    Chris Amon 1971 Italy? He was not even leading the race and in that pack of cars, there was no guarantee he would have led the last lap. Clermont-Ferrand France 1972. Pole and leading the race handily when he got a tire puncture. Lost over a minute in the pits and charged back to 3rd place, 31 seconds behind the winner and 4 seconds out of 2nd place. THAT was a Top Five drive.

    Everyone remembers to talk about the 1994 season being robbed from Damon, but really, he often outperformed Prost in 1993, and had those earlier mechanical failures at San Marino, Spain, Britain and Germany not gone against him, it would have been a very different story.

    How many times did Mika's engine blow up while leading in 1997? i think it was at least 3 times. His first two wins were gifted to him, but I don't think anybody faulted him for that after all those engine blowouts.

    Salo should have been higher on the list. I'm not one to cry about team orders, but he missed out on his win for the least inevitable reason in this list and unlike most of the other drivers featured, he never did get his maiden F1 win.

      @Gustavo Marques Same, I was so disappointed when I saw that it was Damon Hill. Senna was actually in the lead when the race was stopped. He only lost due to a rule that says whoever was leading the last completed lap wins the race. So, Prost won. Smh
