MotoGP - Stoner
F1 - Hamilton
Football - Rivers (SD)
Basketball - Labron
Baseball - Arod
IMO, Hamilton has mellowed a lot in the last couple of years. Yes, he can be terse when asked the same dumb question over and over. There was a very nice and human one hour program on him last year. Not the same guy as the F1 driver.
Now, iffen you want to cite one F1 driver with attitude, it has to be Schumacher. A prick from A to Z, win at all costs, even if it means intentionally bumping another driver off the track. I am sooooo happy he hasn't done shit the last three years and that we'll finally not have to listen to him blame everything/everyone else for his failures.
