Description

Formula One is one of the biggest, wealthiest and most controversial sports on the planet. Yet it was created by a small clique of extraordinary men, whose mission and passion was to win, sometimes at all costs. They were from vastly different backgrounds but shared one quality that counted above all others: they were driven. In this account, the lives of these men are revealed with all of their quirks and extravagant living. It tells how they transformed Formula One from a niche sport played out on primitive tracks surrounded hay bales and grass verges into a 1 billion empire inhabiting vast palaces of entertainment all over the world.
