Vite di Corsa, the book that appeared in its first edition in 2016 and written by Pino Allievi – one of the best known and most appreciated journalists in Motorsport – reappears today in the new series “I Tascabili“ to speak to an even wider audience about Formula 1, racing and not only.
There are many stories in the twenty-seven stories collected in this volume, unpublished stories, because experienced firsthand by the author together with the various characters, pilots, managers and more, who appear in the book.
Sometimes hilarious, dramatic or even surreal portraits arise from these encounters, starring champions such as Lewis Hamilton, Sebastian Vettel, Michael Schumacher, Niki Lauda, Jean Alesi, James Hunt, Gilles Villeneuve or Clay Regazzoni, but also strong personalities such as Enzo Ferrari, Sergio Marchionne, Bernie Ecclestone, Flavio Briatore.
There is no shortage of “people” from industry, finance, politics, entertainment, who loved racing and wanted to experience it up close, such as Avvocato Agnelli, Cesare Romiti, George Harrison and even Carlos Menem, President of the Republic Argentina.
And still others, the ones you don’t expect, like Diego Armando Maradona, protagonist of a daring interview to say the least, or the astronaut Pete Conrad, who set foot on the moon, also stepping into the role of pilot.
Here are the Lives, always rigorously… on the run, that come to life in these pages.
