“The most thrilling show on earth,”
- No book can come closer to the roaring fascination of this sport
- A highlight for all fans of Formula 1 and its rich history of triumph and tragedy
is how Bernie Ecclestone describes Formula 1, which constantly brings forth new heroes who put a face to this dynamic sport. The spectrum ranges from the charismatic maturity of a Juan Manuel Fangio to the impetuous youthfulness of a Sebastian Vettel.
Drawing on his experience of over five decades, Rainer Schlegelmilch portrays all 32 world champions since 1950. He recalls glorious triumphs like those of serial winner Michael Schumacher, as well as the tragic accidents of drivers like Jim Clark and Ayrton Senna. Over a span of more than sixty years you are right there amidst the action—in the pit lane or even in the cockpit of a car.
All this makes Formula 1 World Champions a very special journey through time.
