Mario Andretti can be considered a living legend, a sort of hero of two worlds for his outstanding motor sport performances, both in Europe and the United States. The 1978 Formula 1 World Champion, winner of the 1969 Indianapolis 500, 1965, 1966 and 1984 IndyCar Champion, he also won the 12 Hours of Sebring in 1967, 1970 and 1972, as well as winning the 24 Hours of Daytona and in NASCAR plus 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.
This book covers Andretti’s entire career, recounted by the great champion himself. The central theme is made up of interviews Mario has given over the years, brought together by author Mario Donnini: anecdotes and testimonies which, when read in sequence, bring to life a direct account, not a second hand one, that casts new light on some of the many of the greatest episodes in the history of motor racing. The volume contains hundreds of pictures - many of them previously unpublished -which illustrate the long and unrepeatable career of an all-time authentic icon of motor sport.
