Fame, wealth, drugs, sex, and the rest of globe-trotting 1970s Formula One racing are encompassed in the Lauda vs. Hunt duel. At the '76 German Grand Prix, Lauda nearly died in a fiery crash, only to emerge six weeks later, severe burns on his face and head, to pursue his rivalry with Hunt. It all came down to the last race, a rain-soaked affair in Japan, where Hunt won the championship by the slimmest possible margin. The book is a study in contrasts during an era of Brut aftershave and disco sex parties. James Hunt, legendary philanderer and Formula One rock star, versus supernatural racer Niki Lauda, who in '75 set the first sub-seven minute lap around the Ring.
