From the vast number of drivers who have competed for Mercedes-Benz and its ancestors in the past 115 years, legends such as Hermann Lang, Karl Kling, Juan Manuel Fangio and Michael Schumacher stand out. However, history should not forget all those other works drivers and privateers whose exploits added to the fame of the company at the wheel of formula, sports racing and touring cars; drivers whose names have often unjustly faded from view. Famous or obscure, the 240 fastest of these drivers are presented in this volume, which has been compiled in close co-operation with Mercedes-Benz Classic.  This book is the who's who of the four-wheel sport.
Hartmut Lehbrink is a Grand Prix journalist who has actively been involved with the sport his whole life.  Early in his career, Mercedes-Benz became one of his favorite teams and since early in his life he has documented the exploits of his heroes throughout several decades.
