I think the only driver in the league of Aryton Senna is Val Rossi as far as talent is concerned.

cant agree more!!!but remember its two different things driving a f1 car and sbks..so comparison cant be made unless both are tried and tested on the same piece of machinery..remember shinya nakano tried his hands at f1 but was not able to salvage anything..he then tried sbks and is far more successful than he was at f1..so if the same driver/rider can achieve two different levels of success in two competetions then its not fare to compare two greats from two different sports i think..

Except Rossi has won in the wet in the past as well as present, having raced in wet myself in WERA, can tell you that not a single 2 wheel rider is happy in wet, something about having too many HP and not enough traction being a dangerous combo, even a slight spill will make you loose the race.

You probably know this already but this precision is what earned him the nickname of Professor.

Speaking of precision around a circuit, I'd say David Coulthard with a perfectly set up car comes very close - "inch perfect on the track".

Note: My mention of DC is only on the note of precision and not on fame or greatness.

With all the advancement in technologies and even competetors over the years, it is difficult to compare all the drivers from yesteryears and today. My List:
1. Ayrton Senna
2. Jackie Stewart
3. Alain Prost
4. Michael Schumacher
(I'm sure that as years pass on, Schumi could go up the list... or maybe not. time will tell)

Aryton Senna-- in terms of talent... arguably the BEST and MOST GIFTED EVER !!!!!
Alan Prost... even he had to say that senna could do things with the car that he could not belive. .. that statement seals it for me... senna NO 1
Micheal Schumacher
these are my best 3 in the last 18 years or so..

MS all the way!!!! I mean, when in history of Motor racing have the rules been changed solely to curb the sheer dominance of one man! I think that says it all.

Sheer dominance?!
It is not as simple as saying that he was dominating everything and that was the reason for changing rules.

Take the tyre example...bridgestone saying they'll supply custom tyres only to Ferrari forced many teams to switch to Michellin.. and that was a big adv for Ferrari! So Ferrari has been a dominating force in the last few years when other teams suffered! 5 champioships and dominance happened at that time.

It was more of Ferrari managing to get many things working in their favor and the slump that other teams were in that helped Ferrari to dominate!

All time fav has been Senna no doubt about that!

The driver who set pole in Monaco with a one second margin, is according to me the greatest F1 driver ever. The same driver tried to win the Monaco GP without changing tyres and almost did. He drove against the likes of Nigel Mansell, Nelson Piquet, Niki Lauda and Alain Prost and beat them sometime or the other. Can you tell me which "greats" MS has driven against? That Senna remains the best "driver" there ever is undisputed.
