5.0 out of 5 stars Knowledgeable and insightful look at the F1 roadshow., 31 Jan. 2000
By A Customer
This review is from: Racers (Paperback)
Richard Williams has managed to write a book about F1 which both enlightens and entertains the reader. He clearly has a passion for the sport, and the book reminds us, in case we have forgotten, what it is about F1 that makes millions follw it religiously year after year. The author is as objective about the personalities involved as I suppose one can be, even managing to create some sympathy for Damon Hill (a much harder task than most people realise). It is worth reading if only because Williams manages to get beneath the two-dimensional media constructs of Schumacher, Hill et al. we have been forced to put up with. Because parts of it were originally published as articles in various publications, it doesn't follow the sterile race-by-race formula of so many attempts at capturing the essence of a formula 1 season, and it also rewards repeated readings of selected chapters. The one dealing with Fangio and Moss springs to mind. If you're new to the great sport, buy it.. If you're a long time afficionado, buy it.In fact, the journalism is of such high quality that even the most casual observer of the F1 roadshow should be able to enjoy it. Great book. Can't wait to read his book on Senna.
