Keke Rosberg, the 1982 Formula One World Champion.

In this 1982 season, the spectacular Finn won one race only, the Swiss Grand Prix held at Dijon-Prenois, and against all odds conquered the World Drivers’ title.

Indeed, at the wheel of the agile and reliable Williams FW08-Cosworth designed by Patrick Head, but much less powerful than the cars (Ferrari and Renault) powered by turbo engines, he was heroic, always in the top 5, and took the world title at the last race of the season, on the parking of the Caesar’s Palace hotel in Las Vegas.

F1 career stats: 114 starts, 5 victories, 5 pole positions and 17 podium finishes.
