Winning Is Not Enough by Jackie StewartSir Jackie Stewart is one of the most highly regarded names in global sport - winner of three F1 World Championships, 27 Grands Prix and ranked in the top five drivers of all time. On retiring from the circuit, he went on to build an equally impressive international business career.
In the 1960s and into the 70s, with his black cap, sideburns and aviator shades Jackie Stewart was an unmistakable icon in a glorious era of style, glamour and speed. On the track, his story is one of drama, excitement, tragedy, controversy, celebrity, danger and massive success.
Beyond the sport his life is a compelling tale of battling against the odds and achieving world-wide recognition as an outstanding sportsman, a role model and a highly accomplished and respected businessman.

S ir John Young Stewart is one of the all-time motor racing greats. His win ratio sat just shy of one in three. When it was called for, he led driver boycotts. I was quite comfortable and happy to do so, partly because the last race of the season, the US Grand Prix at Watkins Glen, would have been my th race. By the time it came around in October I had already secured my last world championship at Monza in September.

The difference between F1 then and now could not be more marked. His role in pressing for change is well known, but perhaps less so is the huge emotional toll the deaths inflicted and just how difficult it had been trying to force through better safety standards for drivers. He won titles in for Matra and in and for Tyrrell and retired at the end of that last championship season. Yet he notes with regret the Frenchman was but one of many. He recalls he and Helen counting 57 deaths while he was racing.
