Right guys in the last month I’ve finished Brawn Story which was good for some of the anecdotes but generally it didn’t shed that much light on a season that was already very fresh in the memory. I read the Gilles Villeneuve biography which I read faster than any other book I’ve ever read and thoroughly enjoyed it. Also found Senna vs Prost in a pile of boxes upstairs and finished that. And to belatedly answer you’re question KevinC its great and the interview with Prost was very inciteful and a great basis for the book.
I also bought Schumacher: The Edge of Greatness by James Allen which I found was brilliant in the way it showed the contradictions of Schumacher who was clearly such a good man off the track with the man who often did desperate and dangerous things on the track. Also I’m finding myself re-evaluating my past dislike for Schumacher to some extents, although whilst reading the book I still couldn’t stomach some of the things in the early 2000s.
Also Ned I saw Chequered Conflict and the Hamilton biography in the shop and was nearly tempted by them but I don’t think I can bring myself to read them yet. Instead I’m off to order Enzo Ferrari: A life, as I’m finding myself turning more and more into a Ferrari fan not just an Alonso fan.
Anyone else read any good F1 books recently over the summer break?
