Yes, almost all were driving terrible cars. As did SIR this year.

Booo, wrong answer (Sm112) Most are

a) gone
b) not missed
c) hardly remembered.

I am too lazy to make an all-time table, which would take the membership card back from the likes of Rubens, and leave us with the creme de la creme of the sport. Where Sirotkin of course would still firmly belong.
The number of points achieved depends mainly from variables different than driver's ability, most of all car competitiveness, so it can't really be used as a parameter to judge drivers. Had Sirotkin driven for Williams in 2017, he wouldn't belong to your club (Sm105)

Gotta love the shitty car excuse for Sirotkin.

Alonso was driving a Minardi. Ricciardo's first outing in F1 was in the HRT.

If someone will show the potential to be a great driver in the crappiest car he will make it in F1. If Sirotkin would have made an impact in F1 all the smart people would offer him a reserve or sim driver role immediately. Instead he was outscored by Stroll and crashed in the barrier on the Monaco's straight (!).
How is it an excuse? He had the worst car on the grid, that's a fact. And still he managed to show some speed in qualifying, something guys like Eriksson, Gutierrez or Bruno Senna, who had far more opportunities, never did. None is putting SIR in the same ballpark of Alonso or Ricciardo, but it is objectively unlucky to have your only shot at F1 in the grid's worst car.

As for your other point, the same can be of course said of Kubica - if he's still the great driver he was in the past, why has he gotten a drive only when he could put together some $$$?
