FORMULA 1 FANATIC is a passionate and evocative history of the ultimate in motor-racing from the early 1970s to the present. Vergeer interweaves the lives and deaths of such legendary drivers as Gilles 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. For anyone enthralled by motor-racing, FORMULA 1 FANATIC is a feast of recognition and nostalgia.
