James Hunt: The Biography

James Hunt: The Biography - Also from the UK  - Canada
Gerald Donaldson / Paperback / April 2009

James Hunt was a towering personality with a commanding presence, a hugely glamorous public figure who brought Formula One motor racing to the attention of a whole new audience.

Triumphing against all odds to become World Drivers' Champion with McLaren in 1976, Hunt sank into a period of decadence and depression, only to be rejuvenated as he found true love for the first time.

With that came personal contentment and a renewed zest for living, so that one of the most colourful and controversial figures in Grand Prix racing is best remembered by those close to him as a fun-loving, caring man who had a genuinely uplifting presence - qualities that shine through in Gerald Donaldson's compelling and moving account of his life.

Eddie Irvine, Maurice Hamilton / Paperback / November 1996

Eddie Irvine's first season with Ferrari was always going to represent a challenge for him as he struggled to get to grips with a temperamental car and to come to terms with being in the shadow of team-mate and double World Champion Michael Schumacher. In this book, Irvine demonstrates his renewed appetite for the battle on the track as he plays his full part in Ferrari's renaissance as a serious pretender to the Formula One Constructor's throne. Among the 1997 season's highlights, Irvine explains his reaction to the criticism of his aggressive style of driving which led to a pile-up in the Australian Grand Prix, and how his personal goals have changed since his debut season for Ferrari.
