On the 13th May 1950, 21 drivers took to the starting grid for the first race of the newly created ‘World Drivers Championship’. Over 60 years later, more than 800 drivers have embarked on a Formula One career, many of whom remain unknown to the man in the street. Names such as Schumacher, Clark, Fangio and Senna are synonymous with the sport and victory. However the names of Ludovico Scarfiotti, Lee Wallard or Gunnar Nilsson are not so widely known. This book takes a look at these names, and others, to tell the story of the drivers and manufactures who can count just one World Championship Grand Prix victory to their name.
