Emerson Fittipaldi Brazilian driver, nicknamed “O rato” for his characteristic teeth. In 1970 in Formula 1, two months after his debut he already won his first Grand Prix, defending the leadership of the championship on behalf of Jochen Rindt who died the month before in Monza. In 1972 with the Lotus John Player Special he was the first Brazilian in the world championship when he was not even 26 years old: he won the Monza Gran Prix, despite the fact that he was not sure he would see the finish line due to a tank failure.
The following year he feels the pressure of Ronnie Peterson, in Monza to keep contact in the championship fight he expects a favor that Colin Chapman instead does not authorize. He loses the title to Jackie Stewart and goes to McLaren. Where he won the second Formula 1 World Championship in 1974. In his career he won 14 Grands Prix.
