A good read but huge mistakes at the end!!!,
This review is from: Burning Rubber: The Extraordinary Story of Formula One (Paperback)A good read, very enjoyable and very readable but was amazed when looking at the list of constructors' championships at the back of the book as it all nearly wrong!!! Right from 1958 -2010 there is a mistake for practically every year. For example apparently Lewis Hamilton won the 2008 championship in a FERRARI and Michael Schumacher won the 1994 world championship in a WILLIAMS! It is like that for nearly ever year. I do hope this is a publishers error and not the Authors error and maybe the publishers should get on to re-printing this book without the mistakes very soon. It is a shame because otherwise it is a good book.

In 1994 Schumacher won the Drivers Championship, but Williams won the Constructors Championship. This is because they are seperate Championships, one of which counts the drivers as individuals, the other the team as a collective. This sometimes results- particularly in years of close competition- in a Drivers Champion who does not drive for the Constructors Champion, eg, 1994, 2008. I think this is where you might be gettting confused.

Agreed. The problem here is that the drivers' and constructors' champions are listed side by side, which could cause confusion.
