Description - Formula 1 Fanatic by Koen Vergeer

This is a passionate and evocative history of Formula 1 motor-racing from the early 1980s to 2002. Koen Vergeer interweaves the lives and deaths of such legendary drivers as Gille Villeneuve and Ayrton Senna with the progress of his own longtime obsession. His accounts of the titanic fights between the top drivers - like the "professor" Alain Prost (cool and precise) and the "son of God" Senna (fast but unpredictable) or Damon Hill (burdened by his father's reputation) and Michael Schumacher (infallible) - are matched by the ferocious rivalry between the top teams.
