Best driver never to have won a Grand Prix

Inspired by the ‘best driver never to win a championship’ thread: who is/was the best driver never to have won a GP?
I’ve heard many stories about Chris Amon and his dreadful luck but I’ve never seen any of the races in question. Therefore my vote’s got to go to Heidfeld – consistent and reliable, a number of inspired strategy calls in changeable weather, and some fantastic double overtakes over the years!
Though I imagine some may disagree… (why am I thinking of PM?)6th January 2011, 19:12 at 7:12 pm #157473sw6569Participant
Martin Brundle6th January 2011, 19:14 at 7:14 pm #157474RIISEMember
A bit of a cliche, but Brundle, Or Verstappen.6th January 2011, 19:37 at 7:37 pm #157475Tom L.Participant
Verstappen? Better than Heidfeld and Brundle? What made you choose him?6th January 2011, 19:40 at 7:40 pm #157476IcthyesParticipant
My vote goes to Brundle too. And Nick Heidfeld. Just to annoy PM. Well, partly.6th January 2011, 20:15 at 8:15 pm #157477CalumParticipant
The pick the best of a bad bunch…. thread!!!
I wanted to say Oliver Panis – then I remembered luck can sometimes favour these drivers. ;)
I think it’s Nico Rosberg – but that will change next year!6th January 2011, 20:25 at 8:25 pm #157478RIISEMember
Maybe we should make a “Best driver to never get a podium” thread. =)6th January 2011, 20:52 at 8:52 pm #157479David-AParticipant
Nicholas Heidfeld.6th January 2011, 20:55 at 8:55 pm #157480TodfodParticipant
I would go with Nick Heidfeld. Nico Rosberg will win a race at some point of time.. but looks like Quick Nick’s career is over without a win.6th January 2011, 21:03 at 9:03 pm #157481AnonymousInactive
Tommy Byrne and Stefan Bellof….Two drivers who potentially could have been world champions…6th January 2011, 21:33 at 9:33 pm #157482James_mcParticipant
Chris Amon. Makes Mark Webber look like he’s stumbled upon a field of 4-leaf clover….6th January 2011, 21:37 at 9:37 pm #157483Adrian JParticipant
What? You don’t agree?6th January 2011, 21:44 at 9:44 pm #157484James_mcParticipant
Alan McNish. A god at Le Mans, and was unlucky to be stuck in a crappy Toyota with crappier management for his only time in F1.
I would also say Rosberg, but he’ll get one sooner rather than later.7th January 2011, 0:57 at 12:57 am #157485AnonymousInactive
I always rated Mika Salo as a driver. Dunno why.7th January 2011, 2:07 at 2:07 am #157486wasiF1Participant
Current field I have to say Nico Rosberg,he is very high class driver hope as he said yesterday that he wins a race in 2011.
