Sex is breakfast of champions. 

James Hunt is not a pilot like others. He was as known for his antics as his driving skills. This partygoer and beer amateur wandered bare foot in the paddocks and proudly wore on his suit « Se xis breakfast for champions ! ». 

1976 : A tragic season.

That year he obtained a last minute car from McLaren. Despite a difficult adaptation he managed to come back on his eternal rival, Niki Lauda. The Austria, leading in the Championship, wil be involved in a serious accident at the Nürburing. 6 weekes after the terrible accident, Lauda, face and hands burned, will drive again his F1. Weakened, he cannont reach the podium on his last races to seal his consecration. In Japon, during the last lap driven under a heavy rain, he volontarily gave up at the beginning of the second lap to expose the safty conditions. Hunt, having to face a flat tyre, heroically reached the 3rd place, which allowed him to win the Championship.
