4.0 out of 5 stars Great book, driving legend, 12 Nov. 2009
This review is from: Mansell: My Autobiography (Paperback)
Nigel was driving in the days before PR managers and young driver schools. He pushed himself to the limits, and beyond, to get to where he knew he belonged. In to an F1 car. He then pushed some more to get in to a competative F1 car. Personally signed by Colin Chapman and Enzo himself, not a lot of drivers can say that.
I always like Nigels determination so I'm biased to enjoying this book very much. The details and stories of our Nige against the establishment reinforce the lengths he went to in order to succeed. It was a long and difficult battle, certainly not for the feignt hearted. Driving with considerable injuries would not be allowed today but he did so and triumphed.
Conquering F1 then the ovals of America is a feat few can match. There is good reason why people within F1 rate Nigel in the all time 10 ten. He was a great sportsman, lifting the British crowds at Silverstone and genuinely rising to the occasion to produce one of the most memorable finishes in his Williams. F1 now sorely misses personalities such as Mansell. At a time when cars where hugely physical to drive and racing in perhaps the greatest era he showed us all that determination and a hell of a lot of hard work can get you to the top. I have heard that there are fewer Formula 1 champions than Presidents of the United States. Truly an exclusive club. Truly a driving legend. And you don't see moustaches like that anymore.
