5.0 out of 5 stars A Genius Described in Words...is it possible?, 31 July 2003
This review is from: Michael Schumacher: Driving Force (Hardcover)
When you think of Michael Schumacher, what do you see? Living in the UK doesn't help this situation as many of the brits find the German a bit to....well German. Michael Schumacher is a living genius, a legend of our times. What he can achieve in a Formula 1 car is beyond our thinking threshold because he is so good. He's been a part of the F1 circus for 12 years and ever since that qualifying session in SPA 1991, the eyes of motorsport have checked him many times. I've been a F1 fan since i was 8 (I am only 20 now) and I have seen this young petit German talent blossom into a true great of modern driving and sport. The great thing about Herr Schumacher, is his sheer determination and almost perfection of how and what he does on and off the race track. He knows he has the talent, many people have talent, but he takes full advantage of it, maybe this is why he's constantly compared to other greats especially the late great Senna, but you can't compare, its wrong. Schueys lifestyle of fitness, family and friends keeps him going while on the tarmac or the sofa. Whether you like or loathe the Ferrari superstar, this is a book which deserves to be on every shelf in the world. Its not exactly a biography, but a in depth view of Schumachers day to day obligations. From family, to his first testing role in Silverstone with Jordan to becoming 5 times world champion, its all been very well documented with beautiful pictures of the track, Maranello, Corinna, Gina Marie and Mick. This truly is an exceptional read about an exceptional driver and person.
