The total dominance of Alberto Ascari's championship years 1952 and 1953 has not yet been
outbidden. He won nine Grand Prixs in a row and set fastest laps in seven successive races.
Regrettably, Ascari still remains the last Italian to have won the drivers' championship. The
author Karl Ludvigsen reveals the character of the racing genius, he depicts the tense pre-
war period in which Alberto Ascari first raced not forgetting to elaborate on Antonio Ascari,
his father's great racing achievements. Ludvigsen furthermore discloses to the reader the
reason for Ascari's sudden parting from Ferrari. The enthralling narrative is ccompanied
by mono and colour pictures contributed by the world's finest motorsports photographers.
