It has always been said that history is written by winners. And to some extent that is how it is. The same is true in the world of sport, especially in the F1 circus. Because it comes down to it, great books and in-depth interviews are in the main dedicated to those drivers and manufacturers who have proved capable of winning at least one World Championship title. And yet a different, fresh approach is possible. Mid-way between the theories of Alessandro Manzoni and Akira Kurosawa. Between those who have said that contributions to history can be made by secondary figures and those who have held that the nobility of defeat has rendered immense certain personal stories otherwise forgotten but in reality unforgettable. Mario Donnini, for quarter of a century a writer and journalist with Autosprint, has to this brought to bear his experience of two decades of interview for the “Cuore da Corsa” column to recount touching, revelatory and thrilling anecdotes, narratives, reflections and life stories. Those of almost 40 Formula 1 drivers who never won a championship title, but tried. Drivers sampled from A to Z such as Stirling Moss, Jan Lammers, Chris Amon, Jacky Ickx, Riccardo Patrese and René Arnoux, but also constructors like Gian Paolo Dallara and Gianfranco Pederzani. From the 1950s to the early 1980s. Because racing is not just about winners. And perhaps the greatest feat is being that of a minor hero who proudly tells his story.
