"The most thrilling show- on Barth as Bernie Ecclestone describes Formula 1 in his foreword, constantly brings forth new heroes. Drivers who stand out because of their special skills, great courage and willingness to push things to the limit at all times. The 32 world champions since 1950 have all reached the Olympian heights of Formula 1 in their own way. It is they who put a face to this dynamic sport. The spectrum ranges from the charismatic maturity of a Juan Manuel Fangio to the impetuous youthfulness of a Sebastian Vettel. Drawing on their esperience of over five decades, Rainer W Schlegelmilch and Hartmut Lehblink portray the giants of the race track. Stunning photographs and well-informed texts bring glorious triumphs like those of serial winner Michael Schumacher to vibrant lite, as well as recalling the tragic accidents of drivers like Jim Clark and Ayrton Senna. Over a span of more than sixty years you are right there amidst the actio, in the pit lane or even in the cockpit of a car. You can trace the development of the racing car, of the staging of racing events and, last but by no means least, of the people who have left their stamp on Formula 1. All this makes "Formula 1 World Champions" a very special journey through time.

The greatest duel in FORMULA 1 history: the 1976 season between Austrian Niki Lauda and Britain's James Hunt. As the '75 season ended, Hunt was out of FORMULA 1 racing while Lauda was world champion and the odds-on favorite for ’76 with a year’s contract ahead of him and Enzo Ferrari begging him to sign a multi-year deal. James Hunt, without a drive until Emerson Fittipaldi broke his McLaren contract, grabbed the McLaren drive with both hands and the help of friend John Hogan and Marlboro cigarettes. The result? Two drivers in an epic sixteen-race battle across the globe for the '76 title, ultimately decided by a single point. Fame, wealth, drugs, sex, and the rest of globetrotting 1970s FORMULA 1 racing are encompassed in the Lauda vs. Hunt duel. At the '76 German Grand Prix, Lauda nearly died in a fiery crash, only to emerge six weeks later, severe burns on his face and head, to pursue his rivalry with Hunt. It all came down to the last race, a rain-soaked affair in Japan, where Hunt won the championship by the slimmest possible margin. The book is a study in contrasts during an era of Brut aftershave and disco sex parties. James Hunt, legendary philanderer and FORMULA 1 rock star, versus supernatural racer Niki Lauda, who in '75 set the first sub-seven minute lap around the Ring.
