After clinching his fifth world title in October 2018, Lewis Hamilton is now the joint second most successful driver of all time. He has accelerated into pole position, having long surpassed legends Damon Hill, Nigel Mansell and Jackie Stewart to become Britain's most successful Formula One driver. Hamilton's debut season in 2007 won him fans around the world, and his place in Formula One history was sealed the following year when he became the youngest-ever world champion. In the years since, he has created headlines on and off the track with his rivalries with Nico Rosberg and Sebastian Vettel and relationships that have landed him on the front pages of the tabloids. However, despite the media glare, he has continued to prove his incredible talent and tenacity and remain utterly dominant in his sport. In this insightful biography, bestselling sports author Frank Worrall traces the slipstream of Hamilton's incredible career as the fastest driver on the planet. This is the ultimate story of the driver who has gone from being the rookie Sir Jackie Stewart said 'has rewritten the rule book' to a world champion five times over, becoming Britain's greatest ever driver and, arguably, the finest racer Formula One has ever seen.

Lewis Hamilton is the record-breaking young British hero of Formula 1. His phenomenal debut season was nothing short of a revelation, coming through against all the odds to dominate and revolutionise the world of motor racing. It was an outcome no one could have predicted: thrown in at the deep end 'on a mighty whim' by McLaren team owner Ron Dennis, not only did Lewis have to combat his own nerves and fears, he had to overcome a dissenter within his own camp. With behind-the-scenes insight into the intense rivalry between Hamilton and his teammate Fernando Alonso which threatened to derail the young Briton's dream, and the low-down on the 'spy-gate' scandal, this biography describes how Lewis handled the intensity of the media scrum around his relationship with Nicole Scherzinger and kept his dignity to emerge triumphant as he racked up sensational wins around the world. Now he has even joined iconic speedsters Damon Hill and Bradly Wiggins as a BBC Sports Personality of the Year winner. From his momentous clinching of the 2014 World Championship in Abu Dhabi to the bitter rivalry with former friend Nico Rosberg - which culminated in the German engineering a deliberate high-speed crash - bestselling sports author Frank Worrall traces the slipstream of Hamilton's incredible career as the fastest driver on the planet. This is the ultimate story of the driver whom Sir Jackie Stewart says 'has re-written the rookie rule book'. But he is a rookie no more. Lewis Hamilton has accelerated into pole position to be called Britain's greatest ever race driver.

Fittipaldi Automotive was a Brazilian Formula One team Formed in 1974 by Wilson Fittipaldi. Sometimes known as Copersucar (Their first main sponsor). Fittipaldi Automotive was the only Brazilian Formula One team in the history of the sport. The team was based in São Paulo 10,000 kilometers away from the Motorsport central in the UK. Details about the entire process of reconstituting the FD-01, or Fitti-1, depicting how Dana Brazil's employees went around the world after components and fragments to re-create with complete authenticity the 6,000 parts of this Formula-1 gem. In addition to recounting the recovery of the first models of the Fittipaldi team and the restatement of the restored Fitti-1 at the Interlagos racetrack, the author goes back in time and unveils the beginning of the Fittipaldi brothers' passion for motorsports, at a time when they made sport steering wheels. This book also tells how the Fittipaldi youngsters started preparing karts, which entered Brazil in 1960 and created other successful prototypes on the Brazilian tracks, such as the Fitti-Porsche and the surprising twin-engine Volkswagen Beetle.

This is the story of the boy who proves fairytales do come true. The boy who grew up on a council estate, who, at the tender age of 22, came through against all the odds to dominate and revolutionise the world of motor racing. Thrown in at the deep end 'on a mighty whim' by F1 team owner Ron Dennis, Lewis Hamilton began his 2007 debut season with several podium finishes - and is surely in the running for the BBC's Sports Personality of the Year 2007. He has done better than anyone could have predicted: not only has he had to combat his own nerves and fears; he has had to overcome a dissenter within his own camp. With behind-the-scenes insight into the intense rivalry between Hamilton and his team mate Fernando Alonso which threatened to derail the young Briton's dream, bestselling sports author, Frank Worrall describes how the rookie rose above his critics, keeping his dignity and emerging triumphant as he racked up sensational wins around the world.But the boy-wonder's stellar rise through the motor racing ranks from karting to the hotly contested F3 Superprix and onto the F1 podium was by no means straightforward. Lewis' racing career began aged just six, when his father, holding down three jobs to support his son's blossoming career, bought him his first go-kart. Life was always a challenge - against the backdrop of racial inequality, Lewis was faced with the heartache of his parents' divorce and his anguish for half-brother Nicholas, who suffers from cerebral palsy, but these setbacks only made Hamilton more determined to succeed. The breakthrough came when he was ten on meeting McLaren boss Ron Dennis at an awards ceremony. Lewis told him, 'I'm going to race for you one day...I'm going to race for McLaren.' Two years later he contacted Dennis and the big man signed him to McLaren's development programme.By 2007 he could hold him back no longer. This is the remarkable story of the boy who has been called 'The Tiger Woods of F1'. Hamilton's is a tale of glory against the odds which reads like the script of a Hollywood movie. But this is not fiction: this is the real-life story of a record-breaking season and a legend in the making.

This book started as a self-serving exercise to personally organize the major details and interesting facts of each Indianapolis 500 over the hundred-plus-year history of the greatest race in the world. For many of us passionate racing fans who have attended a multitude of 500s, there is a tendency for the details of the races to (somewhat) blend together. I hope this book will help to provide clarity in this regard as well as educate. During high school, many of us chose to use CliffsNotes to assist in the education process. This book is somewhat patterned after that concept. It falls somewhere between Donald Davidson and Rick Schaffer—the best and by far the most detailed book on the history of the Indianapolis 500—and a multitude of pictorial books with limited information. I hope it will prove to be an easy read with entertaining and educational information.

Four-time Formula One Drivers' Champion Alain Prost is one of the best racing drivers of all time. Having discovered karting at the age of 14 during a family holiday, Prost progressed through motorsport's junior ranks, winning the French and European Formula Three championships, before joining the McLaren Formula One team in 1980 at the age of 24. In his six seasons with McLaren, Alain Prost won 30 races and three driving titles and in 1985 he became the first French World Champion. In 1986 he became the first back-to-back champion since Jack Brabham 26 years earlier. In 1987, his 28th Grand Prix victory beat Jackie Stewart's 14-year-old record. However, in 1988 his brilliant new team mate Ayrton Senna won eight races and the driving title. Thus began the sensational rivalry that conspired to push two of the sport's greatest drivers to unprecedented heights of success and controversy, and the most bitter feud in Formula One history.
