Are you prepared for what could be the greatest, most in-depth exploration into history’s most cavalier motoring characters? You may just see something you’ve never seen before (that’s the aim anyway!).
I’ve considered the most famous stories, shocking facts and headlines behind some of the greatest names in motorsport, from iconic characters such as James Hunt, Kimi Räikkönen, Sir Stirling Moss and many more. I will be focusing not on their achievements or racing, but their life off the track and away from the media, which has always controversial in motorsport – especially Formula 1.
Cavalier = Showing arrogant or offhand disregard, dismissive towards acceptable behaviours.
