Hunting For Victory | James Hunt | Artwork
40 years ago, one of the most talented and charismatic Formula One drivers of all time won the World Championship at Fuji in Japan. James Hunt had already experienced many ups and downs that year, but it was when disqualified points from the Spanish Grand Prix were reinstated that he really began to believe he could do it.
Hunt lost several places and didn’t even know his race position. He just knew he had to overtake as many cars as he could, passing anyone in his way. In the final few laps of the race, Hunt sensationally fought his way into third position – and to his surprise, won enough points to secure the title.
