'I loved it. I thought it was fascinating - really, really interesting story that he's got to tell... I've known him for years and I learned an awful lot.' Marc Priestley? Kimi Räikkönen is the Finnish superstar Formula One driver with a reputation for being fast on the track and silent off it – until now! In this superb and authorised portrait of Räikkönen, Kari Hotakainen gets to reveal the side of the man that few beyond his close family and friends have ever seen. Enigmatic and private, Ferrari’s former world champion driver rarely opens up to outsiders, but he granted Hotakainen exclusive access to his world and to his way of thinking. It ensures that this will be a book that will delight all fans of motorsport, who have long revered the Finn. Including never-previously-seen photographs from his own collection, The Unknown Kimi Räikkönen takes the reader into the heart of the action at grands prix around the world, behind the scenes as race strategies are planned, and opens up the private side of his life that he normally guards so carefully. With all the cult appeal of I Am Zlatan Ibrahimovic, the raw excitement of Formula One and the insight of the best biographies, this is a book every sports fan will want to treasure.

However, despite the media glare, he has continued to prove his incredible talent and tenacity and remain utterly dominant in his sport. In this insightful biography, bestselling sports author Frank Worrall traces the slipstream of Hamilton's incredible career as the fastest driver on the planet.

Lewis Hamilton is the record-breaking young British hero of Formula 1. His phenomenal debut season was nothing short of a revelation, coming through against all the odds to dominate and revolutionise the world of motor racing. It was an outcome no one could have predicted: thrown in at the deep end 'on a mighty whim' by McLaren team owner Ron Dennis, not only did Lewis have to combat his own nerves and fears, he had to overcome a dissenter within his own camp. With behind-the-scenes insight into the intense rivalry between Hamilton and his teammate Fernando Alonso which threatened to derail the young Briton's dream, and the low-down on the 'spy-gate' scandal, this biography describes how Lewis handled the intensity of the media scrum around his relationship with Nicole Scherzinger and kept his dignity to emerge triumphant as he racked up sensational wins around the world. Now he has even joined iconic speedsters Damon Hill and Bradly Wiggins as a BBC Sports Personality of the Year winner. From his momentous clinching of the 2014 World Championship in Abu Dhabi to the bitter rivalry with former friend Nico Rosberg - which culminated in the German engineering a deliberate high-speed crash - bestselling sports author Frank Worrall traces the slipstream of Hamilton's incredible career as the fastest driver on the planet. This is the ultimate story of the driver whom Sir Jackie Stewart says 'has re-written the rookie rule book'. But he is a rookie no more. Lewis Hamilton has accelerated into pole position to be called Britain's greatest ever race driver.

LEWIS HAMILTON is the undisputed British hero of Formula One. His phenomenal successes have seen him move to third on the all-time Grand Prix winners list and, for a record-equalling third time, plant a British flag onto the mountain-top of motor racing. With behind-the-scenes insight into the intense early rivalry between Hamilton and his teammate Fernando Alonso which threatened to derail the young Briton’s dream, and the low-down on the ‘spy-gate’ scandal, this biography describes how Lewis handled the intensity of the media scrum around his relationship with Nicole Scherzinger and kept his dignity to emerge triumphant as he racked up sensational wins around the world. Now he has even joined iconic speedsters Damon Hill and Bradley Wiggins as a BBC Sports Personality of the Year winner. From 2015’s momentous clinching of a second consecutive World Championship in Texas to the ongoing bitter rivalry with former friend Nico Rosberg -in which the German once seemingly engineered a deliberate high-speed crash - bestselling sports author Frank Worrall traces the slipstream of Hamilton’s incredible career as the fastest driver on the planet. This is the ultimate story of the driver who has gone from being the rookie Sir Jackie Stewart said ‘has rewritten the rule book’ to a triple world champion, accelerating into pole position to perhaps be called Britain’s greatest ever race driver.
