9780001049420: Mansell: My Autobiography

From his early years of struggle when he fought back from a broken neck and having to sell his house to fund his racing, to the years of triumph when he raced neck and neck with adversaries like Alain Proust and Ayrton Senna, it was still Nigel Mansell's will that drove him on. In this book he writes forthrightly about his feelings for fellow contemporaries, as well as his reasons for quitting Formula 1 after winning the Championship in 1992 and what prompted his comeback at the end of 1994.

‘Sometimes it can all go wrong…

‘Going into turn one at the Phoenix Oval, at 180 m.p.h., the car stepped out at the rear and slid backwards, hitting the wall. The gearbox punched a hole in the five inch thick concrete and the full brunt of the shock travelled through the car and was absorbed by my lower back. A cavity measuring fourteen inches by twelve opened up where the fat and muscle had been torn away from the bone and flesh…’

Two weeks later, Nigel Mansell was racing again; and that season he won the Indycar Championship.

Nigel is a hugely courageous, hugely talented Formula One champion and, with 31 Grand Prix victories, one of the most successful in the sport’s history.

This is his story…
