5.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding..., 15 Nov 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Brawn Story: The Man and the Team That Turned Formula 1 Upside-down (Hardcover)
I would recommend this book to anyone with more than a passing interest in the history of Formula One, it delves deep into that remarkable 2009 season which saw the world of F1 turned upside down by Brawn.

This is not a biography of Ross Brawn however so if you wish to discover more about that man then I am afraid we will all have to wait until he either releases an autobiography or someone comes along and pens his remarkable story (something that would be on my list of want books).

What it is though is the race by race account of a great season, one that has reached a nostalgia factor already with the current domination of Red Bull and Sebastian Vettel, charting the against the odds success of a team that didn't exist only a few months before the start of the racing year and the breakthrough of Jenson Button and final glory of the great Rubens Barrichelo.

I really can not fault it, except perhaps that it lacks a conclusion, it would have been a neater ending had it charted the evolution of Brawn into Mercedes and the moving on of Button to McLaren and Barrichelo to Williams, however definitely five stars and one for the collection (I literally could not wait to read it every opportunity I got).
