... champion~

By Timothy Collings

Michael Schumacher became the youngest winner of the Formula One World Drivers' Championship and Germany's first champion after colliding with his only rival Damon Hill in a thrilling conclusion to the 1994 season at the Australian Grand Prix in Adelaide. It was a controversial, but fitting, end to one of the most dramatic and tragic seasons in motor racing history and confirmed Schumacher as the natural heir to the late Ayrton Senna, to whom he dedicated the title.

In this biography, Timothy Collings traces Schumacher's life and career from his early life in Kerpen-Mannheim, through this karting, Formula Ford, Formula Three and Sportscar racing days with Mercedes Benz to the pinnacle of his sport with the Benetton Ford team. This book explains how Shumacher grew up, how his remarkable talent was honed to near-perfection by Mercedes Benz and investigates the background to some of the most controversial episodes of his rise to fame and triumph.

It describes how he develop from his simple origins as a boy blessed with a gift for speed into one of the world's leading sports stars. It explains how this evolution affected him and his private life as his success on the track forced him to leave his home in Germany and take refuge in the Mediterranean principality of Monaco and how he applied his mental strength to overcoming the tragedies of the 1994 season, including the death of his great rival Ayrton Senna, to seize the title in Adelaide and become the new king of Formula One.
