This is the story of Mercedes-Benz?s involvement in motorsport, from the first road trial in 1894, through the little-documented rallying exploits in the 1960s, to the McLaren-Mercedes partnership dominating Formula 1 today. Packed with historical and technical detail, this large-format, lavishly-illustrated book has a strong anecdotal content, including new interviews with drivers from the 1930s and 1950s. There are author interviews with Manfred von Brauchitsch, aged 94, Karl Kling, 90, Hans Herrmann, 72, and Britain?s favorite racer Sir Stirling Moss. The book covers the post-war revival including the sports coup?s that won Le Mans in 1952, the sensational 300SLR racers, and the W196 grand prix cars. Also covered are the Juan Manuel Fangio/Moss partnership, and the famous 1955 Moss/Jenkinson Mille Miglia victory; Formula 1 with Sauber, then McLaren, with profiles of the team principals and drivers; and the US CART Championship and special relationship with the works Penske team. The book contains international race results and key driver biographies.
