Description

Experience the full career of racing legend Mario Andretti as recounted by the champion himself. The core of this biography is presented via interviews Andretti has given over the decades and expertly brought together by author Mario Donnini. Anecdotes, testimonials, quips, and jokes come together to give new light on motor racing history.

Mario Andretti is a legend in two worlds: Europe and the United States. Some of his accolades and championships include:

-1978 Formula 1 World Champion,
-1969 Indianapolis 500 Victor
-1965, 1966, 1984 IndyCar Champion
-1967, 1970, 1972 12 Hours of Sebring Victor
-24 Hours of Daytona Victor, and many other endurance classics

What counts most is that Mario is the last F1 world champion whose mother tongue is Italian, even if he did win the title when he was an American citizen. The volume contains hundreds of pictures--many of them previously unpublished--which illustrate the long and unrepeatable career of an all-time authentic icon of motor sport.
