British Grand Prix greats

Who is the best British Formula 1 driver of all time?

Is it their overall skill on the track, their legacy, or is it simply their number of wins during their career?

We’ve combined all three in our interactive graphic below – but like our England’s most decorated football team infographic – our drivers make the starting line-up, only if they’ve been decorated with an honour by Her Majesty the Queen.

Our racing greats include John Surtees, Graham Hill, Jim Clark, Jackie Stewart, Nigel Mansell, Damon Hill, Stirling Moss, David Coulthard, and two current drivers Jenson Button and Lewis Hamilton.

You can click each driver’s racing helmet to read their official Gazette citation, and when you’re done why not share with your Formula 1-loving friends and family on social media? If you’ve got a blog or a website, we’ve also given you an embed code to use.

We’d love to know what you think – message us on Twitter @TheGazetteUK and let us know who your greatest British driver is.
