One of the most respected figures in Formula 1 for nearly four decades, Ken Tyrrell discovered Jackie Stewart and went on to win 33 grands prix and three world championships as an independent team owner.
Tyrrell was held in high regard across the motor racing community. His biography, written by leading motor racing journalist Maurice Hamilton and with the blessing of his family, provides an excellent expose of the man himself, and an intriguing insight into the drama and excitement of the world of Formula 1.
The book examines Tyrrell's relationship with drivers such as Jody Scheckter, Ronnie Peterson and Stewart, and his vital role in the development of the sport. And it delves into the murkier side of F1 – the politics, the battles between the have's and the have-nots – as well as Tyrrell's moving battle against the cancer that eventually took his life.
Giorgio Piola, the Italian well-known TV journalist and expert in the Formula One, writes on the many technical aspects of the 2000 racing season giving an in-depth and accurate analysis of all F1 cars in the circus, team by team and race by race.
The volume describes the teams and drivers in the golden age of Formula 1: Ferrari, Brabham, Brm Marlboro, Jps Lotus, March / Politoys / Eifelland, Matra, Surtees / Pagnossin, Tecno Martini, Tyrrell and Yardley McLaren.
For motor racing enthusiasts he was one of the best drivers of all time, but even those, who have never been interested in engines, admired the incredible strength that brought him back to the track after only 40 days after the Nurburgring accident. In the book there is not only the pilot Lauda. There is also a man. With his great loves, Marlene and Birgit, his children, his friendship with Luca Cordero di Montezemolo that led him to call Lukas his firstborn, the diseases (he will undergo three transplants) and the personal battle to change the rules on safety on the track .
