My Ride: my favorite two feet
Who else was successful accross multiple platforms of racing? I don't have that level of driver knowledge but perhaps others will chime in and spur the debate (and subsequent google searches) on.

That's why i picked Andretti. He was successful at all levels, not just 1 (IE Senna) Senna was a king of F1. Andretti was king of IndyCar, NASCAR and F1.

I would love to watch a movie about Mario's entire racing career, covering all of his different motorsport history.

My top 5 list

1: Mario
2: Senna
3: Vettel
4: Schumi
5: Loeb

Senna was inhuman, and thats a cool vid. But any of the drivers being seriously mentioned ITT could hustle a car around a track in ways that would scare any of us.

Hell, Mario's laps at Le Mans at the ripe old age of 60 probably would leave mere mortals gasping for breath.

But it is true, comparing F1 and rally and the like is tough in terms of drivers skill, a convincing argument could be said about most auto racing
