Michael Schumacher is the outstanding Formula One driver of the 1990s. He is amongst the greats of racing, but he is also a controversial figure – feared by his rivals as a ruthless racer, and criticised on all sides for his inability to admit mistakes.
Gifted with that blend of superior ability and nerve that defines a champion, he has earned his place amongst the greats of the sport.
Against the backdrop of Schumacher's quest to win the World Championship for Ferrari, ITV's James Allen examines the contrasting sides of the man behind the headlines.
With the full co-operation of Schumacher and the Ferrari team over two Grand Prix seasons, he 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
