From the first championship, won by Nino Farina with his Alfa and his famous cigar between his lips, to Hamilton's heroic exploits, taking in en route all the legends of Formula 1: Ascari, Fangio, Lauda, Senna, Prost and Schumacher are just some of the protagonists in this book. A spectacular account of the winners, their extraordinary cars and their duels, but also a story of big defeats and great heroes who, while they didn't win the championship, still became legends: Gilles Villeneuve above all.
"I believe that every reader will have the opportunity to find the salt of their passion in this volume, what triggered this curiosity for the first time, this interest, this emotion and that which continues to feed hopes, tensions, ambitions, and disappointments. The champions that marked a day or an era with their courage, their talent, and on occasion with their sacrifice." Stefano Domenicali
