Nigel Mansell is too well known to require us to write a biography – here are just a few details :-

No driver fought harder to get into Formula One racing and few fought harder when they got there. Hugely determined, immensely aggressive and spectacularly daring, he was one of the most exciting drivers ever. With his win or bust approach – 31 wins and 32 crashes – he became the most successful British driver and joined the ranks of the all-time greats in terms of fastest laps, wins and poles. With the Union Jack on his helmet and a chip on his shoulder, he was both quick and controversial. His awkward personality made him some enemies, his heroic performances made him millions of fans. Nigel Mansell was a driven man and it showed.
