Therefore, we have decided to prepare the following article which includes 15 best formula 1 racers who have ever appeared. Well, if you’re ready, let’s get started.
1. Sebastian Vettel
We start with one of the most famous drivers currently. This is the driver of the Scuderia Ferrari Formula One racing team whose name is Sebastian Vettel. Although the last few seasons on the track have been dominated by Mercedes and their drivers, there is no doubt that Sebastian is still one of the best F1 racers to have competed in the past two decades.
This guy is a four-time Formula One champion and has won titles in the series from 2010 to 2013. Quite simply, his talent was evident even before the Ferrari era. He then drove for the Red Bull racing team and also won all the championships with them. It can be said that Vettel helped his former team to become one of the best in very hard competition. Another record set by the German is that he is the youngest driver ever to become a champion (only 22 years old).
