Overview

Formula 1 Fanatic is a passionate and evocative history of the ultimate in motor racing from the early 1970s to the present. Vergeer cleverly interweaves the lives and deaths of such legendary drivers as Jochen Rindt, Ronnie Peterson, Gilles Villeneuve, and Ayrton Senna with the progress of his boyhood obsession. His accounts of the titanic fights between the top drivers—like the "professor" Alain Prost and the "son of God" Senna, or Damon Hill and Michael Schumacher—are only matched by the even more ferocious rivalry between the top teams. For anyone enthralled by motor racing, Formula 1 Fanatic is a feast of recognition and nostalgia. For those who know nothing about Formula 1, it explains a mystery.
