Michael Schumacher is the outstanding Formula One driver of the 1990s. Gifted with that blend of superior ability and nerve that defines a champion, he has earned his place amongst the greats of the sport. But he is also a highly controversial figure - feared by his rivals as a ruthless, determined racer who will stop at nothing to achieve his goals, and criticised on all sides for his unwillingness to admit mistakes.
Against the backdrop of Schumacher's quest to win the world championship for Ferrari, this biography examines the contrasting sides of the man behind the headlines. It tells the inside story of Schumacher's fall from grace following his cynical foul on Jacques Villeneuve at Jerez in the 1997 title decider, his doomed pursuit of the 1998 world championship and his astonishing comeback from a leg-breaking accident at Silverstone in 1999.
With exclusive insights into Schumacher's methods, both on and off the track, as well as a close look at the workings of the Ferrari team, this is the definitive book on Michael Schumacher - in every sense, a man driven to extremes.
