengthen the list of what ifs I fear. Hulme and Hamilton, in this case could and can thoroughly express themselves. Not Cevert who was respectfully waiting in the shade for Sir Jackie to retire. Hamilton can be the goat, Cevert could have been to some people's eyes.

Usually the best drivers end up in the top seats anyway. But then there are those that end up in the right place at the wrong time (Amon/Gurney) or those that are killed or injured before their time (Cevert, Bellof, Kubica etc.), so it's not always the case
