British 1950s racing legend tops our F1 guru's list of all-time F1 greats.Grand prix guru Alan Henry has sparked debate by placing Stirling Moss at the top of his list of the greatest F1 drivers. In his new book, The Top 100 F1 Drivers of All Time, Henry cites Moss's astonishing versatility when racing alongside the more dynamic Jim Clark, whom he places second."I'm deeply honoured," said Moss. "I can see it's going to start a lot of arguments and it's a tough mantle to carry. So many others were so good. Look at Michael Schumacher. You've got to say that what he achieved at Ferrari was fantastic. No one else could have done it."Moss raced in F1 from 1951 to 1961 and won 16 F1 Grand Prix, finishing on the podium 24 times.
