The blatant pro-McLaren, anti-Alonso bias of this book is unfortunate, and stands out all the more with what has happened since the book went to press. For example, the book states, as purported fact, that Ron Dennis and McLaren management were entirely innocent in the Stepneygate affair, and were unfairly dragged into the matter through no fault of their own by the actions of a single bad apple.
The rules of objective reporting exist for a reason, and this book's editors would look a lot less ridiculous had they followed them. Every page seems a paean to Lewis Hamilton's skills, yes the very driver who threw away the championship. On the other hand, the editors simply gloss over the achievements of championship winner Kimi Raikkonen who fought hard using his extraordinary talent throughout the season. Alonso's own achievements -- the two-time and reigning world champion -- receive barely any mention. In short, the book's slant is rather nauseating to all but the most intractable anglophile racing fans.
