As this fascinating biography relates, by the time of his fatal testing accident 12 years later he had established himself on both sides of the Atlantic as a driver of extraordinary versatility. He also founded the team that went on to become one of the most successful in Formula 1. Content includes McLarens fifth-place effort in the 1958 German Grand Prix and runner-up finish in the Autocar F2 Championship- his victory at the 1959 American Grand Prix, where he became the youngest-ever GP winner- his second-place finish in the 1960 World Championship- building and racing his own car, the McLaren M1A- winning Le Mans for Ford in 1966 with Chris Amon, and Sebring in 1967 with Mario Andretti- and success in the Can-Am series as a constructor and two-time driver champion.
