That's probably a better question as it defines the topic question more.
Picking a driver to pull performance out of a car, with regards to who is getting the maximum (or as close to it as humanly possible) most (definitely not all) of the time.
All time: I still say Senna and not because he's an obvious choice, I genuinely believe he had a freakish quality to find somethign that wasn't there to anyone else.
Current crop: Hard to go past Alonso. He just keeps proving it doesn't he.
Edit: qualified the question.
