 I assume you're asking about all time start leaders?
Of the active drivers, (or supposedly active)
here is the list, atthe start of 1995.

Mansell        185
Berger         163
Brundle        131
Martini        110
Alesi           85
Herbert         63
Lehto           62
A.Suzuki        60
Comas           59
Schumacher      52
Morbidelli      50
HAkkinen        48
Blundell        46
Katayama        46
Bernard         45
Larini          44

And so on.
Sometimes there is confusion over what constitutes a "start".
For instance, last race, Luca Badoer's car was too damaged
to be repaired for the restart.
Does he get "credit" for starting the race or not?
Some stat books dispute this stuff, so that's why there
are occasional discrepancies in their stats.
Trivial stuff though.

Brundle and Berger both started in 1984.  I'm not sure which had his
ride first.

 Oh, I get it now!
A little slow on my part I guess.......

First races for drivers:

Mansell - Austria GP, 1980
Brundle - Brazil GP, 1984
Berger - Austria GP, 1984
Martini - Brazil GP, 1985
Moreno - Austria GP, 1987
Suzuki - Japan GP, 1988
Herbert - Brazil GP, 1989
Gachot - French GP, 1989
Bernard - French GP, 1989
Alesi - Fench GP, 1989

This completes all active drivers (Bernard will be active soon)
who started their F1 career, before 1990.
They had to qualify for the race, not just practice.

trivia question:
  After Nigel Mansell, who was the next of the current drivers to drive
  an F1 car?
Not "all time start leaders", not "first time qualifiers", but "the
next driver to DRIVE not race an F1 car".]

Only a wild guess, but didn't Moreno drive a F1 car in 1982 or 1983?
I have a recollection of Roberto driving the Lotus in 1982, in place
of Mansell who broke/dislocated his wrist in the Canadian GP after
clouting the rear of Giacomelli's Alfa.  I believe he failed to
qualify in the only GP he entered.  If I remember correctly, Geoff
Lees also drove as a sub, and managed to qualify.
Anyways, just a guess.

Moreno tried to qualify the Lotus once in '82, as a stand-in, but failed;
he didn't get into F1 ``properly'' until 1987, and didn't get a regular
drive until 1989, after winning the F3000 championship in a Reynard in '88.
