210 Formula1 drivers, 650 quotes The Book every F1 fan must have! The large number of drivers in the F1 history is surprising. In total, more than 800 drivers have participated in the F1 race weekends. We all remember the champions, but they would not exist without the other participants. Many of the drivers quotes have become classics and they symbolize the characteristics of the drivers. Michael Schumacher, Bruce McLaren and Ayrton Senna provide us with brilliant quotes related to the sport. On the other hand, some of the not so well-known drivers such as Johnnie Parsons, Hernando da Silva Ramos and Brian Redman, have been able to express their thoughts amazingly well. This book gives the voice to the drivers who deserve to be remembered.
Though it is fi fty years since he gained his two Formula 1 World Championship titles, the interest in Jim Clark has not waned. The Scotsman is still regarded as one of the best Grand Prix drivers ever. In the 1960s, Clark and his mentor, Colin Chapman, conquered the very pinnacles of single-seater racing with Clark winning the F1 World Championship twice and the Indy 500 once. All in all, he claimed more than one hundred victories at the wheel of a Lotus. This 400-page book from McKlein does not just tell the story of Clark s extraordinary racing career, it also portrays his personal life from A to Z. Author Graham Gauld followed the career of the Scotsman right from its very beginning. He has fi lled the roles of friend, photographer and reporter, and thus spent innumerable hours with Clark. This lavishly illustrated book contains many rare images from various well-known archives thus helping to complete an intimate portrait of a true sporting champion.
Peter Falk and Porsche, 33 years of passion and devotion: As their race director and one of the leading figures in their experimental department, Peter Falk contributed significantly to the character of the sports cars from Stuttgart-Zuffenhausen - both on the race track and on the road. From the first 901 right through to the very last air-cooled Type 993, every Porsche 911 bears the signature of Peter Falk. He joined the company in 1959 and quickly rose through the ranks to head various testing departments. In the mid-sixties, Falk also took over the tactical and technical leadership of the factory´s ´´Rennsport´´ team. In 1981, he was appointed as race director and led Porsche throughout its most successful era of competition. ´´His´´ team won at Le Mans, became World Sports Car Champions, conquered the Paris-Dakar Rally, and was victorious in Formula 1 with the TAG Turbo engine. In this book, Peter Falk tells of his years with Porsche. A highly respected person in the world of engineering, he relates how it all began at Porsche - when race drivers and engineers huddled together in a shepherd´s hut at Weissach to discuss suspensions, what the Porsche crew experienced during endless testing adventures in both the Arctic Circle and the Sahara, how the race cars at Le Mans roared to the start over country roads, and how a test drive with a Porsche 908 almost cost him his life. He shares his views on every Porsche race car, from the 904 Carrera GTS to the 962C, and describes the race drivers who competed during his reign: Hans Herrmann, Jacky Ickx, Vic Elford, Derek Bell, Hans-Joachim Stuck and Jochen Mass to name just a few. Falk provides a good, long look into the inner workings of Porsche. Peter Falk shared his personal Porsche stories and fascinating insights with the author Wilfried Müller. The images in this book come from Peter Falk´s private collection, from the Porsche Historical Archive in Stuttgart-Zuffenhausen, and from the vast cache at McKlein Photography. Along with the contributions from former colleagues and race drivers, these images and stories give an in-depth portrayal of Peter Falk´s 33 years with Porsche.
The voice of motor racing - and the man responsible for introducing millions of viewers to the previously inaccessible world of Formula 1 - tells the story of his incident-packed life. Murray Walker is an institution. When the man who made famous the catchphrase ´Unless I´m very much mistaken... I AM very much mistaken!!!´ announced that he was retiring as ITV´s Grand Prix commentator at the end of the 2001 season, the media reacted as if the sport itself was losing one of its biggest stars. His reputation for mistakes was the making of Walker. He was the fan who happened to be given the keys to the commentary box - and never wanted to give them back. His high-octane delivery kept viewers on the edge of their seats, while his passion for talking about the sport he loved was matched by an all-encompassing knowledge gained through hours of painstaking research before every race. In fact he´s a throwback to another age who managed to survive and indeed prosper from the revolutions in motor racing. Murray writes about his childhood and the influence that his father, British motorcycle champion Graham Walker, had on his career. Failing to match his father´s achievements on the track, he made a successful career for himself in advertising which catapulted him to the top of his profession. An offer from the BBC to take over the commentary seat for their F1 broadcasts was manna from heaven for Walker, and it wasn´t long before the infamous ´Murrayisms´ enlivened a sport which until then had been shrouded in a cloak of unfathomable technical jargon and mind-numbing statistics. He also talks about the biggest changes in the sport over the last 50 years, in particular the safety issues which came to the fore after the tragic death of Ayrton Senna. His partnership with James Hunt behind the microphone is the subject of some hilarious anecdotes, while his views on drivers make for fascinating listening. 1. Language: English.
