Subtitle Uncrowned King of Formula 1

David Tremayne
Price $19.99
Description Description David Tremayne’s acclaimed biography of Jochen Rindt was first published in 2010 and now, to honor the 50th anniversary of the Austrian’s death, Evro is reviving the book in paperback form.

Rindt was widely acknowledged as the fastest man in Formula 1 by the time he reached his peak in 1970, when he tragically lost his life at Monza in Italy, four races before the end of the season. Such was his pre-eminence that year that no rival could overcome his points total and he became the sport’s only posthumous World Champion. As his close friend Sir Jackie Stewart observed in this book’s foreword, "David Tremayne is a wonderful writer who has done Jochen great justice in the words that he has chosen to depict a remarkable man and a remarkable career."
