The quest to establish the GOAT - the Greatest Of All Time - has an irresistible pull in all sports. F1 is no exception, and those countries lucky enough to have produced multiple champions can also argue over their greatest sons. Ten of the 32 drivers to have been crowned F1 world champion are British, but of those - who is the best?
In many ways, it's a fatuous debate that can never produce a truly objective answer. But that's not the point. Such arguments lie at the heart of the enduring appeal of F1. The answer matters less than the journey required to get there.
In terms of victories, reigning world champion Lewis Hamilton is building a strong case to be considered the best of British. Since winning last year's US GP, where he took his 32nd victory, he has been at the top of the British winners table, and will surely add substantially to his current tally of 40 (before the Singapore GP).
