His name is inextricably linked to that of Lotus, where he arrived in 1980 to stay there for six seasons during which – despite only taking two victories – he was able to show all his worth by becoming one of the strongest drivers of his time; the sporting rivalry that stood between him and Michele Alboreto is unforgettable, but also the difficult relationship he had with the rising star Ayrton Senna. Great pages of motoring, on and off the tracks, which are relived in this exciting story by Gianluca Teodori.“
